You know if it was MAGA hats and Trump gear, Liberals would be complaining that they are allowed to wear it… Whole Food is being attacked here. Their company policy is fair and doesn’t allow MAGA or BLM or any slogans that could affect their brand. But Liberals are not having it and are demanding employees be allowed to advertise their narratives.
“Whole Foods is defending itself amid an effort from National Labor Relations Board prosecutors to force the Amazon-owned grocery chain to allow its employees to wear “Black Lives Matter” attire while they are at work, despite the company’s longstanding policy forbidding all slogans in its dress code.
NLRB prosecutors accused Whole Foods last month of violating U.S. labor law by allegedly punishing workers who wore BLM masks in 2020. The prosecutors are pursuing labor charges on the basis that workers have the right under federal labor laws to engage in collective action related to workplace issues.
Whole Foods fired back, arguing that BLM has nothing to do with collective action in the workplace, and that NLRB General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo is actually trying to violate the retailer’s own constitutional rights under the First Amendment by trying to “compel employer speech.”
“The Amazon-owned grocery chain denied any wrongdoing in response to a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) complaint that it had infringed on federal law by enforcing a workplace dress code barring the apparel.
In the Dec. 17 legal filing, Whole Foods accused NLRB general counsel Jennifer Abruzzo of an effort to “compel” speech in violation of the First Amendment.
The grocery chain also accused Abruzzo of “unlawfully infringing upon and/or diluting WFM’s protected trademarks” through her legal action by forcing Whole Foods to allow “political message in conjunction with” its uniforms, Bloomberg reported.
In the filing, Whole Foods argued that the protections offered by the National Labor Relations Act do not extend to “political and/or social justice speech.”

Whole Foods appears to be pretty unbiased here and really if it gets forced to comply they should start pushing All Lives Matter gear just to stick it to them.
