Woke Corporations Turn Noses Up At America

Ideology, not profits.

Arrogant woke corporations care more about ideology these days than they do about their bottom line. Senator Marcon Rubio, Republican of Florida, explains.

Rubio: Being a mom or dad is the most important job any of us will ever have. Parents are the first teachers, first authorities, and first clergy. What we do has a direct impact on the lives of our children, but also on our communities and ultimately our nation. It has been true for all of recorded history. “Train up a child in the way he should go,” Proverbs implores. But what happens when a mom or dad’s first obligation is no longer to their family, but to their employer?

There was a time when our nation’s largest corporations were as much part of Main Street as they were Wall Street. They would sponsor company picnics, little league teams, Scouts, and more. They were part of the fabric of our communities.

In many ways, it was a uniquely American tradition. We relied on private businesses to provide meaningful, dignified work. And historically, the goals of those businesses were oriented to useful production. In our best moments, this institutional alignment created stable mass employment that secured the foundation for a dignified life. Put another way, American corporations used to advance the common good. That is no longer the case.

Following the end of the Cold War, our corporate elites began to view themselves as citizens of the world rather than patriotic Americans. The ripple effect was enormous and led to the loss of millions of American jobs. If labor is cheaper overseas, the logic went, then products should be made there. After all, if we’re all citizens of the globe, then American families and communities are no more important than those in Mexico, China, or Vietnam.

The destruction of American communities from Baltimore and Detroit to Manchester and Greenville is well-documented. But what is less widely understood is how this globalist shift impacted corporate behavior. Gone were the days when corporations were just one part of workers’ lives — today work is expected to be their entire life.

Wall Street firms demand upward of 80 hours a week from employees. Big tech firms expect the same, though they try to make it comfortable by providing napping pods, foosball tables, and free food. The message is clear: your home is here. And if your home is at work, you have no time for what home is actually supposed to be: family, faith, and community.

The anti-family sentiment extends well beyond big finance and big tech, though. Just look at the reaction of most major American companies to the recent Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Countless companies, as diverse as Disney and Dick’s Sporting Goods, released statements of solidarity with “people who can become pregnant” and pledging corporate dollars to help those women travel across state lines to secure abortions. It is revealing in many ways, some obvious and others less so.

It reveals cultural corrosion among our nation’s business leaders. All of these corporate CEOs went to elite universities, go to the same conferences, and are members of the same clubs — and all coincidentally think abortion is moral, healthy, and a human right. They cannot believe anyone feels otherwise, even though statistically half their employees are likely horrified their labor is contributing to the death of an unborn child.

I make more then $12,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 11 to 12 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it…
GOOD LUCK..____ http://Www.NetCash1.Com

““There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody.
You built a factory out there—good for you! But I want to be clear.
You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for.
You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate.
You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces
that the rest of us paid for.
You didn’t have to worry that maurauding bands would come and seize
everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this,
because of the work the rest of us did.
Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or
a great idea—God bless. Keep a big hunk of it.
But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that
and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.
NEWEST MEMBER OF CONGRESS,,,,,,ELIZABETH WARREN””
