Tyson drops Labor Day holiday for Eid al-Fitr

Workers at Tyson Foods’ poultry processing plant in
Shelbyville will no longer have a paid day off on Labor Day, but will
instead take the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr in the fall.

A recent press release from the Retail, Wholesale and Department
Store Union (RWDSU) stated that a new contract at the Shelbyville
facility “implements a new holiday to accommodate the … Muslim workers
at the plant.”

The RWDSU stated that “the five-year contract creates an additional
paid holiday, Iidal Fitil, a Muslim holiday that occurs toward the end
of Ramadan.”

“The date for this holiday (Eid al-Fitr) is not the same each year,” Mickelson said. “however, it is in the early fall.”

The press release stated there are approximatly 700 Muslims
working at Tyson, but Mickelson said that Somalis only represent
approximately 250 of the 1,200 employed at the plant, a little over 20
percent of the workforce.

“All Team Members who have completed their probationary period are
eligible for all eight paid holidays including Eid al-Fitr,” the Tyson
spokeman said.

The union also claimed that in addition to the observance of the
Muslim holiday, “two prayer rooms have been created to allow Muslim
workers to pray twice a day and return to work without leaving the

Mickelson said that Shelbyville’s Tyson plant “does have a prayer room to accommodate the needs of Muslim Team Members.”

Look out Shelbyville, you could turn into the Twin Cities in
Minnesota. The Somali’s have a very active legal advocate system and
they use it to advance their extremist culture. Don’t expect the
Somali’s to assimilate to American culture. They will use our laws to
make money and then sue to advance their own Islamist ways.

There are plenty more examples of Somali’s forcing their culture on
the rest of us. There’s the Somali Target cashier who refused to touch
a package of pork in Mpls. Target of course bowed to political
correctness and established a policy allowing a Muslim cashier to call
in a replacement. The creeping Dhimmitude in the Twin Cities is well
established. With Tyson importing Somali’s to work in their plants in
Shelbyville expect the Somali population to expand quickly.

So what if they don’t conform to our culture? diversity is a good thing, and you should accept it and treat it like so.

Why are you guys so freaked out about foreign workers? Are you really that scared of them, or are you just worried because you know you can’t match that great toughness and work ethic they bring?

The roofing company I work for uses Mexican workers for our jobs nationally. Forget about their documents; the bottom line is that they perform day after day in all types of harsh weather and tough conditions that most American workers I’ve seen couldn’t handle. That may sound cruel to some of you but it’s the damn truth.

The wave is here, so just buck up.
