Facebook Resists: Pushing Anti-Trump Agenda To Help Immigrant Employees
The multi-billion dollar social media company Facebook made an announcement on Tuesday that it will not be penalizing its employees for taking time off work to participate in a pro-immigration protest on May 1.
According to a Bloomberg report, a spokesman from Facebook emailed them stating:
“At Facebook, we’re committed to fostering an inclusive workplace where employees feel comfortable expressing their opinions and speaking up.”
“We support our people in recognizing International Workers’ Day and other efforts to raise awareness for safe and equitable employment conditions.”
Facebook is one of over 120 tech firms who had signed an amicus brief backing a lawsuit to block the executive order that barred foreign nationals from several predominantly Muslim countries from entering the U.S..
Other huge technology companies, like Google and IBM, have joined Facebook in pushing an anti-Trump and pro-immigration agenda.
