Last week I covered the flagrant abuse of "prayer times" by Muslim workers at Hertz, an ongoing Islamic pattern outlined in my book, Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.
Accommodations for Muslim workers at Hertz resulted in abuse and ....more demands. Muslim workers demanded and received Muslim prayer times, but refused to clock out:
"On the part of workers, they don't want to clock out despite being paid because, according to Thompson, they don't want to feel "monitored" during their religious rituals."
Hertz says that Muslim workers can return to work if they clock out when they pray. They couldn't abuse their prayer times if they clocked out, could they?
Atlas reader Jay commented:
"My friend is a manager at a Hertz shop in town where I live (a large, Midwest city) and interacts daily with the people at the airport here. Hertz sent out a nationwide directive to all employees to not discuss this with anybody (friends, family, etc.), but I managed to get out of him/her this past weekend that the Muslim employees do the same thing here and completely take advantage of the multiple prayer breaks allotted for them daily...and that the only reason why Hertz will not do anything about it here is because the state provides money for the immigrants (aka Muslims) they hire."
Seattle: Hertz says suspended Muslim airport shuttle drivers can return if they clock out for prayer breaks
Reasonable accommodations don't always mean you get everything you want. But this is about getting paid to pray, and making the break a hands-off affair for supervisors. An update on this story. "Hertz: Muslim workers failed to follow break rules," by Laura Meyer for Reuters, October 8:SEATTLE (Reuters) - Hertz rental car company, which was met with protests for suspending 34 Muslim shuttle drivers in Seattle in a dispute over prayer breaks, said it would reinstate the workers if they agreed to clock in and out.Hertz said the Somali Muslim employees at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport were suspended not for praying but for failing to clock in and out for 10-minute breaks as required under a collective bargaining agreement.Washington state law allows employees two 10-minute breaks during an eight-hour shift."This issue arose when breaks for prayers were extended for unacceptably long periods beyond 10 minutes for nonreligious activities, Hertz spokesman Richard Broome said in a written statement issued on Friday night."Individual warnings were communicated as well as a written warning, both prior to the implementation of disciplinary action," he said.Workers protested the Seattle airport Hertz location on Wednesday following the suspensions, which Teamsters Local 117, the union representing the Muslim workers, has called discrimination based on religious beliefs. [...]"Several of our Muslim employees at the Seattle airport are complying and are not affected by the disciplinary action, which undercuts the false contention that this issue is related to prayer or religion," Broome said.
