Virtue compelled, or clamping down on economic acts between consenting adults

Let us say that one is an Israeli, not religious, and one who fancies making a bit of cash by working an extra day per week. Try that, and there will be trouble:

"According to the Work and Rest Hours Law, no Israeli employee may work on the day of rest that his or her religion dictates, unless he or she works in a specially designated list of occupations or workplaces. For Jews, that day of rest is Shabbat; for non-Jews, it is either Friday, Saturday or Sunday".

As some individuals have just found out, "
In the event of a conviction, the court may impose a fine of up to NIS 12,900 (£1764) per worker, per day".

Now this is not a question of an employer coercing employees, but rather to all concerned agreeing to working a Saturday . One might add that compelling virtue on the part of shopkeepers but not shoppers is a little skewed.....

What happens to people who state that they have no religion? Or doesn't Israel recognize atheism,agnosticism, humanism, or just couldn't care less.
