Liberals claim to be opposed to all forms of hatred and discrimination.
But apparently, that doesn’t apply to Trump supporters. A new report suggests that there are managers who won’t hire Trump supporters.
The Washington Examiner has the story:
Workplace bias: 1-in-5 managers won’t hire pro-Trump workers
American workers who like President Trump face sweeping bias against them, with some managers refusing to hire his supporters and those already employed facing discrimination and mockery, according to a new study.
In a survey of hiring managers and workers shared with Secrets, the marketing firm Airtasker found that left-leaning firms are especially anti-Trump, with 20% vowing to reject a job candidate who backs the president.
And those who support Trump and who are already in the workplace face substantial mockery, including name-calling. The survey listed the responses to several examples of what pro-Trump workers face:
– 28%, joking about them.
– 23%, overly critical of them.
– 21%, being dismissive of them.
– 11% facing name calling.
The survey found that even more than Trump, a job candidate’s view on race and gender politics will help, or hurt, their chances of getting a job.
What the left doesn’t seem to realize is that there are Trump supporters everywhere. Even in true-blue Seattle.
From the Seattle Times:
In blue Seattle, Trump supporters are starting to come out of hiding
When word got out during the last presidential election that Seattle developer Martin Selig would be supporting Donald Trump, the blowback from our liberal town, he said, was “stunning.”
“Do you know what it’s like being a Jewish Republican in Seattle?” Selig told The Seattle Times. “The repercussions of what you hear from people is stunning.”
In reaction, Selig, a billionaire, retreated from any affiliation with Trump in 2016 and said he wouldn’t even vote for him. It had become problematic just getting along in the city while wearing a MAGA hat.
But that was then. This spring, Selig went all-in for Trump, maxing out to the president’s campaign with a donation of $5,600.
What’s interesting isn’t so much that this one local rich guy decided to stop worrying and go full Trump. It’s that he’s hardly alone.
The latest federal-election reports show that Trump is doing surprisingly well getting backers in this bluest of blue places. With nearly 15 months to go before the 2020 election, he already has drawn more donations from Seattle addresses than he did during the entire 2016 campaign.
The left lives in a bubble. They think every one hates Trump as much as they do.
They’re so wrong.
