A Minnesota man says he lost his job because he had an injury as an airline baggage handler and the job blamed his obesity for the incident . Now, Greg Staff is saying because he lost his job, he can’t pay his mortgage and is in foreclosure on his $155,000 townhouse. Staffa launched the website, http://www.becauseimfat.com .
I know I’ve heard of an obesity tax, where health care insurers make overweight people pay more for insurance, but this fat=foreclosure is something new.
Does Staffa have a case? Can you blame your foreclosure on your chubby size? Did Staffa’s employer discriminate against him because he’s tubby?
