Spain: Company introduces veil

A Murcia company has introduced the Islamic veil as part of their work uniform. It means that from January the 850 workers at Agromediterránea S.C.L. can wear a plain white veil if they so want.

The preserves company employs as many as 150 Muslim workers, and it's thought to be the first case of its type where a Murcia company has changed uniform regulations to accommodate the religious customs of their workers.

20 minutos reports that the initiative comes at the women's request.
