Our bureaucratic overlords don’t know the first thing about running businesses, which are required to make a profit without printing money or stealing it. But they do know how to ram egalitarian ideology down people’s throats. The results are hardly profitable:
Salon and barbershop owners are fuming over the enforcement of a provision that requires them to charge men and women the same prices.
The Wall Street Journal says 138 New York City businesses have received the violations this year. Most of them are salons and barbershops.
The city’s Department of Consumer Affairs began stepping up enforcement last year.
Managers complain that it takes extra time to clean and groom men’s nails, and to wax their backs.
They say it can take much longer to cut a woman’s hair.
Bureaucrats counter these arguments by pointing out that men and women are exactly the same, because moonbat ideology says so.
