Fox 2 Features McGehee, Rivers in Muslim Brose Dispute Story

- Your religion or your job. That's the decision more than a dozen local Muslim-Americans say they were forced to make by their employer. They kept their faith but lost their jobs. "They felt disrespected," said attorney Cary McGehee. "They felt like they weren't valued by the company and they felt insulted." Hurt, shocked, upset and confused - that's how 26-year-old Dulal Ali says he felt when he says he was forced to choose. "They're telling us choose between your religion or work - so I chose God, obviously," Ali said. Along with 15 other Muslim workers, Ali had been working at Brose Jefferson in Warren back in May during Ramadan. The group was observing their religion by fasting from sunrise to sunset. They requested their meal break be changed to 9 p.m., instead of the usual 7 p.m. "It's nothing new," Ali said. "They did it before for four or five years." "This year the production supervisor said he didn't have to accommodate religion," McGehee said. "That if he accommodated this religion, he would have to accommodate other religions."
