Student workers at the University of Toledo are objecting to a new rule that will require them to wear khaki pants and a blue shirt with the university logo while on the job, The Toledo Blade reported. University officials said that the uniform will promote professionalism, and that some of the opposition is based on incorrect information that the new rule applies to tutors. Students who are protesting the rule note that they would need to carry their uniforms with them and find a place to change if they don't want to wear the uniform all day. One student opposed to the new dress code told the Blade: “What they’ve told us is that the dress code will help prepare us for the future — yes, if we’re going to become a cashier at McDonald’s, or help people buy sneakers."
