Ridiculous and outrageous! What's next? Ramadan substituted for Christimas Day? If the Tyson plant insists on honoring the Muslim holiday, then let them put their money where their politically correct mouth is and give their employees both Labor Day and the Muslim holiday off. I am assuming, of course, that Labor Day would have been a paid holiday for their employees or at least time and a half. Bobby Inquirer USA 39 Posts

I think it is only the beginning. We will see more and more of this as time goes on unfortunately. Like in England, where I believe an Anglican Bishop thought that English Law should accomodate Sharia law of the Muslims. The times ahead or not for the faint of heart. Joanne Inquirer USA 40 Posts

Labor Day is a workers holiday here in America. Everyone is entitled to take off work that day. Where I worked the office was closed on Labor Day. I worked with a Jewish employee who took off for Yom Kippor. I do not know what arrangements were made, but he was given consideration for his religion, even though the rest of us were Christian.

Glory Be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
