Goodyear scandal gets worse after leaked audio from a training meeting is released
Newly released audio purported to be from a recent training meeting at Goodyear Tire and Rubber company appears to corroborate the alleged training slide that went viral earlier this week.
The company came under fire this week for its recent “zero-tolerance” policy that banned overt support for police officers or MAGA hats, but expressed approval for social justice measures such as Black Lives Matter.
What are the new details?
In the newly released audio posted by WIBW-TV in Topeka, Kansas, an unidentified instructor can be heard telling employees that they are permitted to express their views on social justice or inequity matters on attire — but only if it’s the “right” kind of social justice and inequity, such a supporting Black Lives Matter or LGBTQ issues.
“Some people may wish to express their views on social justice or inequity or equity issues such as black lives matter or LGBTQ pride on their face coverings, shirts or wristbands,” the instructor can be heard telling employees. “That will be deemed approved because it applies with a zero-tolerance stance.”
“However,” the trainer can be heard adding, “if any associate wears all, blue, white lives matter shirts or face coverings, that will be not appropriate.”
