Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner found this:
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.
One out of five! In other words, twenty percent of America’s jobs are off-limits to people who voted for Trump. Trump voters constitute 50% of the electorate but have access to only 80% of the jobs based on this survey, and if the left-right ratio of jobholders is proportionate to the population, it would mean that Trump voters have access to only 40% of the jobs out there. It’s political discrimination in spades, and they’re getting away with it.
This is precisely what drove voters to elect President Trump in 2016. It’s why they surprised pollsters as a “silent majority,” declining to put Trump bumper stickers on their cars out of knowing that leftist intolerance is out there and not wanting to run into it. Now this news may propel them to elect him again in 2020 because news is out that the intolerance is not going away and now even the routes to opportunity and paths to success, such as in hiring, are involved. Didn’t get a job? Maybe it’s because you voted for Trump. The perpetrators now are so comfortable turning people down over politics that they’re admitting to doing it to pollsters. It’s a sign that cancel-culture among the establishment’s elites is out of control and, in effect, is putting America well on the road to a China-style social credit system, with no central government necessarily ordering them. read more
