Target Is Transferring Cashiers Who Avoid Pork

In the wake of community criticism, Target Corp. is reassigning its Muslim cashiers who refuse to ring up pork products for religious reasons to other jobs at the stores. Target received a wave of criticism earlier this week after the Star Tribune reported in a front-page article that some Muslim cashiers at Target declined to scan bacon and other pork products. They would call over another cashier to ring up the products, or in some cases, ask customers to do it themselves.

Some customers called and wrote Target to complain about the practice; a few called for a general boycott of Target on the Star Tribune’s community blog, buzz.mn.

After the story appeared, Target asked Muslim cashiers who refuse to handle pork to wear gloves or transfer to other areas of the stores. In some cases, Muslim cashiers will be given the option of transferring to other stores. “We are confident that this is a reasonable solution for our guests and team members,” Target spokeswoman Paula Thornton-Greear said in a statement. It remains unclear whether wages would be affected by any job transfers; cashiers are generally entry-level positions at Target.

They should be transferred out the back door. There is absolutely no reason to accomodate these lunatics.

I don’t care what religion you are, this is not about religion, it’s about capitalism, you agree to move this company’s product to customer. If you don’t like it, don’t work here! Failing that, I find you “not fit for duty”. Your paycheck is waiting by the door on the way out.

Employer’s needn’t bow to any clown.

“fire them”

I don’t shop at Target – however if they did fire these nut cakes and stood by their decision – I would go out of my way to give them my business.
