So, I’m having trouble finding an employer who is willing to employ me, and I’m b/w the ages of 17-44.
Many employers around will only hire you if you work on Sundays. Tractor Supply comes to mind. Most of these jobs would be considered underemployment for me, but its all I can find and they are the most in number.
I am able and have the capacity to be self-employed.
I spoke with a lady in HR today at AVEX, a local employer and a world leader in their field according to them. Their job ad says you must be able to work any day of week and that they don’ t discriminate on religion. I told here I was Catholic and I can’t work Sundays (implying the commandment). She says she is Catholic but that they do allow to come in an hour late on a Holy Day for Mass or whatever, but that you still have to come in.
Employer employment is steady and less risky given that I am not legally responsible to their customer. Self employment is more uncertain, will generate less money and fewer benefits, and I am liable to the customer.
It’s sickening to me the state of our society that believes so much in the economy that we throw out God’s laws. As if painting an aircraft to make a contract deadline is more important than God’s laws.
Should I accept this type of immoral, secular employment or should I proceed along the path of self-employment?
Should these employers be forced to make accommodations for someone like me who truly trusts his God and practices his religion like it was intended by God to be practiced?
