Ariens to hold news conference on employee prayer break policy (Wisconsin)

9 posts in this topic

Ariens Manufacturing will hold a news conference Monday at 2 p.m. to discuss the company’s prayer-on-the-job policy, which drew pushback from dozens of Muslim employees.

The Brillion-based company’s Chairman/CEO Dan Ariens will address the media. Action 2 News will be there and have coverage tonight.

Read a statement from Dan Ariens below.

Before last Thursday, Somali Muslims employed by Ariens were allowed to leave the production line twice a shift to pray two of the five prayers their faith requires of them daily. They prayed five minutes at a time, designating their specific duties to colleagues.

A spokesperson for the Brillion-based equipment manufacturer said in a statement, in part:

We are asking employees to pray during scheduled breaks in designated prayer rooms. Our manufacturing environment does not allow for unscheduled breaks in production.”

Those affected said praying only during a meal break goes against Muslim practice.

“If someone tells you, ‘You pray on your break,’ and the break time is not the prayer time? It will be impossible to pray,” said Green Bay Masjid Imam Hasan Abdi.

Former Ariens equipment painter Ibrahim Mehemmed held out his unemployment packet and told us, “We pray by the time. So they say, ‘If you don’t pray at the break time,’ they give us this [unemployment] paper to just leave.”

“We are open to any of the employees returning to work under the new policy or will look for openings in shifts that do not coincide with prayer time,” read a statement from Ariens. “We respect their faith, and we respect their decision regardless of their choice to return to work or not.”

Good! F***kem! It's about time that the world stopped catering to their every need. Give those jobs to people who genuinely need those jobs. Like vets. Hopefully this is a trend that all big companies start adopting. Well we can only hope!?

I agree! They're upset because this company is not complying with Sharia law is the bottom line. There are dark places where they can stick Sharia law, but I won't say it here. lol

Lol! Yup! Those people (if you can call them that) are incompatible with western civilization. It's just a matter of time before reality sinks in. Hell even liberals will take note when they can't get their Starbucks in a timely manner because the barista has to drop everything and pray!?

Too Bad..If you don't like the company policy go elsewhere.

What do you think would happen if someone said," I cant work on Sunday because I have to go to Church?"  They are going to tell you to report to work or you are fired!

Whatever, this Muslim privileged is getting to be too much for me.

Ariens might have some job openings soon. You can apply here..

Aye, it gets more ridiculous every day.  Still can't figure out WHY these demanding, domineering are getting so much leeway for everything??@? What is so wonderful that we all want to blow off anyone else but these we bow to?!?! There is no logic to all this, still going with a world-wide spiritual influence/brain scramble. Nothing about their belief system is palatable, let alone worthy of anything but disgust and ridicule.  It's totally Bizarro World stuff... :lulz3:

The squeaky wheel gets the grease, that's why. Americans need to start being the squeaky wheel that doesn't turn unless it turns OUR way. If there are 2 babies in a room, the one that is crying gets the bottle first.

True, but what thought process causes the complete blindness to the danger, the downright evil the Muslims are to the whole world, especially those that are in our midst? It goes against any sense of self preservation and logic.

According to the comments on Yahoo, (quoting an Imam) Muslims can pray at any time to accommodate work schedules so asking for extra breaks is total BS.

Another commented on the quality of snowblowers from this company has dramatically gone downhill...missing parts, bolts loose. I'm not saying it's Muslims but.......
