    Default Muslims to march against Amazon..

    Talk about Karma?? Wasn't all too long ago that Amazon came out against President Trumps immigration rules and called it basically a Muslim ban.. Now they have Muslims that work at Amazon demanding more prayer time..

    https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politic...prayer-breaks/

    Amazon may have issued a “declaration of support” in January for a lawsuit against President Trump’s order to put a temporary halt to immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries, but that hasn’t stopped outraged Muslims from planning a May 1 demonstration at the front door of the company’s headquarters in Seattle.

    The Service Employees International Union and three Muslim guards who work for Security Industry Specialists, the security contractor Amazon uses to guard its facility, accuse SIS, and by implication Amazon, of refusing to allow the guards space to pray five times daily, even though members of other religions are granted the privilege of using prayer rooms.

    Essag Hassan, a former SIS guard at Amazon, said he was let go because of his request to be allowed to pray on his work break

    Contractors, not Amazon employees. There is a difference.

    They are still marching against Amazon.. It will be Amazon that gets the bad press kinda like United a few weeks ago when they had that guy dragged off the plane.. It was a contracted carrier.. Not United but it had United's name on the plane..

    Your right, but that is the reason Amazon is passing the issue down the line.

    Some of the guards at the New Penn terminals had their own little prayer room ... a 4 by 6 foot shack, complete with a phone and a fan.
