Seattle Somali Muslim Ileys Omar’s panties are in a bunch. The headbag-wearing Muslimah took a job at Hertz rental car company shuttling people to and from the lot. Everything was fine until the shift supervisors started realizing the Muslim employees weren’t clocking out for prayer breaks. Company policy was quickly rectified to ensure that all breaks would be counted as time off the clock, since the employees weren’t productive during that time. Wanting to get paid for lifting her ass without becoming a stripper, Omar disputed the new policy – apparently bending over for Allah was more important to her than building her career.
The Hertz branch’s employees were asked to confirm their acknowledgement of the new policy. Of the 34 Muslims who worked there, only 8 agreed to clock out for prayer breaks. Omar was not one of those eight. The frustrated Muslimah commented: “We feel like we’re being punished for what we believe in.” Uhh, no, there was just a crackdown on your unauthorized breaks. It’s really no different from a company blocking access to Facebook in the office to prevent people from wasting countless paid hours. However, since religion was involved, Omar knew it was a prime opportunity to whine and vent at the company.
“It’s five minutes,” Omar said. “It’s not as big deal as the company’s making it.” Five minutes – per prayer break. During a shift, there are probably two or three breaks. It adds up. Plus, the timing of the breaks can disrupt business activity at the Hertz branch. Omar and the other Muslims who refused to comply with the new policy had their employment terminated. They then gathered a bunch of their Muslim friends and the leftist appeasers of the local Teamsters Union to stage rallies against the company, caterwauling and holding placards accusing Hertz of discrimination.
It doesn’t end there. Omar and all but one of the other terminated Muslims got in touch a local lawyer, John C. Sheridan, to draft a lawsuit against Hertz. The lawsuit alleges that “religious, race, and national origin were substantial factors in the decision to discipline and terminate Hertz Plaintiffs 1-25.” Uhh, how was race at all a factor?! Race has NOTHING to do with taking unauthorized breaks! The lawyer probably worked that in because the leftist-infested establishment of Seattle would side against anyone accused of being racist even if the allegations were blatantly false, as they are.
