    Re: Sign at Wegmans draws attention

    I read about half the posts. So if I am repeating, my apologies. Several issues:

    1) The employer is apparently now limited in how many such non-pork non-alcohol employees they can hire, or have on at any one time. "Sorry Muhammad, but I already have 3 Muslims on staff who won't do pork. But if you got a Lutheran friend who needs work, send them in".

    2) Such employer is now liable to accomodate an employee who does not want to ring up birth control, correct ? Would we have a different response from folks were there a line that said "no birth control products in this line" ?

    3) Going a step further, what of a pharmacy that refuses to stock any birth control products, to include perscription products such as morning after pills ? Clearly a larger step, but the same concept.

    OBTW, there have been many pharmacies that, due to the religious beliefs of the owner, will not sell contraceptives. And there are states, such as Illinois, that have passed laws requiring at least the sale of prescription contraceptives in any licensed pharmacy in the state.

    Yes, this one issue with this one employee in Wegmans is "cute". But it is the tip of a larger iceberg. I prefer a society where the owners do what they do, and you can take your money elsewhere if you want. But we already know that is not the standard allowed, at least where more liberal doctines prevail.

    but my question is this: will she only not handle ham or pork, or will she also not handle a can of soup or chocolates that may have some ham or alcohol in it?

    there are many things that contain pork. is she gonna read every label to make sure there is no pork inside??

    will she not handle mouthwash? (has alcohol)

    Agreed. And you and I do not agree much.

    Where is the line that she can now claim ? As she becomes more aware of these ingredients ? And what of the customer ?

    And what of other Wegman's. Their manager preference's ? So Wegman's makes some policy to cover this, but it is still fraught with legal issues. What products ? What of accomodating other religions ? Number of employees by religion ?

    Letting people vote with their dollars is fine. Except government doesn't always like that solution.

    What if the other lines are full? Sorry, but I want to check out as fast as possible, not stand around all day waiting. I wonder how the store will handle customers who go through her line with the "banned" items.

    Are you ever going to answer my question? What do you think an employer should do about an orthodox Jewish employee who requests Saturdays off? Should they establish a no-orthodox-Jews employment policy to avoid the problem?
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    give him saturday off instead of Sunday.

    or if they're closed on Sundays, let him take off Saturday..and make up the hours the rest of the week.

    my Uncle is an Orthodox Jew, who would leave his city job every Friday at noon.

    to compensate for this, he stayed an hour late M-Th.

    problem solved.

    And the "problem" was "solved" at Wegman's, but your panties are still in a bunch over it.

    Why would I know? Even more importantly, who cares?

    Hypothetically, let's say the store handles such cases as saying "Well, if you're going to be a selfish prick about it, we don't want your business. Please find a new place to shop at. We'll be fine with our customers who are less selfish." What would you do then?
