While liberals praise Nike for making an anti-American/cop-hater the new face of their company, the reality of the situation is that the new “social justice” warriors have a long history of employing workers at “slave wages.”
So, the former NFL player supposedly standing up for the so-called “persecuted,” is now the face of a company that persecutes people- literally.
Sounds hypocritical and cruel enough to be very “liberal.”
Despite having a long, documented history of allegedly employing workers at slave wages, the multinational Nike corporation has become the face of the social justice wing of the political left with its newest ad featuring former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
As Breitbart News reported, the Nike corporation laid off 1,400 Americans just last year in the state of Oregon, cutting out workers who were older and likely sending their jobs overseas as the sports brand has done in the past.
In 2015, a screen printing factory in Clarence, New York used by Nike to make T-shirts that once employed nearly 170 Americans announced it was closing up shop and sending the jobs to low wage Honduras. The average minimum wage worker in Honduras earns less than $8,000 a year.
Nike’s history of alleged employment of slave labor in countries like Vietnam, China, Indonesia, and Honduras dates back so far that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) blasted the corporation’s business practices in 1997.
Even liberal LOON, Bernie Sanders spoke out about the company in the past but now that Nike has taken the liberal’s side they’ve suddenly become THE democrats business of the year! It’s funny how Democrat’s opinions change to suit their situation, isn’t it?
According to Fox News, Nike’s online sales have surged in the wake of it’s “Just Do It” campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick.
A report from Edison Trends said the company’s online sales grew 31 percent from Sunday through Tuesday. The surge was better than the 17 percent increase recorded last year during the same period, the report stated.
