another ACLU supported hijab lawsuit

Reader comment on item: Niqabs and Burqas - The Veiled Threat Continues

Submitted by Larry (United States), Sep 24, 2009 at 14:07

It would be nice if the judicial system could establish some case law that private businesses can control who they hire so that the US can demonstrate that it is not on the road to dhimmi or Sharia law. If an employer has to hire someone who wears a hijab then using the same logic the next step is employers are forced to hire people in burqas. Personally, I prefer the capitalist system, where if you object to a company that refuses to hire people wearing hijabs, then you can boycott the store, and/or establish an alternative store with dress code more to your liking. I think that if people invest money and take risk to start a business, they should be allowed to employ who they choose. She can apply for jobs at stores that appreciate her hijab, or she can start a company where she can determine the dress code.
