    Seven Muslim factory workers fired, 14 resign over prayer break policy at Wisconsin plant

    Seven Muslim factory workers were fired and 14 others resigned over a Wisconsin company’s new prayer guidelines, executives said Wednesday.
    Fifty-three Somali immigrant employees protested Ariens Company’s revoking of their two extra five-minute prayer breaks per day last month.
    Yet 32 of them have decided to remain with the Green Bay-area maker of snowblowers and lawnmowers under the new policy, said company spokeswoman Ann Stilp.
    MUSLIM WOMAN KICKED OUT OF TRUMP EVENT FOR SILENT PROTEST
    Former Ariens painter Ibrahim Mehemmed told WBAY-TV last month that he got a pink slip because he said he couldn’t pray during his lunch break.

    Ariens Company, a Brillion, Wisc.-based manufacturer of lawnmowers and snowblowers, fired Muslim employees over their refusal to adapt to a new policy on the workers' prayer breaks.
    “We pray by the time,” Mehemmed said. “So they say if you guys don’t pray at the break time, they give us this paper to just leave.”
    Company executives have said they shifted the guidelines as the ranks of Muslim workers at the Brillion complex grew to between 30 and 40 workers, causing “unscheduled breaks in production” starting in October and November.
    The manufacturer asked the workers to restrict their worship to scheduled lulls in the workday. The seven workers who were fired kept taking the extra breaks anyway, Ariens said in a statement.
    “Recognizing there are language barriers and cultural differences, we allowed for extra time,” Ariens said. “We would have liked for more of the employees to stay, however, we respect their faith, we respect the work they have done for Ariens Company and we respect their decisions.”

    Former Ariens painter Ibrahim Mehemmed told WBAY-TV he got fired because he didn't want to pray on his lunch break.
    Local Muslims and the Council of American-Islamic Relations had called for the company to accommodate the previously allowed extra breaks. CAIR’s spokesman said Ariens could find common ground with the workers out of “respect for constitutionally-protected religious rights and for the legitimate needs of both employees and employers.”
    Representatives for CAIR didn’t immediately respond Wednesday to a request for comment on the firings and resignations and possible next steps. The organization is also representing nearly 200 former employees of a Cargill Meat Solutions plant in Colorado it said were fired in a similar dispute.
    Observant Muslims pray five times a day, and CAIR has published a guide for employers on how workplaces may adapt for staff who worship. U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission rules state employers “must reasonably accommodate” religious practices that don’t pose “an undue hardship on the employer's operation of its business.”
    Green Bay Masjid Imam Hasan Abdi told WBAY last month that Ariens’ new policy would make it impossible for many workers to pray.

    Seven employees received termination notices like this one while 14 others resigned.
    “If they get fired now, there’s no way they can stay in Green Bay,” Abdi said. “They have to move.”

    The constant prayer thing particularly bent over on the ground like you're begging at someone's feet is a valid reason to be extremely apprehensive of the idea of a 'moderate' Muslim. That sort of submissive mindset is cuckoo.

    Good for them. The Muslims can pray on their own time.

    I hate to sound like some commie

    but you know these companies hire these immigrants assuming they won't demand as much money or benefits as an American,
    they would question safety issues less all that stuff

    then it backfired on them because the people they hired are a bunch of fucking half wits

    now I've heard great things about the arien snowblowers
    but fuck em in this case

    They couldn't find Americans to work at a snow blower factory? Seems like that would be a half decent job. If they are importing these people for cheap labour I would never buy one now ,

    It is extremely hard to focus on your writings with that AV bouncing away on the left. I usually real 5 or 6 words then stare at the AV for 30 seconds and move on.
