Restaurant owner James Bronkhorst issued an apology Thursday, saying the employee erred and inviting the woman in to discuss job possibilities.

  1. WHY SHOULD YOU HAVE TO APOLOGIZE FOR NOT HIRING SOMEONE. IT IS YOUR RESTAURANT AND YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO HIRE OR NOT HIRE WHOMEVER YOU WISH, FOR WHATEVER REASONS YOU WISH..
