I suppose this is the best forum for this, if not, sorry and please move.
This is about two Muslim truck drivers who refused to haul a load of alcohol, got fired and are now suing.
I understand alcohol consumption is against their beliefs, but they weren't being forced to consume the booze(not even touch it, as it's in a
container), just deliver it to its destination.
Now they're suing, saying they were fired because of their religious beliefs. No fellas, you were fired for refusing to do your job. Plain and
simple. I hope the court sides with the trucking company on this matter.
I do understand that the trucking company could have found other loads for them to haul, but where is that line drawn? Jewish drivers not wanting to
deliver any products that may contain pork? The list is endless.
My thoughts are to shut up and do your job. If ya don't like your job or what it entails, find employment elsewhere that is more inline with your
beliefs and morals.
It's a darn shame this company is having to go to court to resolve this issue.
What do the fine people of ATS think on this issue?
