    The implementation of sharia law should be prohibited by law at all levels of government in a free society, else it will not remain free for long.

    Wonderful argument sir, claiming my opinion is invalid with absolutely no reasoning behind it. How is that "comically deviated from reality"? Would you work for an employer that is a strict enforcer of Sharia law? I would not. Everyone whom I know, would not. If the employer cannot find sufficient employees in the United States, he will not be able to run his business from there. If he can, then those employees are expressly agreeing to work in conditions that they are aware of before taking the job. As long as he tells them ahead of time, and they are fully aware, it is their decision. Clear free market principle that works when applied in reality. Either back up your argument or respect mine.

    Re: If an Employer Believes In Sharia Law

    I'm not exactly sure how an employer would even accomplish this, but if you're referring to an employer firing an employee for not believing in or supporting Sharia Law, than obviously not. An employer should not be able to impose his/her religious, political, or personal views on their employees.

    There are millions of retail jobs. And millions more who have no job at all. If you fill every job opening in the country, you're still left will millions of unemployed people.
    I don't need millions to live well. As a matter of fact, millions upon millions of people in this country don't need to make millions of dollars per year to live quite nicely.

    If unemployment is bothering you so much, please tell the politicians to create some jobs for these people.

    Yeah, if only it were so easy.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Okay, so remind me of the last time that someone was forced to work someplace in the United States. Prison license plate stamping doesn't count.

    Not the same as "choosing". Pretty much the only "choice" in the matter is to choose from what is offered or not work at all. Choosing from what is offered is not always optimal, good, or even mildly decent. It's like choosing Crap A or Crap B.

    When people make this point they act as if jobs offers are the proverbial low-hanging fruit that is both plentiful and sweet, and it's not that way at all for the vast majority of people.
