According to our President, you and I should not buy Goodyear tires.
Why you ask?
A Goodyear employee at a plant in Topeka, Kan., shared a slide that he said came from the company’s corporate office in Akron, Ohio. The slide, reported by WIBW, showed two categories: Acceptable and Unacceptable.
Under “Acceptable” were Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride (LGBT).
Under “Unacceptable” were Blue Lives Matter, All Lives Matter, MAGA and politically affiliated slogans or material.
Goodyear has put out a statement claiming that slide was not created by Goodyear Corporate and isn’t a part of their formal training.
I wouldn’t be shocked if a plant manager added such a slide or something to that nature. Extremely dumb move. Companies the size of Goodyear should avoid any resemblance of political favoritism. Especially at the employee level. If things like MAGA hats and BLM shirts are tolerated, they both should be allowed.
With that … Trump is basically calling for an American based company to be boycotted. A company that had over 15 billion dollars in revenue in 2017. All because his feelings were hurt. Trump and a lot of his supporters rail against cancel culture. This is Trump calling for Goodyear to be cancelled. How does this sit with you?
