    It will be interesting to see what happens in the next 10 years as Boomers hit retirement age full force. Will religious organizations see a resurgence in membership? If so, will they accommodate a suddenly huge demographic of disabled people?

    If you are working some place.... the one who pays your fares doesn't have to accommodate anybody breaking the dress code if he doesn't want to.

    Get over it!

    If you are a religious fundamentalist, why not work in a place that wont give you any trouble? why insist on going to places where your way of dressing will rub the people the wrong way?


    What's wrong with these people?

    your G_d may not care but she believes it is important to her G_d to abide by what she understands to be his expectations. and one of those is to not wear what is taken to be men's clothing, such as pants
    this is America, where we tolerate religious differences

    Do you mind if I prefer you wear neither?

    Kidding aside, religious fundamentalism by definition is obsessed with affectation. Does a God, Yahweh, Allah, the Cosmos, pick one, really care if woman wears pants? Of course not.

    I agree that the fast food chain should accommodate her but I support their right to set the rules when it comes to uniforms. I rebuke government involvement in issues like this where the employee is told what the conditions of employment are but decides to accept employment in a place that has a dress code they donít approve of. This has become another lawyer scheme to blackmail all of us into paying more for our food or ___ (fill in the blank) so they can get rich while pretending to be outraged over something that most of us actually support.

    Why? Because of the definition of ownership.

    Ownership - the right and act of controlling something.

    This gives the property owner the right to control access and use of such property. In this case I said no to guns on my property.
    All I'm saying is that when we both approach eachother with the entitlement mentality, we can't solve the problem ourselves and it ends up in court.

    Folks on both sides of this thread topic are taking the entitlement mentality. IMO the teen didn't need to sue, and, BK could very, very easily allow a skirt.

    All this fuss over a job which doesn't matter anyway. BK replaces cashiers all the time, and teens replace fast-food jobs all the time. There was no harm don to the teen, and there wouldn't have been any harm don to BK.

    It's all a non issue, but that never stops DP from getting all puffed up anyway.

    Exactly. Slaves have no lawful choice about the matter. They cannot quit if the job demands that they violate their conscience. They have no liberty. Instead the owner can beat or kill them. This woman was free to either wear pants, or not work at Burger King. She apparently chose the latter through her refusal to actually perform the job for which her employer was paying her.

    You weaken your case (which is stronger if you stick to equal enforcement of the law) when you engage in moral hyperbole. Burger King is not engaged in human trafficking because they insist their employees wear pants.

    If the basis of the suit is correct and she was assured the skirt would be allowed by the manager before the hire, I think she would be clearly in the right.

    Otherwise, ultimately, you're right, but I don't see an obvious safety or food sanitation advantage in wearing pants over a skirt.

    What does food sanitation have to do with anything? I don't even understand why people are resorting to that. As if BK needs another reason other than a standardized dress code in order to make its employees wear pants over skirts.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    I was once hired as a tech at a casino and I was upfront about my criminal record. I was told that it would not be a problem. 3 months later I was fired because of my record.

    Moral of the story: Just because a manager tells you you can do something it does not mean that they cannot later rescind what they said.
