A new dress code at a southern Minnesota company prompted some Somali workers to walk off the job because it conflicts with their religious beliefs.

SNIP

The company's new owner, Mike Knowles, says there was an incident recently in which a woman's long dress got caught in a footwear washer.

OSHA has rules prohibiting loose clothing around moving machinery (gears, conveyor belts, etc.) And in my day they were very strict when enforcing it.

Good luck with that. These people know the loopholes much more than we do. They are not here on work VISAs. They find ways to collect welfare, SSI while at the same time working. They fill their Lexus cars up with shelter food handouts to homeless (and I mean FILL them up). They know exactly what the maximum number of dependents they can claim on their income tax and they make sure they use the maximum. If they are one child short and their Somali neighbor is one child more than the max they put that extra child on their own income tax as an independent.

One thing these people are not and that's dumb.

They know how to play the system more than a lifetime 3rd generation American welfare recipient.

After 6 months in USA I've seen them in line waiting to vote in the general elections.

They even have their extra wives and their children in Europe (as polygamy is not legal in USA)but that does not stop them from adding those children in Europe as independents on their income tax either.

They're not going anywhere anytime soon. They have very good lawyers.

These people are NOT yesterday's immigrants. They even make the illegal Mexicans look more pleasing to our society.

Why are these people in our country in the first place? Another group that screwed up their own country so bad they had to leave, and now they’re here with their old, bad habits, screwing up ours.

My nearby home town in So Minn has been infested with an ENTIRE SOMALI VILLAGE brought in by the perfidious halfwits from Lutheran Charities. They have turned much of a formerly idyllic thriving town into a third world toilet. And yes, they are cunning and they are ruthless in scamming the naive Minnesota populace into underwriting their endemic criminality.

I have commented to friends and family remaining in Minnesota that the reason they are so plagued with third world scum in that local society values nothing more than niceness and non-judgementalism, so the third world scum sees them as patsies ripe for the taking. Which they are.

Emma Lazarus must be spinning in her grave.

Company owner Mike Knowles should go ahead and start bankruptcy procedures tonight and begin looking for some million dollar loans to pay for the upcoming lawsuits, as Eric Holder will probably arrive at sunrise with a team of 30 Federal prosecutors wearing sidearms and a TSA SWAT squad. He should also line up a bails bondsman to be at the ready.

Unfortunately, we've been RECRUITING "these type people" for years. They are the ones who worship rats, cows and cock roaches. It will never cease...only get worse.

I have a past with the Le Center area. I have a membership with an area game farm where I hunt with my friends.

I have never seen a black person in the area. Let alone a somali female.

I smell an effort to bus them in and run us out.

Well, they were the one state that went with Mondale.

Forget about the wrestler for gubner and that stuff.

Something in the water up there.

Even if there are laws that I don’t like....I will obey them until it is changed.

They want to establish sharia....not respect the law of the land.

They did not come here with thanksgiving in their hearts.

I live in Minnesota.. Always voted Republican.. This year will likely test that.. (not that it matters.. Obama is gonna win MN anyways..)

It very well could be in the water. I don’t drink tap water.

I use to live in Gibbon MN. Kinda Southwest central Minnesota. I saw this happening then with Senica foods. They bring in workers from Mexico, who take over all the rental properties, trash them then buy up every minivan or car that is 9 years old (weird import law in Mexico)

The Somali’s would move in and go right to the welfare line as well.

With so many out of work American citizens I say we deport all the visa/illegal workers until every CITIZEN has a job that is able to work.

That includes our own welfare queens/kings.

I know what you mean. They really do take advantage of the Minnesota “nice” and naivete; and they don’t do anything about it either when it blows up in their faces.

And tell me how the hell did Ellison ever get elected! Is that primarily Somali-infested territory now?

No they don't. It's the immigration lawyers that enable them. Immigration lawyers are so underrated they escape public scrutiny. They deserve a lot of he blame.

Minnesota only went for Mondale because he was from there. Otherwise, Reagan may have won only DC. Back then politicians used to win their home state no matter what....that all stopped with Al Gore. lol. It looks awful all that blue....I hope we NEVER see a map like that.....The Democrats will have won the entire country if we have a blue map like that again.

The Somalis know more about our system tha we do. I had one tell me that they studied everything abut the US Government as they grew up. The man went on and named every cabinet member from JFK’s White House up to GWB.

If you have a D before your name, you will win. Even if your dead, stupid, illegal or all of the above.
