I heard about this one over a year ago. The fact is that Disney has a very stringent uniform policy for all of its consumer-facing employees that is part of the conditions for employment. They are not going to redesign their uniforms to accommodate the employee's religious clothing requirements, whether it's for a hijab, a Sikh turban, or a yarmulke. You don't like it, work in a non-customer area (as Disney offered) or don't work at Disney.

I agree. They offered her an option.

They went further than that. They even designed a hat she could wear over her hijab in keeping with the theme of the attraction where she was working.

Yes, I was referring to everything they offered. Maybe I should have said options.

So, I'm standing in the Florida heat this June, watching a bunch of costumed/wigged actors dance and sing up in the sunshine and humidity, and I'm thinking: "I hope they pay them a lot. I hope they have really good washing machines for these costumes."

Fedoras are cool.

So say my teens.

I agree. They offered her an option.

They offered her four different jobs where she could wear the hijab and she chose not to. Oh, and she waits two years into the job and then wants to wear the hijab? She's not got a leg to stand on.

Legally, I think they've covered themselves, but what would the problem be with a scarf with Mickey on it?

Disney has specific costume requirements for all their different venues.

Yeah. But Disney are kind of asses.

The fedora option sounds reasonable enough, though.

I wonder if she was just looking for a fight? Because behavior this unreasonable is sometimes someone trying to stir up trouble.

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
