Companies like Disney and Nike have become more woke and frequently make the news for their radical political positions. Employees of these companies frequently push the larger business to move even further left, and take even more woke positions.

But what happens if someone is an employee of a woke company and isn’t woke themselves?

Terry Pell, president of the Center for Individual Rights, says the consequences can be dire.

“HR departments have become increasingly woke, and corporate leaders are afraid of Twitter mobs attacking and destroying the reputation of the company,” explains Pell.

“The employers now are highly sensitive to outside criticism and outside activists know this,” he adds. “So they prey on these companies and they basically threaten to expose them for being racist if they don’t go along with whatever the activists want.”

Pell joins the show to discuss how the woke took over business, and how we can counter them.

    One issue of course— what if one’s “woke” employer is a university? I have taught at my university since 1987; last year DEI training was required and I requested a religious exemption. I received a rather snarky response from the faculty chair of the committee and responded with a thoughtful and thorough explanation of my faith approach. I received no response, but have since been told that the chair shared aspects of my response and has spread the story that I am of course a racist. I will find out in the fall if I am being required to participate in DEI training, but I have already been tarred. 

    i am in the fortunate position that I am nearing retirement but I can not afford to retire for a few more years. That may not matter.
