'Did you vote for Trump? Please resign': Boss tells employees
Los angeles : Did you vote for Donald Trump the elections? If yes, you are not welcomed at Grubhub, the online food delivery service.
In an email sent to the company, the CEO suggested employees, who agree with President-elect Donald Trump’s behaviors and his campaign rhetoric, to resign.
Matt Maloney, Co-Founder of Grubhub sent the email Wednesday afternoon with the subject line, “So…that happened…what’s next?”
His mail read:
“If you do not agree with this statement then please reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here. We do not tolerate hateful attitudes on our team. 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. 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. 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, who is a Hillary Clinton supporter made it clear in the email statement that he is personally stunned and deeply concerned with the results of Tuesday’s election.
When asked for comments, Maloney maintained his stand and said many of his employees appreciated his decision. “I am not embarrassed by it,” he said.
He also made it clear that he’s particularly concerned Trump’s victory will empower others in his workplace to act out against marginalized groups.
Adding to his remarks, he said, “If it were up to me, Trump would have been fired a long time ago. Had he worked here, many of his comments would have resulted in his immediate termination.”
He ended his letter imploring his employees to “stay strong."
The letter has intensified remarks from both sides of population- one which supports Hillary Clinton and other which roots for Donald Trump.
