    workers who object to doing certain tasks that are part of their overall job description to perform other, commensurate tasks to compensate.  If not performing certain tasks mean they work fewer hours, then, of course they'd be paid for only the hours they actually work.

    Things work out best for those who make the best of the way things work out.

      And that may or may not be what will happen in Saint Mary's County. If those deputy clerks who are allowed to pass on marriages are instead given other tasks at a lower pay grade or end up working fewer hours, but are still paid the same, the net result is that preferential treatment has given to those with prejudices.
