Tyler chicken has decided to celebrate Labor Day after all. This year, all employees will receive an additional holiday as the Muslim holiday commemorating the end of Ramadan will be observed. In coming years, employees will have the option of a personal holiday, replacing their birthday, allowing them to use the day when they feel best about doing so. This seems perfectly reasonable, though if over half the plant is Muslim and chooses to observe the religious holiday, the plant will be nearly idle that day. Hopefully this works out for the best.
