Amsterdam Mayor: No Unemployment Benefits for Women who Wear Burka

Job Cohen (Labor), the mayor of Amsterdam, has said that if women cannot find employment because they wear the burka, they should not be entitled to unemployment benefits. He added that he considers it terrible to see a woman in a burka, but he is against forbidding it in general.
