DS still young and living at home has struggled finding a job that's not warehouse work. Finally got a job but its minimum wage etc. He doesn't have a uniform but is supposed to wear certain colours. Fair enough but he's struggling to get straight and I think if an employer is so particular about a uniform they should either provide it or help you buy it

I suppose it depends on the clothing request for instance if it was in hospitality and staff were required to wear black trousers and a white shirt then this I think would be reasonable.
Most people have to buy work clothes unless there is a specific uniform.

I disagree, clothing is so cheap from shops like Primark I’m sure he could get kitted out for not so much.

If young man needs a job these days he is fortunate to be in a position to quibble about the detail of who buys the work clothes, unless these are very specialised and expensive.

Most jobs have a dress code. Most jobs don't provide uniform.
