Some tech companies are allowing workers to take paid time-off to join protests, especially against “Trump”, according to a Washington Post story by Abha Bhattarai
Facebook will allow employees to take paid time-off on May 1 for pro-immigration rallies.
I did not allow employers any involvement in my personal politics during my long career. Back in August 2001, ING-ReliaStar had a sales conference in August in Minneapolis and gently encouraged “volunteers”. Ii declined. I went to one session and heard one paid speaker predict a 35000 Dow. That is one reason I don’t like to “join in” to “other people’s” causes when often they are factually wrong.
I also had an inherent “conflict of interest” which I have often written about. While working on my first DADT book, I was working for a life insurance company specializing in selling to military officers.
