Muslims Fired From Plant Can Reapply After Prayer Dispute

January 8, 2016

About 150 mostly Somali workers who were fired from a Fort Morgan meatpacking plant in a workplace prayer dispute can soon apply to be rehired.

Wichita, Kansas-based Cargill Meat Solutions said Friday it had changed its re-hire policy nationwide to allow workers fired from its facilities to seek re-employment after 30 days, instead of 180 days as it had previously.
