LEGAL JIHAD: Not hiring MUSLIMS with bags on their heads ISN’T discrimination, it’s called a dress code

Two Muslim women said they were denied jobs at a McDonald’s restaurant near Detroit because they wore Islamic headscarves, according to a discrimination lawsuit filed by Terrorist Front Group CAIR.

DEARBORNISTAN, MI – Toi Whitfield, 20, of Detroit and Quiana Pugh, 25, of Dearborn, Mich., said they applied for jobs at the McDonald’s but were told by the store manager, “You’re not going to work here if you don’t remove” the headscarf, known as a hijab.

A spokeswoman for McDonald’s said the management company that runs the Dearborn restaurant “has a strict policy prohibiting any form of discrimination.” (Requiring employees to wear the company uniform is not discrimination. Why isn’t it discrimination when places like Hooters won’t hire 80 year old grandmothers or 300-lb fatties?)

The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) today filed an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) complaint against a McDonald’s restaurant in that state on behalf of a Muslim who alleges denial of employment based on her ethnicity and religion.

The Muslim job applicant reported to CAIR-MI that she recently applied for employment at a McDonald’s restaurant in Rochester Hills, Mich. During the interview, she alleges that one of the restaurant managers asked about her nationality and ethnicity and informed her that wearing an Islamic head scarf, or hijab, would be a problem.

The applicant contacted the manager within a week after the interview to inquire about possible employment and was informed that someone else was selected for the position. {NOTE: The restaurant is in close proximity to one of the largest mosques in the state of Michigan.]

“We urge McDonald’s to take immediate action to bring its hiring policies into compliance with long-established legal guidelines on reasonable religious accommodation in the workplace,” said CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid.

He noted that in 2008, CAIR-MI raised concerns with threatened McDonald’s regarding two similar incidents in which Muslim women alleged being denied employment because of hijab.

Walid said Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 requires employers to reasonably accommodate the religious practices of an employee, unless doing so would create an “undue hardship” for the employer.(How about losing customers because they don’t want to be waited on by people who look like terrorists? Is THAT hardship enough for you?)

CAIR has the cojones to pass out  a booklet called “An Employer’s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices” to help corporate managers gain a better understanding of Islam and Muslims.New Religious Discrimination Manual Released

(Nooooo, American’s don’t have to understand Islam. Muslims have to understand American customs and abide by them. If you want to work in America, you don’t get to dictate your own dress code.) CAIR
