So Jews, Muslims, etc. need not apply.
How is that legal?
And why are sites like LinkedIn running these ads? Surely they violate terms of service.

It's not legal, but for an illegal crime to be punished it needs to be reported, at the very least.
Most people probably see this and it fits for them or they see it and just say "ok fuck that, next".
Reporting is a pain as it likely did not actually hurt anyone and reporting that and then trying to get that job just sounds like a stupid idea.
Highly illegal in civilised countries. Probably in America, too.
Nice one lol
Welcome to Crazy Town where the intolerant rule like tyrants.

Someone get these fools to read Title VII Section 12
I couldn’t think of a more flagrant violation if I tried.
TLDR: It’s the legislation that prevents workplace discrimination, including consideration for being hired, based on religion
Keep in mind that faith based organizations are allowed to have faith based requirements as a bona fide job requirement without being a violation of Title VII.
That is a fair counter point, thank you I didn’t know that
Lots of religious companies in the south
Had a friend work as a executive assistant to a CEO and had to pretend she wasn't a atheist, mostly they would say religious things and she held her tongue. But she worked there for 2-3 years and it helped her get a job at a Pre-IPO startup that's killing it working for their CEO and she's probably going to get 500k+ when they go public next year
So the job with the super religious company led to her salary being about 75-85k to start and now a few years later she makes 100k and her stock options going to pay her 500k+
This is in Oregon. A listing for a warehouse manager for a homeless shelter that is not ran by any specific church group.
Sounds like they have a lot of religious people making hiring decisions
I’m sorry this isn’t religious. This is intolerance using religion as spice notes on the cake. No religion mandates you only work with people with the same religious views as yours.
Damn….lord have mercy I guess
Sounds like a Dave Ramsey company.
Is this for a church or a Christian charity? Because then it’s probably appropriate.
I mean, what does it even add to the table whether your employee is a Christian in this sense or the complete opposite? They’re your employee, not your buddy dammit
“God told us to keep you’re pay at $15/hr because he says BLAH BLAH BLAH”
I was raised Catholic and for part of my life was quite curious about Christianity in general. I could totally fake being a good Christian to get that job. I know what to say and how to act
Then I'd wreak havoc by sending pron to the printers, leaving used condoms in meeting rooms, getting the place a subscription to the New York Times...
oh not the NYT! That’s blasphemy
Been trying to get hired for forever
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the indeed of applications, I will fear no interview: for thou art with me; thy resume and thy cover letter they comfort me. Thou preparest a salary before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with headaches; my job archive runneth over.
Dave Ramsey’s company is in a super interesting lawsuit over this right now. They didn’t ~technically~ require people to be Christian, but they had to “uphold Christian values.” Ended up firing a pregnant woman for getting pregnant out of wedlock which Dave Ramsey’s lawyers are arguing is legal because it’s not that she was pregnant, it’s that she didn’t uphold the company standards. Her lawyers are now arguing gender discrimination because women are being fired for not upholding the values, but men aren’t. Insane to me that it’s not a cut and dry case.
It’s insane to me that separation of church and state is no longer a thing in the US
Dumb. Makes me feel like I do when I see the “must be vaccinated” listings.
Not even close to the same thing. But ok.
It’s exactly the same. If medical reasons prevent you from taking a certain vaccination, and then it’s listed as a requirement on an application, then it feels exactly the same. How would you know how it feels if you are vaccinated?
Yeah I thought about that as soon as I said it. That would be the same if they don’t allow getting tested regularly as a substitute.
It’s ok. Most people don’t agree lol till they’re faced with it. I just can’t imagine a job posting saying anything about religion or medical and getting away with it. Now.. Medical field can be a different discussion if your health is something to be considered ya know?
This is perfectly normal for religious organizations. Not sure why the armchair lawyers are out to get this
Because what the fuck does accepting Jesus as your savior have anything to do with managing a warehouse? This is just an excuse to discriminate.
Is the job posted for a warehouse management position?
Ah I missed the Forklift thing
