HIJAB LAWSUIT
(2008-07-25)
(wgvu) - Two Muslim women claim in a lawsuit that a
Dearborn McDonald's would not hire them because they wore
traditional Islamic headscarves.
The Detroit Free Press reports that Toi Whitfield of Detroit and
Quiana Pugh of Dearborn filed the discrimination suit yesterday in
Wayne County Circuit Court.
Dearborn has one of the nation's largest Arab-American and
Muslim communities.
The suburban Detroit restaurant is one of only two McDonald's in
the country that sell halal Chicken McNuggets, certified ritually pure by Muslim religious authorities.
There was no immediate comment from McDonald's.
