Flawed technology or a technology that discriminates?



December 01, 2016 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: HBI , LB , WACLY

From time to time when I'm waiting at the big box retailer checkout to pay for my purchases I hear somebody has set off the retailer checkpoint security alarm near the store exit. The standard procedure is to get the customer back to checkout to find what item(s) may have been miss scanned and have customer go through the checkpoint security as many times as the issue of what is setting off the alarm is resolved or if the customer becomes shoplifter as they decide to make a run out of the store exit.

There's a phenomena that at times females may set off checkpoint security alarms.Their sent back to checkpoint to find what item(s) may have been miss scanned and go through check point security many times as she keeps setting off the alarms and the issue can't be resolved as she is allowed to leave the store setting off the checkpoint security alarms as she exits the store.

The incident will be recorded as a checkpoint security malfunction and repairs must be made as soon as possible. My thought is retailers nowadays are capable and know how to bring us the lowest prices then why can't they do the same for women's intimates? Does the prices on all women's intimates include the cost average of shoplifted women's intimates? With so many manufacturers making and retailers selling women's intimates like some examples OneHanesPlace, Bali, Fruit Of The Loom, Hane's, Jockey, La Senza, La Vie en RoseMaiden Form, Playtex, Triumph, Vanity FairVictoria's Secret, Warner's, Wacoal, Wonderbra, and etc. why are prices high? Now I leave it to readers to decide.

Because women will pay the higher prices?   You can ask the same reason why it is more expensive to dry clean women's cloths or cut their hair?
