    WARNING: Tyson Foods plans $300 million meat packaging plant in Provo, Utah, with the promise of 800-1200 new jobs Why is this dangerous for local residents of Provo? Because Tyson’s, like most meat packing plants in America, seek out and hire cheap immigrant labor, the vast majority of whom now are Somali Muslims. FCC Some locations in the US have successfully fought the company and saved their towns, others caved to the pressure from Chambers of Commerce and globalist big business interests and their communities were never the same again. Graffiti discovered at Tyson’s meat packing plant Tyson Fresh Meats,...

  • PLEASING THE ISLAMIC FAITH - KFC (Houston) using animals slaughtered under Sharia Law

    KFCs in Houston are now serving meat slaughtered under Sharia Law. The practice of Halal is said to be a much slower, calmer process which begins with a prayer for the animal. Some say this discriminates against non-Muslims. But Paul Shapiro, Vice President for Farm Animal Protection at the Humane Society of the U.S. simply calls it inhumane. "Animals have their throats cut without being rendered unconscious prior to the cutting," says Shapiro. "That's unlike other types of more conventional slaughter where an effort is supposed to be made to render the animals insensible to pain." Rasheed Ahmed with the...

  • Navy buys biofuel for $16 a gallon

    Hot Air ^ | December 11,2011 | J.E. DYER
    Teaming up with the Department of Agriculture (which has a cheery Rotary Club ring to it), the Navy has purchased 450,000 gallons of biofuel for about $16 a gallon, or about 4 times the price of its standard marine fuel, JP-5, which has been going for under $4 a gallon. You won’t be surprised to learn that a member of Obama’s presidential transition team, T. J. Glauthier, is a “strategic advisor” at Solazyme, the California company that is selling a portion of the biofuel to the Navy. Glauthier worked – shock, shock – on the energy-sector portion of the 2009...

The new agreement will increase the number of paid days off for workers in the current calendar year to include both Labor Day and the Muslim observance as paid holidays for workers in the Shelbyville plant. The agreement amends the existing contract negotiated last year, according to a press release from...

    Labor Day Still Recognized at Tyson Foods Union Contract Provision only at Shelbyville, TN Plant Springdale, Arkansas – August 4, 2008 – Contrary to recent reports, Labor Day is still a holiday at Tyson Foods. This issue concerns only the plant at Shelbyville, TN. The majority of employees at the Tyson plant in Shelbyville, TN, are represented by the Retail, Wholesale and Department Stores Union (RWDSU), an American union that asked for and received Eid al-Fitr, as one of their eight paid holidays, in place of Labor Day. This applies only to the Shelbyville plant and resulted as part of...

    Tyson Foods says that Labor Day is still a holiday, but not for the union employees at the Shelbyville poultry processing facility, who will be taking off the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr instead. Meanwhile, the union that negotiated the controversial contract at the Shelbyville plant has removed the original press release announcing the holiday change from its web site, and the union president has described the backlash to the decision as "bigotry." The union had stated in a June 19 press release that 700 Muslims worked at the plant, while Tyson repeated Tuesday that there are only 250 Somalis...

    An estimated 750 to 1,000 Somali refugees are living in Emporia, a magnet because of jobs at the Tyson Foods meatpacking plant. Many have latent tuberculosis. H/T to Texas Fred and his comment thread. Tyson Foods' blatant disregard for the institutions of America is worse than we thought - and it stretches outside just the Shelbyville, TN plant. Here's how the Topeka Capital-Journal under the heading "Somalis arrive in Emporia with tuberculosis" describes the "exotic, new arrivals:" EMPORIA — When hundreds of Somali refugees began showing up to work at the meatpacking plant, nurses Lori Torres and Renee Hively were...

    Well, folks, here it is--the beginning (or maybe the middle) of the end of America as we know it. Tyson Foods is now ending employees' paid day off for Labor Day and, instead, giving 'em the paid day off for the Muslim festival, Eid Al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan. It is the most important holiday in Islam. It will be interesting to see how Tyson calculates which day it is, since Muslims are never really sure on which day or two it falls until right before--and since Shi'ites and Sunnis frequently feud about when it falls. Since I...

    The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU), a union that endorses Barack Obama in his 2008 Presidential candidacy, has negotiated with Tyson Foods to recognize Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr instead of the traditional American Labor Day Holiday.
