    Their letter makes it perfectly clear. Looks like it worked

    "Wayfair will donate $100,000 to the American Red Cross after an employee backlash over the sale of bedroom furniture for use in a migrant detention facility."

    Personally I don't think selling beds to these refugee camps constitute a gross violation of human rights, It's not like they were selling them more fencing units, handcuffs, or poison gas or anything. But I applaud WarFair for making the donation.

    It's a management decision.
    If they are open to being coerced and blackmailed into making a big donation that's their call.

    #11, Heart-String Breath: The crony part of capitalism always benefits whenever collective protest by the proletariat opposes the schizoid delirium of frontier capital, especially its extractive mechanism. WayFair's donation screws that mechanism and it would not have taken place without employee protest. The argument in post #6 states "fleeting emergencies," i.e., non-market capitalism aka alien panhandling.

    Meh.
    Wayfair should just hire some Mexicans for cheaper.
    Would be irony and karma all in a nice little package.

    Stockman (above excerpt) helps to decipher the WayFair affair: 'Fiscal cliffs as far as the eye can see are the deeply troubling outcome of the Great Deformation. They are the result of the capture of the state, especially its central bank, the Federal Reserve, by crony capitalist forces deeply inimical to free markets and democracy.'
    (Stockman, op cit p. 3)

    'Inimical: prejudicial in tendency, harmful, adverse; ~ to the interests of the consumer; ~ to the best interests of the company.

    crony: long-standing friends; to associate intimately.'
    (Webster's Third New International Dictionary)

    Capitalism's intimate relationship to the schizophrenic process was interrupted by the WayFair protest, whose object was to call out the delirious panhandling going on at the border. Apart from the panhandlers, who benefits, WayFair....the WayFair employees?

    Well, the employees of WayFair know they can now get the company to cave when they want them too. But, that's their call.

    If I was CEO I would shut er down for a month or two and then hire an entirely new workforce making sure to screen out all previous employees involved in the revolt . basically :fu:go find another job we found someone who's willing to work. Maybe even hire some illegal Immigrants at a lower wage and make a killing stock holders would be very pleased.:laughing0301:

    Where's the matching funds donated by the Wayfair employees? How much are they chipping in?
