It'll cost orders of magnitude more in PR, admin and complaint handling than it'll ever save them. All because some internet mong thinks he's come up with a simple solution in under 5 seconds.

What are think is more worrisome about all this pressure on the government to address DA OHBEECITY CWYCIS is the fact they're taking sugar out of products and essentially forcing artificial sweeteners into non-diet drinks. Maybe if they used natural sources like stevia I wouldn't mind but it's almost always shit like aspartame that's probably worse for you than the sugar was.

Charging more for things that cost more to make isn't discrimination ffs

It's like saying that men are dscriminated against because their food bills are higher than women's, even though it's because men need to eat more than women.

It's actually the same shit logic as the 'gender pay gap'. You could say there's a gender food bill gap. Where does it end?

Or even fat people could claim their food bills should be the same as a 5 foot size 6 woman, because otherwise it's discriminatory against fat people.

Who knows. I'm only relaying an interview I saw with someone on the news. I won't make claims to be an expert in dress making

Another thing is tall people often have trouble finding clothes to fit, so may have to pay more. Or for a longer bed or whatever.

lol wtf, calm down I didn't say it WAS discrimination, I understand it's perfectly legal to charge differently depending on age or whatever else may justify a different price point. They tend to be based on social engineering though, cheaper for pensioners (because they are on a fixed income) for instance. Slapping a bigger price tag on a pair of jeans for taller people might recoup the tiny margin on the products production but its harder to justify a noticeable difference at the till, which is apparently what people are expecting for the fat person to be hit over the head with. If the difference is tiny, it's pointless bothering with and more trouble than it's worth, and if it's a big difference ratcheted up beyond the manufacturing cost, then it implies a social engineering reason, which is a can of worms.

I have a bit of experience with merchants and ecommerce and I can tell you some customers WILL get pissed off if they get a higher price for an attribute they can't do anything about, like their height or just general physique. Look at the backlash Labour got for selling tickets cheaper to ethnic minorities. Plus if it really is all about fabric use then it'd be a financial incentive for people to drop sizes and we all know smallest != healthiest. So you'd get people saying it's rewarding anorexia, blah blah... it'd be a load of hassle and PR management for a business to handle all of that. If they had no choice and their bottom line was literally being smashed to pieces by fat customers, it'd be worth doing, but I highly doubt that's what's happening, so they'd be upsetting their customer base for no reason.

DISCRIMINATION
True, sometimes, beds btw are usually all the same height after a double, queen, king and super king you're paying for extra space at the sides and not so you can fit your feet on.

Merchants are careful about price points on things that are interpreted as unfair, even if they're legal, because it affects customer relations. If they have to because of a legal requirement or it truly affects their bottom line, they do it and will spend the time justifying it because it's worth it.

Charging people more for being anything over the smallest size they do is not worth all the hassle and questioning it'd bring, for WHAT I THOUGHT WERE OBVIOUS REASONS.

Yes I do understand the point you're making of course. It's always gone on though AFAIK and it's only in today's 'get fucking enraged at everything' society that it's suddenly a problem.

If large clothing costs 2p more than small to make, then you're right, but if it's 1 and they're selling thousands of them, why should they lose money?

Isn't what would happen in actuality, that the price of the smaller sizes would simply rise, not the other way round?
