Managers at a Nebraska meatpacking plant have told Muslim employees, most of them Somali, that shift changes made to meet their prayer demands weren't working and would be ended.The company made an honest effort to accommodate you but this is America, your right to religious freedom ends where it interferes with your fellow workers. If your religion is so inflexible that it cannot adapt to your work schedule then you need to find another job.
Union president Dan Hoppes said Thursday that the workers reacted well to the news, but he didn't know whether they would walk out later in protest as they did Monday. [...]
Counter protests by non-Muslim workers began Wednesday. They said the shift changes penalized them while favoring the Muslim workers.
