Hundreds of employees at the online furniture company Wayfair walked off their jobs Wednesday to protest the company’s decision to supply furniture to migrant detention centers.

Around 550 employees sent a letter to Wayfair last week stating their demands, chief among them: the end of operations that furnish detention centers. In response, Wayfair said it would not cease doing business with detention centers, citing the importance of “intellectual diversity.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Wayfair workers descended on Boston’s Copley Square at 1:30 p.m. chanting, “This is what democracy looks like” and “Hey Hey Ho Ho, ICE contracts have got to go.”

In a letter to employees Wednesday, Wayfair said they respect “the passion of all our employees” and announced plans to donate “$100,000 to support the American Red Cross in their effort to help those in dire need of basic necessities at the border.”

CNN reported in a tweet that at Wednesday’s protest a “Wayfair employee told the crowd, ‘We want them to donate the funds to RAICES…We don’t want it donated to the Red Cross.'”

  1. What I find sad is that these beds are for CHILDREN and these selfish jerks, don’t seem to want them to have beds. Maybe in their mind it would be better they sleep on concrete floors.
    It is a shame that when they started making demands they were not handed their walking papers.
    Who in their right mind, except liberals wants to deny children a bed and mattress to sleep on.
