[Ed. – You realize that in order for the authorities to find out about it, this woman had to make a complaint. Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be whining lawsuit-monkeys.]
On its website, Barbiere is described as “a high end Gentleman’s Barber Shop” located on Jefferson Avenue.
On March 11, a woman, Diamond Pecjak of Crucible, walked into the shop after booking an appointment online for her and her boyfriend.
Kerri Wonsettler, a barber at Barbiere, said she explained to Pecjak the shop specializes exclusively in men’s haircuts.
Pecjak filed a complaint with the state Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs, and the state’s Bureau of Enforcement and Investigation researched the complaint.
The board fined the shop $750 for gender discrimination. …
Nearly 100 supporters of Barbiere signed a petition in opposition of the board’s ruling.
