If You Don't Like Work Place Rules, Work Some Place Else

Work is work, NOT A CHURCH...simply stated, if a Muslim does not like the rules that ALL EMPLOYEES must abide by, then they need to go work somewhere else, as this is NOT THE MIDDLE EAST, the work day DOES NOT STOP so that you can pray to fucking MECCA. That is what churches, temples and your homes are. We do not, nor should we make accomadations for someone's religion! I don't want to hear a call to prayer in my neighborhood, and if I have employees, I expect them to put in eight hours of work for eight hours of pay, and NO THERE IS NO TIME TO STOP THE PROCESS SO YOU CAN PRAY TO FUCKING ALLAH! Give us a break, a job is WORK, pray on your own time, regardless of your religious beliefs or your religious denomination.

Muslim leader: 150 workers fired over prayer dispute in Neb.
OMAHA (AP) — About 150 Muslims were fired from a Grand Island, Neb., meatpacking plant that has been embroiled in a prayer dispute, a Somali-American leader said Friday.

Mohamed Rage, who leads the Omaha Somali-American Community Organization, said 80 workers were thrown out after an altercation late Thursday. He says when they tried to return for their shift Friday, they were fired, along with 70 others.

Police said were called to the plant late Thursday amid reports of a riot or serious fight. But when officers arrived, the situation had calmed, said police Chief Steve Lamken.

Muslim workers have been asking for accommodations with break times to allow prayer at sunset. The issue led to walkouts this week — not only from Muslims but from non-Muslims who protested such accommodations as preferential treatment.
