    I can see a scenario where... as it builds up over time, not necessarily immediately... that other employees may begin to resent the fact that they have to work harder to pick up the slack.

    One could ask you the same question.
    I doubt she smokes. If anyone else in Wegman's smokes, they take smoke breaks. If she doesn't smoke she doesn't take smoke breaks, and, she is less likely to miss days off. But that's all a load of crap. If Wegman's and its employees support the young Muslim lady, then what is the issue?

    ...they do? The point of the UK law is to say that you can't create a job which will discriminate against a religion - unless the job inherently has some aspects which one religion might not like. Butchers (non-Halal) will inevitably be handling pork, so it's not discriminatory to state that in a job description.

    By counterexample - on the other hand, it would be clearly discriminatory for a job in a bank to include mandatory bacon sandwiches for lunch every day.
    If we were to apply that uniformly, in such a way that no job "discriminated" against any religion, we would have no businesses. We wouldn't even have modern communications, and people would still be dying of smallpox. In reality, these laws are applied selectively to especially squeaky wheels.

    People can choose whether or not to patron a given establishment. Employees can choose whether or not to work for a company. Owners can choose what they are willing to sell or provide.

    But saying you are going to sell/provide something, and then letting your employees refuse to sell/provide it, is ridiculous, and yes, discriminatory.

    I live in near a little town in the desert. We like that. I don't know that we have anything in common with Rochester. But, I don't support the idea of citizens telling a local grocer what it should or should not do. That is the issue as I see it. It is no one's business.
    Contradiction city. If you didn't care you wouldn't post to tell other people that you think they're wrong. If you post to tell other people that they're wrong... you care.

    Chick-Fil-A. Tell me about their corporate practice of not being open on Sunday, for religious reasons, and all the profit they are missing and then talk to me about Wegman's business decision and the bottom line!

    No I don't. Don't put words in my mouth. You care, I don't.

    Assuming the majority of customers buy alcohol or pork products everytime they frequent the store?

    Do they? We don't know this....
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Yet, you're still here debating the topic. Actions speak louder than words. Your protest is denied.

    As they do with smokers who take 10 minute smoke breaks? As they do with workers who take other than Christian holidays?
