Democratic Senator Demands Answers after Kellogg’s announces Mass Layoffs

on

Kellogg’s choice to align with the Democratic Party has resulted in massive closures throughout the country.

Recently Pennsylvania Senator Robert P. Casey jr. (D-PA) demanded answers from the company as to why they would be laying off 500 employees in his state. Well the answer might be hard for him to hear because the reality of the situation is political.

Back in November Kellogg’s decided that it would no longer advertise with Breitbart News because as a company the don’t agree with the values of the Republican Party. Therefore the #DumpKellogg’s petition was formed and apparently has been successful in shutting down the company.

Via Breitbart:

Sen. Casey has sent a letter to Paul Norman, president of Kellogg’s North America division, asking for the company to continue its “long-standing commitment to the Pennsylvania workforce,” The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

Pennsylvania is far from the only state finding large numbers of Kellogg employees relegated to the unemployment list.

Among other announcements, 250 were notified of their lost jobs in Ohio and another 175 were laid off in Tennessee. Also, almost 500 were fired in North Carolina, nearly 300 were fired in facilities in New York, and another 219 lost their jobs in Minnesota.

The cereal giant’s troubles coincided with the company’s recent decision to pull its advertising from Breitbart News. As it pulled advertising from the popular news site last November, company spokesperson Kris Charles said Breitbart News and its 45 million readers “aren’t aligned with” the cereal maker’s “values as a company.”

The move prompted Breitbart News to launch its #DumpKelloggs petition, which has been signed by more than 431,000 people.

Advertising should have nothing to do with politics, a lesson Kellogg’s decided to learn the hard way.
