what fucking "tightrope"? The choice is clear: freedom or slavery. #fuckallthingswoke

Carhartt reasoning is just so flimsy.

they claim the vast majority of their workforce is vaccinated.

if that was true, whats the point of the mandate?

they claim they are doing it to keep their workforce safe,

but if their workforce is already mostly vaccinated, WHO exactly are they trying to "protect", and WHAT exactly are they trying to protect them from

ItsAFreeCountry 11 points ago +11 / -0

The theory is that they are protecting the unvaxxed, right? Because the vaxxed “won’t get hospitalized, will have mild symptoms”, so they must be protecting the people who are choosing to not get the jab. It’s insulting. It’s like saying, “obviously you’re too stupid to think for yourself, so we’re going to think for you”. But that’s theory. In reality, they are trying to protect themselves because they know the vax doesn’t work. They are also trying to cater to the woke mobs. If they had any business sense, they would just say “we support the vax, but more importantly we respect people’s rights to make healthcare decisions for themselves.” They’d get a hell of a lot more respect from everybody if they stood up for their employees rather than throwing their employees under the bus. Got to be one of the most bone-headed business decisions of all time, and yet the hits just keep on coming. Who’s making these decisions? Surely not captains of industry. Whoever is driving corporate wokeness at the expense of profits has no future in business. Business owners want managers who will do their job/make profits. If I’m a business owner and a manager I hire pulls this shit, they’ll be eating out of a trash can.

Ok, clearly I’m behind the times and the story of this company must have dropped on a day I didn’t log on to GAW b/c I’ve never heard of this clothing line, let alone the uproar about their mandate. And obviously, I’m not missing much if they’re mandating the shot like all the other crap corporations. 🙄

They think they can float on acrylic hats for the fashionistas. It's hilarious. They pissed off every blue collar patriot and thats the bread and butter. It's pretty much a uniform in Michigan.

It’s been my uniform for years now. Sad! Lucky for me, they’re long lasting so I don’t have to buy clothes for a while haha, but when I do, it probably won’t be Carhartt

Chad_Prime 3 points ago +3 / -0

I too have some of their gear and I won't toss any of it, because I paid good money for my stuff.

Instead, I'll do what someone else suggested and remove all of the Carhartt logos. That makes a strong statement for those of us who still need to wear our jackets.

3
CirclebackGinger 3 points ago +3 / -0

I guess since they’ve mandated the shot I don’t need to worry about familiarizing myself with their merchandise b/c I certainly won’t be supporting them. One less thing for me to spend money on. 🤷🏼‍♀️😂

2
Mungfatchee 2 points ago +2 / -0

Clearly. I laughed so hard when I read that they would mandate- they have no clue who their customers are. I’m glad it did not take long for Carhartt to feel the pain. Many (maybe even most) customers will be gone forever.

Unassailable 5 points ago +5 / -0

Up until they messed this up, Carhartt was the brand of professional workers' outdoorware almost all US chain stores carried.

They didn't faggot up their stuff, it was almost always in some kind of tan, or other outdoorsy color, adequate quality.

The other day when the Supreme Scrotums said no mandates for private employers, they hustled over to leg hump that ''we're gonna mandatory vax anyway becuase yaw dum, yaw ain't safe. We gotta be safe.''

So we're gonna break their fucking business in half, and throw it in the chipper

with the rest of the slavers and child molesters.

Wearing danners now. I tried on a pair in 2008 and haven't warn any other boot since. And they last me on average about 4 years. And that's wearing them daily. Best boots ever! No better feeling than your foot wrapped in a cloud while kicking life's ass lol

I bought nothing but 511 pants for 10 years then their customer service sucked so badly the one time I had to contact them that I've been boycotting them for about 3 years now. I liked their stuff, but it didn't last that long for how much they charge.

Update: Carthartt went woke and plowed ahead compulsory experimental mRNA injections for their 3,000 US based employees. The Carhartt internal email was dated Jan 2022. I will not purchase another Carhartt item. Ever. Go woke, go broke. Taking mine to Goodwill tomorrow.

I am all FOR businesses making their own decisions and NOT forced into making decisions by the government. Their decision was to mandate it for their employees. They ARE allowing religious and medical exceptions though which are pretty easy to get so anybody who thinks their jobs are at stake just need to submit one. I don’t agree with mandates but Carhartt is making their OWN decision and I respect that. They now will have to live with the consequences of their actions. My 2 cents.✝️🇺🇸🗽

34
Lapstrake 34 points ago +34 / -0

The blowback isn't about respecting their decision.

It is about people's lives being torn asunder for no good reason.

What if you aren't religious and don't have a medical exemption? Is that some kind of solution, that employees should be forced to lie?

The vaccines are unsafe and completely ineffective. The mandate is utter bullshit, and unless they change their mind, many families are going to be thrown into a difficult position for no rational reason.

Carhartt can do this if they want. It is their choice. It is also my choice to never buy any more Carhartt clothing again. And I probably have at least $1000 of the product.

-5
Jagerman2 -5 points ago +1 / -6

Yes that’s the beauty of America. We ALL have the right to make choices…even bad ones. I hate to see such a well respected company make in my opinion a bad choice. The free will of companies is what helps make America strong. Some will survive, some will not. They will suffer the consequences of their decisions. I hate to see a good company go down with the decisions of a few board members….

