That is religious discrimination and is illegal under the NYS Constitution. While you are not a citizen, if the potential employer is, he/she is bound by the Constitution and cannot discriminate in hiring. Consult with an attorney.

Discrimination based on religious beliefs is prohibited by U.S. federal law and by N.Y. state law, but it is probably hard to prove unless an employer is dumb enough to come out and say s/he is not hiring because you are Muslim.

I would check with the state job service in your area first for job referrals they can give you. Second, if you are a member of a masjid in your new location, check with other members and let them know you are looking for work--they may know of openings or be able to help you find a position faster.

good luck with that. If shaniqua calls me about my rental you can bet your ass I'm not calling her back. If Mohamed calls me about a job I'm sure as hell not calling him back. Leave that equal rights shit for corporate America not main st America.

You are doing a good job as a troll. I do not believe one word of your post.

If your post is actually true:

I would not hire you because your post looks like an un-educated third-grader wrote it.

BUT an employer has the right to establish a dress code. A long veil could also be a safty violation if you are working with machinery. Why did you choose the USA?
