Fired?? I read that the muslim workers “walked out” after a dispute concerning time to “pray”? Serve them right if they lost their jobs through their own actions. Unfortunately, they will all probably go on “the dole” and the taxpayers will have to pay for it. I wonder how many of them were illegal aliens?

Right. They walked out and didn't come back to work,so the company notified them that their employment was terminated.

I’m not surprised really. If you think about what amny have went through to get away from the opressive dictatorship’s they or they parents escaped from then it won’t surprise you to know many see the “messiah” for what he really is!

Don't want to assimilate in the America society then be prepared for the fallout that comes next.

You know, several tears back here in Texas the old Blue Law was repealed and as a result Christians who believed that Sunday was to be kept holy and refused to do business on that day and went to church on that day had to make the decision to keep their faith and beliefs and lose their jobs or be corrupted by the state and their wishes in favor of the big business interests.

So why do the muslins think they should be treated any differently regarding their religious requirements to pray to their chosen deity, what is it, six times a day?! Get with it you muslims if you expect to be treated like one of the regular guys here in America, we all have to make personal sacrifices.

Although born in New Orleans, I lived in Miami Shores for twenty years and worked in South Miami at Mercy Hospital. I completely concur with what you posted. Cubans are a very special group of people.
