    .....Really? Have you seen the skirts that they wear? They arnt exactly going to be confused with mini-skirts. The opposition to this is just getting more and more ridiculous.

    I've never worked for BK, but I know that it's pants only. I'll give her the benefit of the doubt, being 17 and probably not too observant though.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Jesus, never mind. This is like asking questions about a tree and having everyone argue about the bark.

    Yes, lots of things used to happened in the past. Doesn't mean they're good ideas though.

    Mostly cookery (pan and pot handles) and edges of ovens and shelves...

    There is nothing religious about this issue at all and those trying to make it so are completely missing the point, either purposely or ignorantly.
    Ive seen many women in fast food restaurants wear knee length skirts or longer.

    But once they allow her to wear a skirt, they have to give the rest of the female employees the option to wear a skirt. The other females may decide they want their skirts to be shorter.

    Full length skirts are actually probably safer for spills. You can pull the skirt away from the skin reducing the burn when spilling hot liquids. Pants don't really pull that far away. Non-slip shoes prevent slippage, not pants or skirts.

    And anyway... all those women were barefoot and pregnant. We require shoes, don't we?

    And that would not be covered under Title VII.
