Workers sue Whole Foods over alleged Black Lives Matter mask ban

More than a dozen workers sued Whole Foods claiming that the grocery giant owned by Amazon punished 40 employees for wearing ’Black Lives Matter’ face masks on the job at locations around the country. Whole Foods stated that ’no Team Members have been terminated for wearing Black Lives Matter face masks or apparel’.

For the same reason that if you wear a terrorist garb on the job. BLM in words doesn't mean what the title says. It's a hijacked movement, with Marxists inside the tojan gift.

I don't understand how these people can't leave politics and religion out of the workplace, do what you're paid to do on company time, go riot on your own's really simple...

Make it fair if people want to wear BLM masks then the company should allow or provide trump 2020 masks as well.

This large chunk of the population says BLM is good. this large chunk of the population says BLM is bad. The rest of the population thinks both sides are extremist morons. Of course they are going to ban politically heated masks. They likely would have done the same about MAGA masks, as either one would piss off or annoy most people. The company has a right to crack down on that.

Each company has the ability to impose dress codes regardless of political or non political meanings. You don't like this work somewhere else.

Company that wants to (and rightly so) maximise profits. The best way it sees to do this (and it is correct) is to stay out of affairs that have no way shape or form anything to do with maximising those profits. As such expects employees (representatives of the company) to also while they work keep affairs unrelated to maximizing profits in their private lives not their work lives therefore does not want employees to wear items that could potentially alienate consumers.

Just fire them and hire illegals who will not complain and do great work

What better way to say, "fire me," than to show up for work saying capitalism is evil? I've known Marxists, they don't have a problem with theft, I'd imagine they think work is evil too.

Does Whole Foods allow WLM masks? If not, they are being consistent.
