Was this opened for discussion again?

"kid can't comprehend a world w/ legal weed...silly"

Weed is still illegal on a federal level brother. and here in Michigan police departments all got lists of people with medical and caregiver cards with home addresses. Which they said was never going to happen, but it did. When you got that card you waived your right for a warrant for them to enter your house. You can no longer own a fire arm and have a medical card as well. They are even going as far as trying to take driver licenses away from those with cards, which i cant understand. But they state that if you are a patient your going to be driving impaired.

workplace discrimination


Introduce Yourself

so im looking for a new job. the first company i tried to go with was TMC they are known as The Marine Corps of trucking and are very strict, they had a no long hair policy unless you a woman and a no tattoo policy, i didnt even bother arguing with them since from what i read this was not the company for me.

I found maverick transportation out of Arkansas and after almost a month of their recruitment process they have decided to hire me. Now when i spoke to a recruiter in person in my home town i specifically asked him about their policy on long hair, his answer was "you can have long hair as long as its kept clean. You can have dreadlocks as long as they are clean. No gauged ears or hoop earings" thats what made me apply and wait for the almost month to get hired since they pay much more than any other flatbed company i could find.

Today i was supposed to book my flight down to orientation i got my acceptance email with all the things i need to bring with me along with some of their policy's they state for the dress policy section :

Dress Policy

Must be clean and have neatly trimmed hair, beard, and mustache. Must
maintain good personal and dental hygiene.

Maverick does not allow: Pony tails, hoop earrings, facial piercings,
tank tops, hats/clothing or tattoos with lewd or suggestive matter.

Shorts are allowed on Maverick property only, and they must be hemmed or
cuffed.

Please be sure to bring a long sleeved shirt, cuffed or hemmed long
pants, and a pair of steel toed boots. (Some of our customers do not
allow you on their property without them.)

So unless you are a woman sounds like you in fact cannot have long hair or ponytails. What can i say to them to make this an illegal practice. My hair is in fact very clean and in a hair tie even looks neat. I have wasted a month on this and dont want to go work somewhere else for .36 cents per mile. please help, i know soaring eagle was saying in some other posts that this is discrimination and should not be allowed nor tolerated. Im a trucker for god sake. some of those guys look like they just crawled out of a trash can.

General Questions

i think you would get the same headaches if you put your hair up in a really tight ponytail just from your hair being pulled from your scalp. locks are just your same hair with knots unless soaking wet they arent any heavier than loose hair, its not like they form from iron deposits ;)

But if you admitted that you were gay before the policy got changed you got kicked the fuck out. losing all your benefits and pension.

Killing people should most def. be against every moral fiber of every human in the entire universe, we should all love one another, lift each other up and grow as a whole together. But sadly this also isnt the case. Were all wired and raised to believe different things. So if you try to hurt me or my loved ones... i will kill you. plain and simple, i will always protect mines

dreads jobs employment issues

that was back in Vietnam though. and if its part of your religious beliefs chances are killing people is also against those beliefs. This is straight out of the regulation book for the airforce "AFI 36-2903"

Cleanly shaven heads, military high-and-tight or flat-top cuts are authorized. Prohibited examples (not all inclusive) are Mohawk, mullet, cornrows, dreadlocks or etched design. Men are not authorized hair extensions. See Figure 3.1 for sideburns, mustache and beard and for graphic examples of male hair standards.

the only exception i could find were for beards which read:

3.1.2.3.1. During tours of less than 30 days, Air Force Reserve (AFR) and Air National Guard (ANG) chaplains not on extended active duty may request a beard waiver for religious observance when consistent with their faith. For AFR waiver processing instructions see AFMAN 36-8001, Participation and Training Procedures. For ANG waiver process instructions contact ANG/HC.

But this is only for beards and when doing a tour of less than 30 days.

Here it is from the army "r670_1"

18. Hair and fingernail standards and grooming policies
a. Hair.
(1) General. The requirement for hair grooming standards is necessary to maintain uniformity within a military population. Many hairstyles are acceptable, as long as they are neat and conservative. It is not possible to address every acceptable hairstyle, or what constitutes eccentric or conservative grooming. Therefore, it is the responsibility of leaders at all levels to exercise good judgment in the enforcement of Army policy. All soldiers will comply with the hair, fingernail, and grooming policies while in any military uniform or while in civilian clothes on duty.

(2) Male haircuts will conform to the following standards.
(a) The hair on top of the head must be neatly groomed. The length and bulk of the hair may not be excessive or present a ragged, unkempt, or extreme appearance. The hair must present a tapered appearance. A tapered appearance is one where the outline of the soldiers hair conforms to the shape of the head, curving inward to the natural termination point at the base of the neck. When the hair is combed, it will not fall over the ears or eyebrows, or touch the collar, except for the closely cut hair at the back of the neck. The block-cut fullness in the back is permitted to a moderate degree, as long as the tapered look is maintained. In all cases, the bulk or length of hair may not interfere with the normal wear of headgear (see para 18a(1)(a), above) or protective masks or equipment. Males are not authorized to wear braids, cornrows, or dreadlocks (unkempt, twisted, matted, individual parts of hair) while in uniform or in civilian clothes on duty. Hair that is clipped closely or shaved to the scalp is authorized.

Swat is a special response team and alot of those guys are undercover's so they can look however they want to fit in with criminals. they can probably even get away with having tattoo's on their hands and neck.

I have seen plenty of "professionals" like doctors lawyers with locks but never have i seen the person at McDonald's take my order with some wild ass loc's. If you chose to fight for your rights when you haven't been called back after an interview how will you prove that they didnt hire you based on your hair? they will just say they found someone more qualified than you.

Need Advice! Knotty Boy Vs. DreadHQ Removal Kit?


Dread Products

this is because people want perfect loc's with roots that start right at the scalp and no loose hair's and nice round nub ends. this just dosent exist and in my opinion looks boring! these people dont fit the dreadlock lifestyle anyway, there should be a special name for them. Like the ones that get dread extensions, they should just wear wigs

dreads and jobs


dreads jobs employment issues

SE i asked someone in the military if it were possible to keep long hair. they said there is no way in hell unless you are already in and work OSI then you can grow your hair and beard to fit in with locals. Ive never in my life seen a WHITE cop with locs or a beat cop with hair past the shoulders. Im sure if you work undercover you would be cool though. Alot of corporate jobs probably still wont hire you. how are you going to prove they discriminated against you for your hair after the interview? I also think its alot easier for black people to get hired as its much more accepted for them to have loc's
