Nike has not had a rough couple days since it decided to use race baiter Collin Kaepernick in their new ads. Now, it is being brought to our attention the reality of this deal and how hypocritical Nike and Kaepernick really is.
For a person to say they stand against “oppression” Kaepernick sure seems to be ok with Nike’s practices.
Here is more from Breitbart:
The multinational Nike corporation has a long history of outsourcing jobs, manufacturing, and production to the lowest wage foreign countries around the world, including China, Vietnam, and Honduras.
Last year, alone, Nike laid off about 1,400 American workers in its headquarters town of Beaverton, Oregon.
Phil Gold, who had worked for Nike for 15 years, told Oregon Live at the time of the layoffs that the corporation had no regard for the job that workers were doing and that the layoffs were all about executives cutting costs.
“They definitely targeted tenured, experienced employees as a money-saving thing with very little regard for how the work is going to get done. It wasn’t about performance,” Gold said.
Multinational corporations, like Nike, often lay off older employees to send their jobs — especially those in IT jobs as Gold was — overseas to low wage countries like India and Thailand to cut costs and drive up profit margins. Meanwhile, American workers are left behind trying to find work in industries that have been largely outsourced thanks to free trade and tiny trade barriers.
