Was eating lunch downtown today at a small halal takeaway place when two gentlemen sat down at the table next to us. They were obviously university students, and from their beard and looks I could guess they were Muslims.
I overheard the following snipped of conversation.
"So," said the first guy, "Basically, my summer job is going to be minimum wage plus commission."
"Oh," the second guy replied, "with your qualifications, why don't you look for work as a teller at a bank or something? Oh wait, interest, right?"
"Yep." The first guy answered. "Can't work at a place that earns from interest. It's not right for us."
I wonder if everyone thought like him who would study to be an accountant, or a CFO, or an economist? Who would work in the banks? Who would lead the economic development of their nation?
On second thought, sometimes thinking too much is bad.
