Better to go barefoot than buy shoes from a retailer that submits to the terrorist front group CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations).
PHILLY A Muslim saleswoman from Philadelphia, who was fired from her job for refusing to remove her religious head scarf, was reinstated Tuesday and will be reimbursed for her lost wages.
Khadijah Campbell, 23, moved to Dover, Del., when her husband was accepted to graduate school. On Oct. 6, she filled out an application at the Dover store of Bare Feet Shoes, the Montgomery County-based retailer. She interviewed wearing her hijab and was hired on the spot, she said. (Note to retailers, NEVER hire a woman with a bag on her head)
On Oct. 7, her first day of work, a district manager visited the Dover store and ordered her to remove the scarf. She told the manager that she wore the scarf for religious reasons. The district manager then reportedly told the store manager that the Muslim woman must be either moved to a stock room position where she would not be seen or fired if she refused to remove her scarf. He told her the chain did not allow anyone to display their religion and then dismissed her in front of the other workers, and left in tears.said Moein Khawaja, executive director for the Pennsylvania chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
On Monday, CAIR filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. On Tuesday, Campbell was reinstated and the district manager who fired her was suspended, Khawaja said.
Though the store offered her the job back, Campbell said she would not be returning.”I normally have tough skin, but I’m very sensitive when it comes to my religion. The whole thing was very embarrassing,” Campbell said. “This is America, not a third-world country.”
(Of course she won’t be returning. She got her payoff, now on to the next business that she can hold up)
