Where are your moral police now?

Recently word has spread regarding the American franchise 'Hooters' opening up in the UAE; I question how exactly this is possible where we are told things are "against the religious, cultural, political and moral values of the United Arab Emirates"
A copy of the Hooters "employee handbook" obtainted by The Smoking Gun has the following glorious quote (first reproduced by a wikipedia article)
"Customers can go to many places for wings and beer, but it is our Hooters Girls who make our concept unique. Hooters offers its customers the look of the "All American Cheerleader, Surfer, Girl Next Door."
Female employees are required to sign that they "acknowledge and affirm" the following:

  1. My job duties require I wear the designated Hooters Girl uniform.

  2. My job duties require that I interact with and entertain the customers.

  3. The Hooters concept is based on female sex appeal and the work environment is one in which joking and sexual innuendo based on female sex appeal is commonplace.

  4. I do not find my job duties, uniform requirements, or work environment to be offensive, intimidating, hostile, or unwelcome."
