Cargill employees walk out of Fort Morgan plant Monday
About 200 employees at the Cargill Meat Solutions plant in Fort Morgan left work on Monday due to what they claim is religious discrimination.
Many of the plant's Somali employees claim that ever since Friday, their bosses have not allowed them to take the five-minute breaks for prayer that their Muslim faith requires them to observe every day. They left the plant at around 3 p.m. yesterday and are threatening to quit for good if the rules don't change.
Meanwhile, Cargill representatives say company policy has always accommodated employees' religious practices, and that nothing changed over the weekend.
