    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Watching football, you see a lot of Brothers with dreads / locks, obviously employed.

    I'm wondering though, what other entity is known for hiring Brothers that wear their hair this way?

    Are there employers other than the NFL embracing Black Men with dreads / locks?

    If so, please name them ... 'cause i see lots of young Brothers with their beautiful dreads / locks, but i have a feeling they hinder them securing gainful employment.

    I hope i'm wrong.

    Thanks in advance.

    :heart:

    Destee

    Here in Washington (Seattle) a lot of guys in corporate jobs and other places hire guys with dreads...I have friends who work at Boeing, Microsoft who wear dreads...
    But then again...this is Seattle....

    That is really good to know Sister! Thank You!

    Even if it is in Seattle, that's fine. Those are big companies. Very very good!

    Glad to read it. Thank You! :)

    I think it really depends on location....Seattle is more accepting and forgiving to appearances..like a lot of places will hire you with piercings, tattoos...But they are more free-spirited up here too and care more about saving paper and hugging a tree...and drinking coffee.. then anything else.

    On this, Phoenix is alot like Seattle. Jobs in various business areas: Teaching, libraries, bank tellers, IT, drivers, *suit and tie* corporates, engineering, gov't office jobs. Not just the cultivated loccs like the brother-ball players are growing, but the uncultivated, root-dread kind, too.


    One Love, and PEACE

    I'm almost certain it is...and an East coast thing as well...the South is in a world of it's own most of the time
