Article summary: 

Christians lament discrimination when it comes to employment and the workplace on the grounds of their faith.

They believe that they do not enjoy equal opportunities on the job market in Egypt. Furthermore, they add that discrimination on the career market only adds fuel to their accumulating plight.

According to Lūwīs Tāmir, a Copt, the Egyptian laws are responsible for this. He says, “there must be enough laws that give Egypt's Christians equality”.
