Muslim Women Claim Religious Discrimination Over Uniform Policy

Six Somali women allege they were fired by a Minnesota tortilla factory for refusing to wear uniforms that they say were immodest by Islamic standards.  The women claim they were ordered to wear pants and shirts to work instead of their traditional Islamic clothing of loose-fitting skirts and scarves.

The group is being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the women have filed a religious discrimination complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  CAIR has issued a press release calling on Mission Foods to reinstate the women in their jobs.

Gruma Corporation, which is the Texas-based parent company of Mission Foods, released a statement denying that any employees were terminated or disciplined at the plant, but made it clear that the women have been relieved of their responsibilities for the time being and may lose their jobs if they will not wear uniforms per company policy.  The statement went on to say that “these positions need to be filled as soon as possible and cannot be held indefinitely.”

CAIR is an organization that has ties to HAMAS and has regularly used our own legal system to force American corporations, organizations, and individuals to give up their policies, beliefs or methods of operation to force Islamic religious beliefs into the American mainstream.

In this case, Mission Foods has a uniform policy which is their right.  There is nothing forcing these women to work there if they object to wearing the uniform.  That is their right.

We, as patriots, should support Mission Foods in this case and urge Gruma Corporation to stand strong against this attack on American ideals and American way of life.

  1. THIS IS AN ACT OF CRUELTY, IT IS UNFAIR, IT IS TOTTALLY BRUTAL,AND UNACCEPTABLE, NO SENSIBLE RESPONSIBLE CAN ACT AS SUCH EXCEPT AN INORDINATE TRANSGRESSOR BEYOND BOUNDS A SINNER WHO HAS NO HOPE IN THE HEREAFTER, WHO WILL BE DOOMED TO A BOTTOMLESS PIT, INDEED IT THROWS OUT SPARKS HUGE AS FORTS.

  2. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it
    was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m
    thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer
    but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers? I’d certainly
    appreciate it.
