Is it right to make employees pay for their own uniform?

Home More advice Jobs & Money

So I just started working at Subway a week ago and they automatically gave me 2 shirts, a visor, a name badge, and an apron on the first day. Today, a week later, my manager gave me my employee packet (paperwork) and the total cost of my uniform is $40 and I have to pay for it! The shirts are $13 each, the visor is $6, the apron is $6, and the name badge is $2. I have never heard of this before where the employee needs to pay for their own uniform. I would have to work a full day to even pay for it! Is this right? Has anyone else worked at subway or experienced this?
