The appeasement of minority groups at the expense of others is likely to become more prevalent in the future; protest groups, lobbyists and media complicity are all adding up to putting the interests of minorities above all else. But one meat plant in Colorado will not put up with it.
Cargill Meat Solutions in Fort Morgan has a policy in place that allowed it’s Muslim workers time off to pray (up to 5 times a day) and even provided a prayer room; but when they company decided to change its policy, the Muslim workers were so enraged that they walked out in protest.
In the face of protest, there are usually two options for a company to take: capitulation or standing their ground. Cargill stood their ground and fired the workers who refused to come to work. The policy change was not actually all that extreme, Cargill said that if workers wanted to pray, then “they could go home” to pray. The faux outrage of over 200 Somali Muslim workers ended with a staged walk-out. We can assume that the workers figured the factory would capitulate. But they didn’t.
There is a job shortage in America, and while it is important to protect workers rights, the right to pray 5 times a day is not one tat is applied to “all people”, and therefore is a discriminatory right. If they don’t want to do the jobs, there are thousands of people looking for work.
A report coming in from Denver says that Muslims were praying at their place of work, which was allowed by company policy in the past. However, recently the company changed that policy and said that if they would like to pray, they could go home.
This isn’t an unreasonable request, but the Muslims in question were outraged and staged a 200 worker walkout. When some returned, the company said “pack your bags!”
About 190 workers, most of them immigrants from Somalia, have been fired from a meat packing and distribution plant on Colorado’s Eastern Plains for walking off the job to protest a workplace prayer dispute.
Ten days ago more than 200 workers walked off their jobs at Cargill Meat Solutions in Fort Morgan.
Depending on the season, the Muslim workers prayed at different times of the day, typically in about five-to-10 minute blocks, Hussein said. But recently a decision was made at the plant to change the practice.
“The workers were told: ‘If you want to pray, go home,’ ” Hussein said.
We all know that the liberals in this country will do everything in their power to make these delicate little snowflakes feel at home in the U.S. by allowing them to do pretty much whatever they want. And Cargill even tried to appease them before the now-infamous incident.
Some of the fired employees have been working at the plant for up to 10 years, Hussein said. Cargill had previously allowed Muslim employees to pray at the plant, even providing a prayer room, he said.
Depending on the season, the Muslim workers prayed at different times of the day, typically in about five-to-10 minute blocks, Hussein said.
Cargill said “no more,” they all walked out…then they got fired, which is what should happen if you walk out of your job. Other companies should follow Cargill’s example: don’t bow to radical Muslims, treat them like you would any other worker and fire their asses if they are being unreasonable!