7
ItsAFreeCountry 7 points ago +7 / -0

Not likely a board decision. Management decision. Boards don’t operate the companies; they hire and fire management based on how they operate the company, it’s called governance. And it’s a bad career decision to put wokeness ahead of profits. Companies should be apolitical if at all possible and risk being hated by all, instead of deliberately distancing itself from half of its customers. You say they’re exercising free will, and you applaud their ability to be able to do so. I’m not saying that’s wrong, I’m just saying managing out of fear is like a coach playing “not to lose”, instead of “to win”. It’s not a sound business decision and the board should care because these actions can do permanent harm to a company’s reputation and profitability, maybe even threaten it’s very survival. It’s also a bad business decision because history shows that companies that respect their employees are more productive than companies who treat their employees like children.

spez: if the BOD is woke, and the managers are just trying to keep their jobs, I can’t blame them, but those boards need to decide what the purpose of the organization is. If it’s profits, then coercing management to operate the company from a woke perspective is a dereliction of board duty, for which they should be removed from the board and may risk financial liability.

1
Jagerman2 1 point ago +2 / -1

Totally agree they made a bad decision. But in America we have a right to make bad decisions too. That’s all I’m saying. It’s too bad they did put wokeness and politics ahead of their base and employees. The company will suffer. Peace. ✝️🇺🇸🗽

VaccinesCauseSIDS 19 points ago +19 / -0

I'm having a hard time accepting the frame of the debate,

that being, that the employee even has to "opt-out" of any elective medical procedure.

and that the employer, at their sole discretion, is able to choose who is allowed "exemptions" and who is not.

4
ItsAFreeCountry 4 points ago +4 / -0

Well said. ‘Religious exemption”. I need some corporate hack to decide if the First Amendment applies to me or not? I don’t think so.

4
bigsix 4 points ago +4 / -0

who is allowed "exemptions" and who is not.

Religious exemptions are the right of any citizen under the 1964 Civil Rights Act. You don't ask for an exemption, you notify the company you a invoking your right. Companies not respecting this may be grounds for suit.

not a lawyer, not legal advice.

5
jsosr29n39 5 points ago +5 / -0

I would love to see companies sued over this. Too many companies right now are "reviewing and assessing" religious exemptions, as if they have any right to deny this right. Most people don't have the time and money to hire a lawyer and fight this, so they either move on to a different job or cave and get the jab.

Speaking personally, I was interviewing and applying for jobs the second I got a notice that my ex-employer was going to institute a jab mandate. I didn't have time to play their games only to be denied and lose an income with a family to support.

Nobody has a right to work for Carhartt.

Carhartt has a right to not let you work there if they feel you are putting their other employees in danger. In fact, being in Michigan they can fire you for whatever reason they want.

See how that works.

Correct. I am not a mandate nor an exemption “fan”. The company has a right to make “bad” decisions too. It’s America. Like I said earlier they will suffer their consequences OF the bad decisions. Now, the employees have a decision to make… It’s America. You have the choice. I’m sorry but you need to grow up and understand that freedom of choice includes ‘not making’ the right choice. ✝️🇺🇸🗽 God, Country, Liberty In case you couldn’t understand that….

ShakeAndBake1776 7 points ago +7 / -0

I submitted a religious exemption over the summer. It got denied and I lost my job in September. I still haven’t found work in my area. So if a company has the power over you to put something in your body and they are the ones to decide what is redeeming for an exemption, how do you see that as respectable?

-1
Jagerman2 -1 points ago +1 / -2

Being able/allowed to MAKE a decision, be it good OR bad s the American way. Like it or not. You can choose to still work for them OR NOT, you can man-up and quit blaming others for your troubles, YOU are in control NOT them. Don’t let them GET to you . Show them you don’t need them and be better than them. Respect that we ALL have a right to choices/ decisions MOT the actual decision. Theirs was not a wise one. I totally agree.

3
ShakeAndBake1776 3 points ago +3 / -0

So if by your definition the American way is the right to choose, how are these companies living the American way by denying the employers the right to choose to get the jab or not? This isn’t being disgruntled about your hours or the pay and choosing to leave. This is employers forcing an experimental injection that has the potential to kill people. This goes against the Nuremberg code and is illegal, but since the government and courts are corrupt, it all stands. I “maned-up” by not getting the vax and now I’m fighting them legally. I chose the harder path for a better tomorrow. What you are saying that it’s ok to bend over or leave if you don’t like it. But guess what, after continuously leaving there will come a point where there is no where else to run. I guess that’s where we disagree. Something that is this grotesque has no place in a free country IMO.

Also, you are forgetting that for a lot of people contracts are involved with employment. Since I was fired before the end of my contract, they are coming after me for thousands of dollars to pay them back for schooling. So my “options” is to get forced to get the jab, quit and have to pay them back thousands of dollars, or get fired and they try to fight me legally for thousands of dollars. It’s been a fun 4 months.

Jagerman2 2 points ago +2 / -0

Sorry to hear about your struggles. It’s definitely not right with what they decided to do. I’m in total agreement with you there, it’s wrong for sure. The only thing I’m saying is that they have a right to make BAD DECISIONS as well as good ones. They pissed a lot of people off and I’m one of them. They will pay for it dearly. Companies who make bad decisions will die. Peace to you and you family.
