"Diversity and Inclusion" a.k.a. work visas

"Diversity and Inclusion" in other words:
1) Hire illegal aliens to keep wages low
2) Promote unqualified minorities to corporate positions
3) Code words for "Hate Heterosexual White Males"

Sorry to see Perdue has joined corporate America in groveling to these snowflakes.

Worst company ever to work for. Majority of their IT staff is outsourced and contractors. Not to mention that if you get hurt in a workplace incident they will fire you after coming off of medical leave.

You all can keep that bigoted company.

"the company’s first Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer."

When a company in America creates a snowflake position like a Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer position then this is evidence of a serious racial problem. Racist people against their own white race.

There are some good members on the county council, but John Cannon isn't one of them.

Perdue discriminates against LGBT individuals. They are afraid their chickens will catch the gay!

Jake Day was hired there with a gravy job as governmental relations. Why isn't he working their now?

That sounds like that racist job title that Mark Thompson has with the Wicomico County Board of Education. The job where Mark Thompson just goes around now and reminds principals and teachers that they can't punish black kids.

You know that "Crime is Down" mentality.
