Florida Seeks to End Dwarf Unemployment-Seeks to Repeal Ban on Dwarf Tossing

It’s interesting that in our great State of Florida, where employees have been restricted in their receipt of unemployment benefits and welfare recipients are drug tested that we do look out for at least on class of the downtrodden, the dwarfs.

That’s right Rep. Ritch  Workman of Florida is seeking to repeal a 1989 law that prohibits dwarf tossing.

For those who are unaware, dwarf  tossing, originally made popular in Australia, involves little people suiting up in Velcro-clad suits, usually at bars. Then patrons compete to see who can through the person farthest up a Velcro surface. The Little People of America lobbied to have the practice outlawed in Florida.

Rep. Workman stated”All that it does is prevent some dwarfs from getting jobs they would be happy to get,” he added. “In this economy, or any economy, why would we want to prevent people from getting gainful employment?”

Will keep you posted on whether this law passes and whether dwarf unemployment dips as a result.
In the interim, feel free to contact Scott Behren and Behren Law Firm with any of your employment law questions.
