Career Waitresses

January 30th, 2008     by Stacey May Fowles     Comments

There’s a piece in the Feb/Mar 08 issue of Bust Magazine about career waitresses. I haven’t had a chance to pick up a copy, but a post on Girlistic brought me to careerwaitresses.com, “a multimedia project that profiles career waitresses aged 50 and older who have been dishing out everything from eggs to insults for up to 60 years.”

The site is worth a look because it, through the beautiful photographs of Candacy Taylor, honours women in a field that of faces the stigma of being “just a waitress,” and values them as “some of the healthiest, most vibrant, hardest working women in the U.S.” The photographs are currently on tour. Check out the gallery here.
