You are right. They would slaughter you!
I would have had the same problem with my school bus driving job if anyone knew. I had to be careful that I kept to myself the few brave things I did. We just aren't there yet as a society and there is always much at stake. This is always on my mind. I wonder constantly how I could be able to pull off my shirt and work topfree like the other construction workers do. It isn't possible at the job I am at now, and so Peter also keeps his shirt on in respect of me. But I am always thinking about the day it will be possible.
