    As long as they wear a tiny shirt and skimpy shorts I don't think the patrons would mind. However I doubt that would conform to the religious beliefs of those wishing to wear a head scarf.

    They should be allowed to not hire her for wearing a head scarf, having tattoos or a guy with long hair or dreds... this decision is ****ed up.

    What about hiring a guy? Isn't their policy sexist?

    If she wants a job she should do what the employer wants and not bitch to SCOTUS about it... should a buddhist monk get a job wear a uniform is required but refuse to wear the uniform because they want to wear their orange robes? This whole thing is freaking retarded...

    I understand that none probably have and why... but it seems that a stink could be made about so many things. Why not just adhere to what the emplyoer wants, as long as it is reasonable.

    Muslim women probably aren't going to be applying for such a job given their religious dress code.

    For the most part it is. I have worked for a major bank and a credit union. They have very specific dress codes as to what is acceptable. If you violate those rules you can get sent home. When I was at the big bank some manager came in on a Saturday in very short shorts. Its generally very casual on a Saturday but I understand he had to leave. Pretty funny.

    That would be rather kinky. It might increase business.
