I’m getting increasingly annoyed with reading about supposed “
religious discrimination” lawsuits against people who, in my opinion, haven’t done anything wrong whatsoever. One doesn’t get a job, one goes to sue for more than Â£15,000, to compensate for one’s hurt feelings plus an unspecified sum for lost earnings. Are you for real??
Bushra Noah, a 19-year old Muslim woman is sueing hairdresser Sarah Desrosiers for religious discrimination,after being refused a job. The 19-year old insisted on wearing her headscarf at work and hair salon owner Desrosiers had to turn her down since she needed her staff to display their hairstyles to the public.
Fully understandable. The sad thing about this is that a lot of people seem to think that simply sueing for discrimination could be an easy way to make some quick cash, even though they clearly knew what requirements had to be fulfilled for that particular job ect… yet they choose to apply and when they get turned down, hear hear it’s called discrimination and all the employers fault. What to do? Sue them. Ridiculous.
Also I can’t help but wonder, why would a young woman who refuses to show her hair be a hairdresser? And why would she want to work in a hip, modern salon? And why would she want to touch strangers hair, which would include men’s hair, now I would assume that is somewhat of a no-no for Muslim women right?
Personally I think this whole case is a joke and shouldn’t even go to court. Sarah Desrosiers had every right to turn her down. Period.
