American Airlines Tells Crew: No Pink Accessories For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Yup — October is historically been Breast Cancer Awareness month with merchants, airlines and sports teams adding to fund raising efforts by encouraging staff and works to wear PINK — ribbons, pins, clothing, etc.  There’s even lots of pink appearing in authorized and businesses of all types — including restaurants, police, fire and other first responders. AMERICAN, normally a TC favorite, says they will distribute one “authorized” pink ribbon item that employees are to wear if they like — nothing else pink please! (they say as it interferes with the new uniform look). Maybe “Yellow” would be a better color for American to adopt instead of their traditional red-white-blue???
