Being educated and woke may result in unemployment

Any company hiring people who are more interested in perceived slights than the mission of your business does not deserve to be hired. Keep these people out so your business doesn’t rot from the inside.

The biggest liability that comes with hiring graduates from places like Haverford and Harvard is that they have been socialized to panic over pseudocrises. Talk of systemic racism and fixation on pronouns inculcate in young people an apocalyptic urgency, a mentality that often disrupts the workplace and encourages navel-gazing about “diversity,” “inclusion” and other ill-defined notions that are far removed from the main work of my organization, which is good writing, good editing and good arguments.

A few years ago a student at an Ivy League school told me, “The first things you learn your freshman year is never to say what you are thinking.” The institution he attended claims to train the world’s future leaders. From what that young man reports, the opposite is true. The school is training future self-censors, which means future followers.

AFLCIO President Richard Trumka on the jobs President Biden destroyed

You can see the pain on his face when searching for the words to answer the interviewer’s questions on job losses and Joe Biden. Even though Biden destroyed tens of thousands of union jobs with his executive orders Trumka still can’t bring himself to say anything truly negative. When asked how he feels about the ban on fracking on federal lands Trumka has to do some mental gymnastics by saying the job losses will be recovered by some as yet unnamed policy Biden will create that is supposed to end up with a net of job gains. You can almost see smoke coming out of his ears from the strain.
