A class action lawsuit filed against Nike Inc. late Thursday gives the fullest picture yet of the toxic workplace behavior...
.... class action status, alleges "women's careers (at Nike) are blunted because they are marginalized and passed over for promotions....
....Complaints about Nike's culture were first reported in March by the Wall Street Journal after a group of female executives complained to CEO Mark Parker. The New York Times and The Oregonian subsequently reported on complaints about Nike's culture...
.... a male Nike executive sent inappropriate sexual messages and nude photographs of himself to one of the plaintiffs, Sara Johnston, after a boozy Nike party in December 2015...
...same male executive "pushed a female co-worker against a wall and reached his hand up her skirt" at the same December 2015 party.
.....plaintiff Kelly Cahill, who also filed an earlier sexual discrimination complaint again Nike with the state, claims a former Nike executive referred to women as "dykes" on several occasions and regularly berated female employees.
Cahill claims she complained to human resources four times, but her complaints did not result in "meaningful" action.
I guess Nike loves to harass women. Me Too movement, where are you?
Nike is a missle used in the 50s to defend our cities from soviet communist bombers.
Only Nike I know. This old fart wears Rockport Walkers
"C'mon, baby! Just do it. Even if it means sacrificing everything," he said.
Whom does this apply to, “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything”.
Nike is sacrificing everything to preserve an archaic mindset. Goodbye to cheap child labor in some Asian country, and distribution of overpriced sports equipment goods in this country.
Demand for these goods is a highly fungible commercial enterprise. It can be satisfied from any number of other sources.
Among the many things I hope to never see is Colin Kapernick in the raw.
Seems to me that the contempt top Nike executives have for women would probably make Colin feel right at home.
So is the whole kapernic thing all about readjusting their customer base to one who won’t care about something like this?
No, Colin dances to the tune his woman plays. He'd probably be playing football somewhere if she hadn't gotten him all "woke".
so what’s his name?
One thing you might have missed...his new squeeze is a moslem.And having done some traveling in the Middle East I've see,up close,how obedient,how submissive,moslem women are to their husbands,and fathers,and uncles,and brothers,and sons,and grandsons.
I'd bet everything I own that his squeeze is accustomed to as much abuse and domination by men than is any other moslem woman.
Well Hello Nike....welcome to Me Too....and you double down on sleaze by hiring a USA hating underprivileged semiblack millionaire...
THIS is why the ad: To distract from the lawsuit against Nike executives for sexual assault against their female employees.
Now we see why Nike chose to publicize the cop hater Colin. They wanted to rally support before news of this lawsuit got a lot of attention.
Well said, SoFloFreeper.
BTW, Trump's kicking CK's and Nike's asses, which also happens to be where their heads are.
