Amazon is under fire after several security guards employed by the company demanded time and a place to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards filed a lawsuit this week contending the subcontractor that employs them does not accommodate their faith, and retaliates against those that speak out. The outraged Muslim guards are planning a May 1st demonstration at the Amazon’s headquarters in Seattle.

Amazon may have issued a “declaration of support” in January for a lawsuit against President Trump’s order to put a temporary halt to immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries, but that hasn’t stopped outraged Muslims from planning a May 1 demonstration at the front door of the company’s headquarters in Seattle.

The Service Employees International Union and three Muslim guards who work for Security Industry Specialists, the security contractor Amazon uses to guard its facility, accuse SIS, and by implication Amazon, of refusing to allow the guards space to pray five times daily, even though members of other religions are granted the privilege of using prayer rooms.

Essag Hassan, a former SIS guard at Amazon said he was fired and not given a reason why, implying he was fired due to his Muslim faith, and vows to speak out for all Muslim security workers.
