It is Friday afternoon at the end of the month.  Many of you are thinking about scooting out as early as possible.  The Bullard Edge has a two-question current events quiz for you.

This week’s topic: religious discrimination.  Good luck.

Question #1:

In 2008 JetStream Ground Services assumed a contract with United Airlines to clean aircraft cabins at Denver International Airport.  While JetStream apparently hired a high number of the employees of the prior contract holder, it did not hire five Muslim women who for religious reasons requested to wear hijabs and long skirts (instead of the uniform cap and pants).  The women and EEOC sued, alleging religious discrimination.  JetStream argued that not hiring the women had nothing to do with accommodation; instead, it asserted it did not hire the women because their prior employer did not recommend them.
