Tyson is laying off people right and left.Tyson shares dropped 93 cents, or almost 6 percent, to $15.30 on Monday.
I'd say there's a pretty big practical difference. Numerous atheists, pagans, and so on celebrate the purely secular aspects of Christmas. In this culture, there are no purely secular activities associated with Eid.
It is not a NEW paid holiday but a substitution.
When I worked for the state of Arkansas we had the option of taking MLK day or adding it to the Christmas vacation (paid)."Based on the contract, the other paid holidays include: The Team Member's birthday, New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day,"
Could be tricky, since you never know when Eid will be until the night before.
Found an interesting thing while I was looking at Tyson:
Tyson Foods and Syntroleum Corp. plans to build and fund a renewable synthetic fuels facility in Geismar, LA. The plant will convert low grade, inedible fats and greases into renewable transportation fuels for the military and civilian markets. The project budget is $138 million. Construction is expected to begin in October, and mechanical completion of the plant is expected by year-end 2009.
