    Maybe. Maybe not. It depends a lot on who did the interviewing.

    Though I would say a business should be free to hire or fire anyone they want for any reason. But if we're going to have these laws, then they need to be equally enforced. No use being a partisan hack on the subject.

    Oh, I agree. I'm just saying that my opinion would not be different. That's what I meant by "from my perspective" (obviously a somewhat vague phrase in this context).

    That wasn't addressed in the article, but I'll bet they do have it covered in their employment contracts.

    Black people have the freedom to not work at a place that doesn't want to hire blacks, eh?

    Can employers establish dress codes or must they honor religious garb? That's a real question and I'll appreciate anyone who has a FACTUAL answer to enlighten me.

    She was not fired due to her religious beliefs. She was fired becuase she refused to put on the proper uniform. I cant tell you the number of times I have been told one thing by one manager only to be told something entirely different by another. What stands is what is official company policy. In this case it is that all employees wear pants. That is not discriination. This case will go nowhere.

    Re: Christian Woman Fired from Burger King for Wearing Skirt Instead of Pants

    She got fired, because she broke dress code. A majority of fast food restraunts have a dress code. A example, at Sonic you have to wear tennie shoes, black pants, and their company shirt and hats. Same with almost every fast-food restraunt I have gone to. Hell, even Chick-Fil-A has one. So, she desevers to get fired.

    Re: Christian Woman Fired from Burger King for Wearing Skirt Instead of Pants

    The one who interviewed her said they would accommodate her and let her wear a long skirt. To me that justifies her wearing the skirt and that she shouldn't be fired for wearing what she was told she could wear.

    Every time I've been interviewed by a fast food franchise, it has been by the store manager. Some of these franchises have two store managers, one for the day shift, one for the night shift, which I suspect is what this store has. Either way, management is management. I was a shift manager for Jack in the Box for some time, and the majority of the training is on complying with federal law, and what will get the store in trouble with the feds and the inspectors. When management ****s up, it's not just the managers name and job on the line, it's the well being of the store as a whole.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
