    Do Jews nearly always buy alcoholic beverages when they shop?

    Seriously, who willingly takes a job at a supermarket where they KNOW that LOTS of pork & alcohol products will be sold, and then after getting hired tells the boss:

    "oh, by the way, I'm a Muslim, so I can't touch any pork or alcohol. I can't touch anything that has pork or alcohol in it. Even if its quadruple wrapped. sorry, but you're gonna have to figure out something for me. thanks!!!!"

    does this mean nothing with ANY pork in it? cause a ****load of meat products & soups, have pork in it.

    and lots of things have small amounts of alcohol, like candies, cakes, even cleaning products.


    this is what we call "chutzpah".

    Wrong, mate. She was hired to do what she is doing with the work accommodation that Wegman's provided. Wegman's has decided that they way it is going to work for her is fine with them. Bravo! I would have thought free market capitalists would have been chuffed to see a company such as Wegman's do as it deems important. What I am hearing from you and Thunder is that businesses have no right to make decisions concerning how they will operate at the end user level. How socialist of you and Thunder!

    sounds like you have selective hearing, and might even be hearing things never said.

    Wegmans can do whatever they want, and I have the right to call it stupid, counter-productive, bad for society and possibly bad for business.

    What concern is it of yours? Now you want to make decisions as to how businesses decide to make a profit and how much profit is best? Shame on you. Unless you have a share of Wegman's you don't have a dog in the fight. Why should you care? Because the lady is a Muslim?

    She was hired to perform tasks spelled out in a ceratin job description, just like every other employee with the same job description. If her religion prevents her from performing those tasks to standard, then she needs to find another job.

    Do they have the right? Of course they do. Is it a good business decision? Far from it.

    If she can't pull her own weight, someone else will, that will effect employee morale and will cost the company money.

    No one is saying that they can't do it, we're only criticizing the idiotic decision to do it.

    sorry Risky, but I didn't author the thread, I just responded to it. is that a problem?

    ...Now you want to make decisions as to how businesses decide to make a profit and how much profit is best? Shame on you. Unless you have a share of Wegman's you don't have a dog in the fight. Why should you care? Because the lady is a Muslim?
    ah, a second person trying to snake in a bull**** accusation of anti-Muslim bigotry. I gotta keep score.

    i think its a poor business decision and bad for society. its my right as an American to voice such an opinion.

    LOL! You HEAR people who post on DP?

    What do you mean "freedom is a two way street"? How does that apply in the context of the discussion? I'm confused.

    It's "homes", not "holmes".

    But buying those items displays what your beliefs are - or rather, what your beliefs are not. She is intolerant towards customers who don't have her beliefs. That is still religious discrimination. "If you don't believe what I do, I won't serve you."

    As to the UK law, I think it's silly. They should start their own butcher and not carry pork products, rather than trying to force the owner to accommodate them, and inconvenience their customers.

    Besides that, there are halal and kosher butchers. Why not work for them if you're so wound up about it?

    Sorry, brother, but your argument started to suck hind tit as soon as you began making it. Wegman's made the changes and the changes probably include her job description. Wegman's seems pleased with its decision, why should you care?
