Casino Employees Required to Wear Flea Collars
If you thought the school dress code was strict, check this out. A New Zealand casino is making all of its employees wear flea collars while on the job. No, it’s not some bizarre fetish club, it’s a legitimate casino, and apparently it’s because of a real flea problem. The problem is so bad in the area in fact, that some nurses in hospitals in Auckland adopted the policy back in December.
According to The New Zealand Herald, health officials are warning against the practice, since the collars emit toxins that could be dangerous to humans. Employees at SkyCityCasino have even been spraying themselves down with insect repellent to ward off the pests, which have been a problem for years.
