Jihad Watch : Amazon is about to pay the price for its politics. Working conditions for Amazon warehouse workers are notoriously
miserable with employees urinating in cups and passing out from
heatstroke. But while American employees can be abused this way, Somali
Muslim migrants have special privileges. Amazon recruited in Little Mogadishu. It’s going to pay the price.
Three Somali women working for Amazon near Minneapolis
have accused the company of creating a hostile environment for Muslim
workers and of retaliating against them for protesting their work
conditions, according to a filing submitted this week to federal
regulators. In a letter with the filing, Muslim Advocates, a nonprofit legal
organization representing the women, asked the Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission to investigate what they argue are “systemic
violations” of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The law prohibits
employment discrimination based on religion, among other things.
The issue at stake, as usual, is prayer space and prayer times. Amazon warehouse workers urinate in cups because they don’t have enough time to use the bathroom and make their quota. So it’s clearly not discrimination. But the facts don’t matter. They never do. As so many useful infidels have found out, the crocodile may not eat you last.
Amazon gives the workers paid breaks to
pray up to 20 minutes, as required by state law, but the employees are
still responsible for maintaining the same “rate,” or how many items
they must pack in an hour. Ms. Alfred said workers could take longer
prayer breaks without pay, for which productivity expectations would be
adjusted. Missing the rate can lead to write-ups
and firing. The women said they and other Muslim workers feared taking
time to pray, making it a “hostile environment” to be Muslim.
The dead Amazon warehouse workers, none of whom were Somali Muslims,
could not be reached for comment about their infidel privilege.
