Hey these Wayfair execs are totally clueless. They’re going to damage their whole company just for the sake of some furniture sales to concentration camps.

Greed blinds.
Especially in conservatives

On further thought - I guess sociopathy blinds too

They’re probably afraid their market share among Trumpy goosesteppers would be damaged. They’re nuts.

FYI.

Anybody here think they’ll ever purchase anything from Wayfair ever?

Once trust is broken, it’s not easily repaired. However, there is a way for Wayfair to reduce the damage, and that is to donate the entire order for the furniture. Assuming they care for the children more than their profits.

On the other hand, that would encourage ICE to invite donations from companies so that they avoid controversy while helping their PR ratings. But that won’t stop ICE from locking up children.

While the employees actions are well meaning. Wayfair sells thousands of products manufactured by children from countries with no minimum wage laws and little to no workers safety protections, while children in detention is politically relevant, they have supported the enslavement and polluting of children every other day without a gripe…If they really cared about children they wouldn’t be working there to begin with.

I’m GLAD they are there so we are now aware of what this greedy company is part of.
