What's going on here????

Sounds like an interesting story, no??
A Somali-American leader said on Tuesday that 150 Muslims have lost their jobs at a Nebraska meatpacking plant that has been embroiled in a prayer dispute.

The Muslim workers have been asking to be allowed to pray at sunset.

Mohamed Rage with the Omaha Somali-American Community Organization said 80 workers were thrown out after an altercation late Thursday. He said when they tried to return for their shift Friday, they were fired, along with 70 others.

But union president Dan Hoppes said 60 to 80 people quit Thursday, although he didn't know what happened Friday.

They were not asking.. they were demanding. And it was a lot more than time for sunset prayers they were demanding.

Considering they immigrated from a country that is ruled by warring gangs of thugs that hasn't had a stable central government for about 20 years, I'm not sure we should be taking lessons in social organization from the Somali community.
