These workers need to realise that they are in the U.S. and not their native land. To demand a company to adhere to their religious traditions is ridiculous. They should try working in China or Mexico.

I totally agree. When in Rome!!!!

The biggest problem we all have, is accepting guest to our OWN country demanding rights for their own beliefs, and yet, we can't!!

It's more about demanding rights its about causing the instinction of infedels because a non-Muslim is always half a person in some Muslim countries. That is why there is little respect and fear of actually complaining about everything that is Dhimmitude in their eyes. Its about victory of the infedel culture and its all woven in the belief system. You will always be wrong if you are not a Muslim and the ones that let go of their rituals and forget basic Islamic laws are the ones who are more tollerant.
It is a locus eating political idiology its not just a religion, its facism covered in by a cloth of faith that will eat anything in its path.

You know, a good amount of people who founded this country did so on the basis of being outsiders due to religion.

That being said, they can do whatever they want, so long as they can find a job that supports it. You can't sue just because they don't give you lunch when you want. Hell, companies aren't even required to give lunches in my state.

I don't see this ever going to court, a company has the right to set it's own employment standards within the law, and unless there was a pre-employment agreement they will not win.

I noticed in the video they said "fired" but the reporter said "laid off", not sure which it is. I know in Canada "fired" means no employment insurance but if "laid off" you qualify for it. Either way the employer, if he's smart will have a disclaimer in the employment agreement stating something like "hours and duties may change as seen fit", so if you agreed with the employer and your hours change and you don't work them, yes your fired.

What about those other people working there, should the company also compensate them too, even though they are at their jobs and not complaining ? What about their religion, does it not count ?

Simple fact, you work, you get paid, you don't get fired, how hard is that to understand ?

As far as I am concerned these Muslims are Americans and are entitled to equal treatment as any other. They are practising Muslims which means that they are observant of certain requirements that includes praying five minutes five times a day of which two or three occur during a normal working day. If an employer cannot accommodate such needs, then the employer is embarking on an agenda beyond business reasons.

Many companies allow their employees to have smoke breaks only to return to their stations reeking of burnt tobacco. So what is the problem with a quick ritual wash and a few minutes dedicated to the Almighty? Has America become a godless, porn obsessed bigoted society? I wonder what the response would be if an employer decided his Jewish staff abandoned the observation of the Sabbath because it disrupted business or maybe religious holiday leave from work or school was a step too far?

The bottom line is that workers have rights and demands that they abandon issues of conscience is fascistic.
