Somalis and Prayer in the American Workplace

The New York Times published on 7 March 2016 an article titled "Prayer Dispute between Somalis and Plant Reshape a Colorado Town, Again" by Julie Turkewitz. 


A slaughterhouse owned by Cargill in Fort Morgan, Colorado has attracted many Somalis to its relatively good paying jobs.  Some are refugees from the Dadaab Camp in Kenya.  The article reports on a cultural clash between American working requirements and Somali Muslim prayers at the work site.
