Wal-Mart Fires N.Y. Employee for Criticizing Muslims
Wal-Mart has fired an employee of a western New York store after he posted derogatory comments about Muslim customers on Facebook. The firing follows a request of Wal-Mart by the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations to discipline the assistant manager of the store in Hamburg, a suburb of Buffalo. Along with a picture of Muslim women in traditional dress, the manager's expletive-filled posting read: "Halloween came early this year. ... Do they really have to ... dress like that."
