Oh, boy! It’s 2020! George Floyd! All aboard the bandwagon! And so (you knew they would) hundreds of companies and corporations dove headlong into the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) boondoggle.
Fun’s over. In the year ending this past December, 33 percent of “DEI officers” and associated hangers-on have lost those jobs created for them in a stampede (https://abcnews.go.com/US/corporate-america-slashing-dei-workers-amid-backlash-diversity/story?id=100477952#:~:text=One%20in%20three%20DEI%20professionals,lower%20attrition%20rate%20of%2021%25.). True, the Biden economy is a mess: 21 percent of everybody who’s not a DEI officer lost their jobs, too.
In 2019-2022, DEI hires increased 169 percent.
Then companies discovered that these new employees produced nothing of value to the employer. Oh, they blame “the conservative backlash” for it, too; but the fact is, a DEI officer is good for nothing. The salary’s a sheer waste of money.
And so one out of three of ’em got sent packing in 2022.
It’s likely (we hope) to be more. Florida and Texas are acting to abolish “identity-based” hiring and promotion. Other states will follow.
If we don’t take back America from the Far Left Crazy who have hijacked it, posterity, if there is any, will call us cowards.
