Might be justifiable for safety reasons.
What if an instructor made students 60 and older fire with only one hand? You know, for safety reasons.

There is no "one hand" requirement for qualification.
See my post immediately above yours.
I did and no such one hand firing requirement exists in Texas.
For some reason, your reply is rubbing me the wrong way - intentionally or not.
Your feelings don't mean he's wrong about the law.

That's a beautiful example of ad hominem. Attacking the individual rather than the argument doesn't mean he's wrong about the law. Maybe it suggests the opposite?
And cherry picking my post doesn’t mean that you’ve taken what I said in its entirety. Your absolutely right. My feelings mean nothing more than this: I replied because I found his answer too flippant. As to length of membership and post count, it was neither ad hominem, nor did diminish him at all. It DID point out that I’ve been here long enough to know the difference between one thing and another.

What if, what if, what if..... did you even read my followup post? I think not. If you decide to do so, please don’t cherrypick it like someone else has done.
