Asalaam alaikum,

As expected there were a lot of negative comments posted on the site disagreeing with this decision.  We should write to Tysons showing our appreciation for their decision, it may help to offset the negative feedback as well.

"More Than Half Of Tyson Plant's Workforce Muslim"
"Workers at the Tyson Foods poultry processing plant in Shelbyville will no longer have a paid day off on Labor Day but will instead be granted the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr."

Please read the rest here:
