    Or maybe she had never ever visited earth before and that was the first time she went into a burger king where everyone wears pants.

    A long skirt could easily be a safety hazard in a close knit fast paced environment like that.

    Or they could do a crazy thing and compromise and let her wear really baggy pants that look like a skirt.

    I've asked this same question a dozen times over in this thread and no one has given me a sufficiant, valid answer.

    Does this girl not have any accountability for her actions? Can she not make decisions as to where she works? And don't give me the whole speild about job scarcity. The girl was 17 years old. No doubt still living with her parents which provided and cared for her.
    Depends on the job. If it pays well enough or if its all that I can find or if I enjoy the job enough then yes I would apply at a business that violates some of my beliefs.

    And your question is irrelevant. First off she was told she could wear a skirt before she was hired. And secondly im sure she didnt think wearing a long skirt would be against the dress code in a fast food place. In fact im pretty sure ive seen an employee at a local BK wearing a long skirt. So no this isnt her fault in any way shape or form. Wanting to wear a skirt for religious reasons is not an unreasonable request nor an uncommon one as far as I can tell.

    It is a foolish reason to fire her, but business should be able to hire, fire, and serve who they please.

Being that is the case why shouldn't the employer be allowed to dicate that she adhere to the dress code? Which again, she knew about before she applied for the job.
    She didnt know the dress code before being hired. She was told wearing skirts is ok. I checked the BK website where you apply for a job and couldnt find any mention of a dress code.

    No, they should make the shorts shorter, the shirts tighter, have a DD minimum cup size and people that dont like it should go get their hot wings someplace else.

    I have eaten takeout from hooters precisely once. I couldnt give half a damn about girls in tight tshirts serving my food. Why? Because Im not 15 and dont stink of Axe body spray. BUT...if Hooters wants their waitresses to dress like strippers...their business, their rules, and for the luvamike...people ought to deal with that once and for all.

    Amen brother. Some people just cant tolerate the concept of individual liberty. That might explain why it is so frequently absent throughout most of human history.

    Why is it foolish? People are fired daily because they don't conform with dress codes. Again, I've made the case that I myself have tattoos and earrings and I've made sure my employers know for a fact that I will not remove them in order to please them. Why should she be any different? It's pretty reasonable for an employer to expect all employees to conform to a dress code.

    Folks, this is all about the $$$.

    People of faith who get along well with other employees, show up on time, work hard, AND don't shove their faith in peoples face, get promoted, not fired.
    Ironic coming from the man with the religious signature.

    I see. When did you last protest not having a Whites Only restaurant?

    Sure. Just not in the United States. We're more advanced.
