Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.
Tyson Foods has reinstated Labor Day as a paid day off, in addition to keeping the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr.
Yet still, Muslims are offended and have found something to whine about:
"This wasn't something imposed. It seems that this backtracking would be the result of the backlash from anti-Muslim hate (Web) sites and Islamophobes on the Internet," said Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for Washington D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations.
Yeah, us Islamophobes have nothing better to do than to harass the peaceful
of the religion of peace
Stuart Appelbaum, president of the union headquartered in New York, said he was surprised by the reaction to the holiday change.
"I would have thought that people would have been more sensitive and sympathetic to the concern to the members of our community, who want to celebrate their religious faith," he said. "It's a little disingenuous to say that they (Tyson) were responding to employee concerns. The proposal came from workers themselves."
I wonder if the Muslim members of our community would be at all sympathetic and sensitive if Tyson Foods had caved to a group of Jewish employees demanding a Hanukkah day off?
Somehow, I doubt it. I still won't buy Tyson products, especially since the paid day off doesn't assure my food is free of tuberculosis
