In the UK?

If that happened here, it would be front page news and the driver would never drive a  ...

It happened to me with my ex-girlfriend who was black, but need to say it's quite rare. I'm sure it must have happened in the US too, just most people probably ignore it as they don't want the hassle.

Very valid observations!

Why valid observations?

"When in Rome do as the Romans" is a good rule to follow, and if you can't then tough. One should not be in Rome then.

The culture and ethos of the majority should not be modified to accommodate a minority... it is wrong and undemocratic.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

Let me make this simple. A happy workforce is a productive workforce. If the employer chooses to c ...

It must be a european thing to put the worker before the business owner.

I think of it this way...if you annoy customers, you will lose customers.  If you lose customers, you don't need as many employees.  If you don't need as many employees...people get fired and laid off.  As a business owner, you don't want that to happen.  You don't want to lose profits either.

As far as the workers go - you choose for yourself what job and atmosphere works for you.  You don't demand your employer to change everything to make you feel comfortable.  There are hundreds of others out there that would happily take your job and not complain.

Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.

Yes I do know. As I worked in most of these countries in which I asked if I can have Christmas and ...

Working hours are in a contract of employment which might include working any day of the week. Unless it states you get those days off why should anyone have privileges over other staff?

I remember a time in the UK when businesses closed on a Sunday so people can go to Church. The chas ...

Retail businesses are there to serve the public. People who follow a religion are now a minority in the UK. Not all religions have Sunday as their holy day.
