Big Box Store Faces Being Canceled After Refusing To Bend To BLM
Poor liberal nutjobs don't know how to handle being told no. For once a giant chain lumped all political and social agendas into the same category, blocking the use of MAGA and BLM gear. Usually, it's just the MAGA gear making the ban, but Whole Foods decided to cut the crap taking a more fair approach by banning employees from wearing any political or social movement merch with their uniforms.
Liberals were outraged, and took the giant to court:
"Whole Foods is defending itself amid an effort from National Labor Relations Board prosecutors to force the Amazon-owned grocery chain to allow its employees to wear "Black Lives Matter" attire while they are at work, despite the company's longstanding policy forbidding all slogans in its dress code.
NLRB prosecutors accused Whole Foods last month of violating U.S. labor law by allegedly punishing workers who wore BLM masks in 2020. The prosecutors are pursuing labor charges on the basis that workers have the right under federal labor laws to engage in collective action related to workplace issues.
Whole Foods fired back, arguing that BLM has nothing to do with collective action in the workplace, and that NLRB General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo is actually trying to violate the retailer's own constitutional rights under the First Amendment by trying to "compel employer speech."
"The Amazon-owned grocery chain denied any wrongdoing in response to a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) complaint that it had infringed on federal law by enforcing a workplace dress code barring the apparel.
In the Dec. 17 legal filing, Whole Foods accused NLRB general counsel Jennifer Abruzzo of an effort to “compel” speech in violation of the First Amendment.
The grocery chain also accused Abruzzo of “unlawfully infringing upon and/or diluting WFM’s protected trademarks” through her legal action by forcing Whole Foods to allow “political message in conjunction with” its uniforms, Bloomberg reported.
In the filing, Whole Foods argued that the protections offered by the National Labor Relations Act do not extend to “political and/or social justice speech.”
Basically, Whole Foods, an Amazon company, told liberals they can't have it their way which caused them to throw a tantrum.
