Dearborn: Two Muslim women sue McDonalds for $10 million for not hiring them over Islamic attire
Jihad Watch ^ | July 25, 2008 | Gregg Krupa

Posted on 07/25/2008 5:28:03 PM PDT by Born In America

Fast food restaurants have employee dress codes not only for appearances, but for hygiene and safety. With that in mind, this case is sounding a lot like the case of the women wanting to wear Islamic attire in a Midwestern tortilla factory. The local health inspector isn't going to take kindly to long sleeves potentially brushing perishable food, and/or the grill and fryer oil, to say nothing of guidelines for hand-washing (see also: the debate over short sleeves in British hospitals). Then there is the matter of long attire and the potential need to make a quick exit in the event of a fire or robbery.

$10 million??? At about $15,000/year, you'd have to work there for almost 700 years to make that much money.

How is it they want to work at a restaurant serving non-halal meat?

Islam is creating a lawyers paradise here in America:

They know they’ll never win, but they want to try and sue businesses into submitting to Allah’s will. And the lawyers are loving it.

I recently took my son to Logan Airport where I had a tough time ordering a sandwich from a woman in full Islamic garb. It can’t be too good for business nowadays. If a business can prove their receipts go down because customers won’t patronize them because of the workers’ religious dress, (and at Logan, it made a particular impression) then that business has every right to not hire them. It shouldn’t be too hard to do, either. In this case, I’m thinking they probably owned the business. If sniffing dogs makes THEM uncomfortable, how do they think a burkha makes most of us feel in an airport?

We all know the local mosque put these people up to this. These women no more wanted to work there than a vegan in a slaughtering house. They knew they would be turned down, just another step in tearing down our nation.

What if the Muslim Islamic attire women are laughed at by the homos at the local "gay sensitive" Micky D's? Do the husbands of the Muslim women show up and start "cutting things off?" Who sues whom then? What happens when the Muslim women refuse to serve the homos? What will they do, sue the Muslims?

I think the Muslims and the homos should go out to the parking lot and just have at it. And normal people left in the burger joint can watch through he windows, if the illegals have kept them clean.

Geeze! Does any one have a program?

It's called "lawfare". Sue everyone into submission, get special consideration little by little until you achieve full capitualtion. They take advantage of laws for which they themselves have nothing but contempt.

A few weeks ago in Great Britain a hairstylist was sued by a woman wearing a hijab. As the owner of the shop explained, she sells hair styling. Her clients want to see how her employees take care of their own hair. It's good for business. The hijab doesn't allow for that.

The owner lost.

If you have a Muslim neighbor, wait until the wind is blowing in their direction and grill a large hog or several pounds of pork to drift over their AO.

Exactly! All the retards in this country acting like those of us who have a problem with muslims are just racist. They look at us as if we’re crazy for worrying about what they can and will do to this country. And here it is!

I say the first time that i go into a mcdonalds and have a muslim in full dress wait on me, I will make a stink so bad that the owners will get the point.

Two thigs abot this strike me as odd.

1) McDonalds serves pork sausage, and Canadian Bacon, and regular Bacon

2) McDonald’s issues uniforms. The key is the uniform, meaning “presenting an unvaried appearance of surface, pattern, or color”.

Since the Hijab is not part of the uniform they must remove it if they want the job. It is the same as some brother coming in wearing a dashiki and a fez. Since Michigan is an “at will” state, either don the uniform or work someplace else.

If they really need a job the “gentlemen’s clubs” along Michigan Avenue are probably hiring, but they have “uniform requirements” too.

If they don’t want to be American that is up to them but the rest of us do not have to suffer bad sanitation and a breach of health code just to play nice to the pedophile following cult. The folks down in OZ have it right. If you don’t like the way we do things than you need to live someplace else. And don’t let the door hit you on the way out!!!!

“How is it they want to work at a restaurant serving non-halal meat?”

Once they’re safely hired, they can start making escalating demands.
