“He said he could remember situations where customers and employees embraced each other for taking a stand against “those perverts,” speaking with reference to LGBT people.”
What a horrible atmosphere. Proof that bigotry feeds and validates bigotry. Good on this employee for getting out and speaking out.
Hate breeds more hate, and with it brings violence. This is just going to contribute to the destruction of people’s lives.
What a lovely man. I hope the company closes for good. :L
I hope he’s got something else to go to. Something tells me he may be putting himself on the job market before the rest of JFC’s staff end up there without having choice in the matter.
Crappy junk food pitched at homophobes sounds like poetic justice to me.
It’s interesting to see that someone on the inside has had the strength of character to leave their job and blow the whistle on this.
If what he says is true, then it will only add to the company’s tarnished reputation, and this will ultimately reflect in their profits.
I am all for free speech and personal opinion, and this clearly demonstrates it works in both directions; Chick-Fil-A can carry on with their bigoted and discriminatory policies, but equally their customers can also say it with their wallets and their feet.
I don’t doubt before long they will either have to substantially change their attitude or end up going bankrupt.
Boycott them. If there is clear evidence of discrimination and harassment of lgbt people within the company, and this story suggests that there must be, prosecute them in any state of the Union where it is legally possible.
