And they still want more to pray for the destruction of the kuffar. Laws and rules for Muslims, and laws and rules for everyone else.
2016 is off to a blazing fast start for the murderous jihadists and their suit and tie-wearing co-religionists who wage a different type of jihad…but both for the sharia. On Jan. 1 we asked, “How much further will Cargill go to appease Muslim supremacists?”
The first submission of the year comes via: Cargill changes hiring policy following dispute involving Muslim workers – StarTribune.com
Cargill will change its hiring policy — allowing employees to be potentially rehired 30 days after termination, not 180 days — in response to a walkout by Somali workers in Colorado.
After a dispute over Muslim prayer time, about 150 employees at Cargill’s sprawling Fort Morgan, Colo., plant didn’t show up for work for three days — grounds for termination. They were fired. Some of those workers claimed they weren’t allowed to take prayer breaks, while Cargill claimed that it was still following its policy allowing the breaks.
Minnetonka-based Cargill said in a statement Friday that it will change the hiring policy at all of its North American beef plants, allowing former employees terminated for “attendance violation or job abandonment” to be considered for rehiring 30 days after being fired. The workers would have to reapply for their jobs.
“We believe the change in our beef business policy related to how quickly a former employee may be eligible to reapply for positions at our beef plants is a reasonable update to something that’s been in place for quite a few years,” Cargill Beef President John Keating said in a statement.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which has been representing many terminated Somali workers, said it welcomed Cargill’s change in hiring policy, though it criticized Cargill’s prayer break policy as ambiguous.
Jaylani Hussein, CAIR’s Minnesota executive director, said in a statement that there has been a “pattern of hostility” to prayer accommodation requests at Fort Morgan.
Cargill refuted that, saying in a statement that “the vast majority of religious accommodation requests are routinely granted during each of the plant’s two weekday work shifts.” The breaks, which are granted based on production line staffing, are not guaranteed and are not part of the meal and break periods outlined in Cargill’s contract with Teamsters Local 455, the company said. Teamsters representatives have not returned requests for comment.
Cargill, the largest U.S. private company, is one of North America’s largest beef producers, operating eight major plants, including six in the United States, which together employ 18,000 workers. The Fort Morgan plant slaughters cattle and produces boxed beef.
Since the Somali workers were terminated, it’s been “challenging” to run the Fort Morgan plant at full speed, Martin said. “We’re operating at significantly reduced capacity on the second shift.”
While Cargill has hired some people since the walkout, the labor pool isn’t large in Fort Morgan, a town of about 12,000 people.
Over the past few decades, U.S. meatpacking plants — including in Minnesota — have increasingly relied on immigrant communities for labor. About one-third of Cargill’s workers at Fort Morgan are immigrants, or come from immigrant families from Africa, and are predominantly Muslim. Much of the rest of the workforce there is of Hispanic descent.
As Refugee Resettlement Watch notes: Cargill caves to CAIR, will allow Somali workers to reapply for jobs in 30 days
It all boils down to the fact that ‘Big Meat’ doesn’t want to pay higher wages and so they have become completely dependent on refugee labor. In the meantime, they are changing the face of rural America.
They can get away with cheap wages as long as the federal government (and their resettlement contractors) continue to bring them fresh refugee laborers every year. While they get away with paying low wages, you supplement the refugee family’s income with welfare payments! What a business model for the meatpacking industry.
