In El Paso, Texas, Smart Circle International operates under the name of GATEWAY INTERACTIVE MARKETING. And this office is run by Kyle and Tyler.
While working for them I would work 11 days, and have only one day off. And I would have to attend morning meetings (Mon-Sat) from 8:30-9:30am. Even if I was working afternoons, I would have to go across town for this meeting.
My pay checks, for hours worked, would be 77 hours. All I was paid for was 35-40. AND I HAVE SIGNED TIMESHEETS TO BACK THIS UP!
All I was ever paid was $7.25 an hour. NEVER received the promised comission. I have family that works at Sams, so I have print-outs of what went through the register -- hour by hour.
These people prey on those who need jobs. The quality of the product is very poor. And the bosses position on my religion is poor! I HAVE THEM BOTH RECORDED SAYING VERY BAD THINGS ABOUT ISLAM AND MUSLIMS. (Read what is attached to this post).
Don't work for these people. EVER!
THE FOLLOWING IS POSTED TO MY WEB PAGE!
My Brothers and Sisters in Islam, I have wanted to make a statement. A statement that answers some of what our Christian friends have been saying. Before this, I didn't have first hand experience to respond. Now I do.
On AM radio I hear both talk show hosts, and callers say that Islam is violent, vindictive, and without mercy. Many of these callers say that as Christians they don't discriminate against Muslims. That America is a free country, as long as those who are here are peaceful.
I know s**+'a and Sunni fight -- a stupid battle that must come to an end. We are ALL Muslim. And this fighting adds fuel to the fire for those that seek to bash Islam.
END THE SECTARIAN VIOLENCE NOW!
Now I have an issue. This concerns my job, and a boss that is a militant Christian.
While working for a marketing company I made it clear that I would adjust my break times to follow the timings for Salat. There seemed to be no problem with this. I made lots of sales -- I was one of the top performers for this company.
Well, then there was the backlash I began to receive from my co-workers. They would taunt me, saying 'why would an American become a s**+'a Muslim?' I did my best to answer. I did.
Little things would happen. They began to show me pornographic photos/videos. I would find bacon on my car. They would pretend to speak Arabic and Farsi while I made Salat.
Today, Sunday (October 7th) I was removed from the work schedule, because I am s**+'a Muslim! My boss has made rude remarks about Islam, and Muslims in the past. Today I was told I would not be put on the schedule until I confessed my sins, and became a Christian.
Christians talk about how they love everyone. How they have concern for the worlds welfare. Yet my Christian boss fires me because I won't become a Christian.
Christians, let me ask you this: How is this Christ like? How am I to support my family while I look for a new job? How do I feed my wife and son?
Christians need to stop talking about Islamic affairs until their affairs are in order!
UPDATE: 9 October
I have contacted the Texas Workforce Commission, and the Wage and Hour Board (because I was never paid for all my hours worked). Both of these government agencies cannot help. Why? Because the company I worked for doesn't make over $500,000 a year.
I am going to continue calling around for help. Continue to make Du'a for us.
