Governor Jerry Brown, under the guise of freedom of religion, signed a bill into law that allows women to work with their faces concealed. In other words, they can wear burqas. So if their crazy husbands demand it, they will have to wear it and there will be no freedom for them.
The Democrats have to know that the men will force women to wear these things. THIS is the real war on women.
Burqas represent complete servitude and subjugation of women.
A bill from Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada, D-Davis, that will strengthen workplace religious freedom, was signed into law Saturday.
Gov. Jerry Brown signed AB 1964, which strengthens California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act protecting religious accommodation in employment, according to a news release from Yamada. The bill enjoyed strong, bipartisan support and interfaith cooperation throughout the legislative process and takes effect Jan. 1, 2013.
“This bill is dedicated to all those who have suffered the indignities of ignorance and discrimination in the workplace because of the tenets of their faith,” Yamada said. “No longer will it be legal to segregate a worker from public view because their appearance did not fit a corporate image.”
AB 1964, a number chosen to mark its relationship to the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, makes three changes to Fair Employment and Housing Act.
First, the bill removes the confusion between federal and state definitions of “undue hardship,” clarifying that California has a higher “significant difficulty or expense” hurdle for religious accommodation instead of the “de minimus” standard, Yamada said. Second, the bill specifies that religious clothing and hairstyles qualify as a religious belief or observance. Finally, AB 1964 prohibits an employer from segregating an employee from customers and the public to accommodate an employee’s religious beliefs.
