Amazon has given in to demands from Muslim employees who requested various perks and work changes during Ramadan.
These demands for special accommodation of Islamic religious practice are causing upheaval at Amazon in terms of productivity and morale, as Ramadan coincides with Amazon’s biggest sale of the year: Amazon Prime Day. This is a time of extreme pressure:
Amazon warehouse employees have reportedly resorted to urinating in bottles to avoid punishment for taking a restroom break.
The Muslim employees “chanted in Somali” and slapped management with a list of special Ramadan demands. Their behavior has, not surprisingly, created “tension” with other employees.
Amazon.com Inc. employs more than 1,000 East African Muslim immigrants at four warehouses.
Amazon has unwisely chosen to concede to these demands out of fear of being branded “Islamophobic” by supremacist thugs. The company’s management needs to pay attention to the unraveling in Europe as a result of kowtowing to supremacist Muslims before company morale and productivity decline further.
“Amazon Gives In to Muslim Employee Ramadan Demands,” Charlie Nash, Breitbart, June 7, 2018:
Amazon has given in to demands from Muslim employees who requested various perks and work changes during Ramadan, which also coincides with Amazon’s biggest sale of the year.
According to Bloomberg, the fact that Ramadan was at the same time as Amazon Prime Day this year was “creating tension” among employees in “Minnesota’s Twin Cities region, where activists say Amazon.com Inc. employs more than 1,000 East African Muslim immigrants at four warehouses.”
Employees and other activists protested at the Eagan, Minnesota, delivery center, where they chanted in Somali and handed Amazon management a list of demands for Ramadan, which reportedly included a “call to curb their heavy workloads while they’re fasting and to let them take time off without penalty for Eid, the festival that ends Ramadan.”
Amazon announced that they would provide prayer rooms for employees at work and “would ease up on employees’ quotas for the duration of the fast.”…..
