If you voted for Donald Trump, you may not feel welcomed at Grubhub.
The CEO of Grubhub, an online food delivery service, sent a company wide email Wednesday suggesting employees who agree with President-elect Donald Trump’s behaviors and his campaign rhetoric should resign.
“If you do not agree with this statement then please reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here,” wrote Matt Maloney, Co-Founder of Grubhub. “We do not tolerate hateful attitudes on our team.”
Maloney, a Hillary Clinton supporter, sent the email Wednesday afternoon with the subject line, “So…that happened…what’s next?” He made it clear in the email statement that he is personally stunned and deeply concerned with the results of Tuesday’s election.
“I absolutely reject the nationalist, anti-immigrant and hateful politics of Donald Trump and will work to shield our community from this movement as best as I can,” Maloney wrote about Trump’s supporters.
“I want to reaffirm to anyone on our team that is scared or feels personally exposed, that I and everyone else here at Grubhub will fight for your dignity and your right to make a better life for yourself and your family here in the United States.”
The CEO made it clear he’s particularly concerned Trump’s victory will empower others in his workplace to act out against marginalized groups.
“While demeaning, insulting, and ridiculing minorities, immigrants, and the physically/mentally disabled worked for Mr. Trump, I want to be clear that this behavior — and these views — have no place at Grubhub,” Maloney explained.
Adding, if it were up to him, Trump would have been fired a long time ago.
“Had he worked here, many of his comments would have resulted in his immediate termination.”
Maloney tells Fox News that “almost 20 percent” of his employees have personally thanked him for the note. “I am not embarrassed by it,” he said.
Real democratic. Clearly, this boss has no concept of freedom of speech, freedom of association and only a scant regard for the US Constitution.
I guess he will find out real fast how successful he has been once Trump supporters decided to forego buying from his company.
I wish Grubhub was here so I could stop using them.
