Some Assembly Required
That is a perfect way to put it, Jason. It's not a chore
Even when mature? Mature locks look great in any professional atmosphere. Any hairstyle can look fine. Check out the mohawk guy that put the new rover on Mars. He doesn't look like your typical punk with a mohawk.
And mention it to her.
Does she think they are dirty or something? I know my mom hated it when I started growing mine too
If you live in the US, it would be. The census has a box to check that just says "spiritual". The Government does acknowledge spirituality, in any form, as protected.
I'd probably quit, just because if you do go to court and win, there would be some animosity. Then they would probably just make life miserable enough that you'd want to quit anyway. Or find other things to write you up for and fire you
So you're growing naturally. For any spiritual reasons?
If you are growing them for anything spiritual, no employer is allowed to fire you for your hair. You are protected by the first amendment. Freedom of religion.
Explain this to your mom. Don't wait until they try to fire you, it may cause bad blood between the 2 of you. Because you can sue and you will win.
That said, if you live in a state that is a "right to work" state, they don't have to give you a reason that you were fired. It's up to you to prove it was unlawful. But I'm sure your mom would tell you. And if you tell her about how it's illegal to fire you for your hair, first she won't try to say it was that.
You could probably wear a plain black tam to cover them. Which might be a good idea in a factory, anyway. Factories can be dusty and you can get crap in your hair. i worked at UPS and wore a tam to keep stuff out of my hair every day. Plus black tams look professional
Cool. I'll be following
That's true. The first time I used it, I had no problem. It was the second time I did that I found residue. And I was a bit more timid about it that time. I figured it was residue left from the first use too. If I pick more up, I'll try using more next time and seeing how that goes
