Minnesota: Muslims at chicken plant win $1.35 million in discrimination suit

When Muslims refuse to handle pork or sue their employer over prayer-times, or demand  a mosque at their workplace, we are no longer surprised. Litigation jihad pays:

In a related case involving an employment agency, The Work Connection, another $150,000 will be paid to 28 people. They refused to sign forms stating they would not refuse to handle pork if they were referred to work at Gold’n plump facilities in Cold Spring, Minn., and Arcadia, Wis.

 

A federal magistrate judge has given final approval to settlements in two religious discrimination lawsuits involving Gold’n Plump Poultry Inc.

Under a consent degree approved last week by Magistrate Judge Jeanne Graham, St. Cloud-based Gold’n Plump will add a paid break to the second half of each shift. That will accommodate Muslims who want to pray during the work day. The chicken processor will also pay $215,000 to 128 Somali-American Muslims who claimed religious discrimination, including discharge and discipline.

Minnesota: Muslims at chicken plant win $1.35 million in discrimination suit

The $365,000 in cash payments was settled last November, as we noted here. The settlement as a whole seems based on Muslim worker complaints that they were denied prayer breaks during work hours, and that they had to sign “forms acknowledging they would be required to handle pork.”

It is likely that the company devised those forms precisely in order to avoid religious discrimination lawsuits like this one. After all, there are plenty of jobs these workers could have taken that would not have required them to handle pork. No one was forcing them to take this one. And that is why this whole lawsuit is more redolent of a stealth jihad initiative to intimidate American businesses into conforming to Sharia norms, rather than a genuine discrimination case.

  1. Because here in Minnesota, we have too many extreme left wing thinkers who have no clue what so ever about what is really going on. Liberalism winks at Islam and is infatuated with it.

    Liberals, Nazis, Muslims = band of brothers
