Facebook gives employees time off to join May 1 anti-Trump immigration protest

April 19, 2017

Facebook will not penalize employees who choose to take time off on May 1 to attend a protest against President Donald Trump’s immigration policies. The social media giant has also said it will investigate any contractors on its Menlo Park campus near the Bay area in California who do not allow their employees to attend the protest as well.

“At Facebook, we’re committed to fostering an inclusive workplace where employees feel comfortable expressing their opinions and speaking up,” a spokesman wrote to Bloomberg in an emailed statement. “We support our people in recognizing International Workers’ Day and other efforts to raise awareness for safe and equitable employment conditions.”

Facebook notified its employees of this policy change on an internal forum on April 14, saying that workers did not have to notify the company ahead of time in order to take time off to attend the protest. It has also threatened to “re-evaluate ties” to any vendor that breaks the law in disallowing their employees to leave work to protest.

California Labor Code 1102 prohibits companies for firing or punishing an employee for participating in a politically driven protest. However it does not protect employees from being terminated or punished for missing work to attend these protests.

    May 1st is a worldwide communist celebration. Organized labor’s joining the red parade is a sad testament of what unions have become.

    • Rodney Steward

      Unions have always had a communist act about them!

  • Thomas Goss

    Facebook is owned and run by a ASSHOLE. And it’s bullshit that they allow people to express their opinions. I get kicked off Facebook all the time because they don’t agree with what I have to say.

  • Smitty D

    Feed the monkeys and watch them shit!

  • Pete Bundy

    I am so glad I got rid of my FB account.

  • maxx

    What else would we expect from a company owned by a communist masquerading as an American businessman? I suspect Microsoft, Amazon, Ebay and Starbucks will join the list shortly. Good reason not to spend a single cent at any one of these liberal run orgs.

    I don’t have a facebook account because of zuckerberg’s policies and global agenda. To those of you who still have your accounts, before you quit them, send the asshole a message.

    So Facebook approves of people protesting against the laws of the United States.
    All that is happening now…as almost everyone reading this knows…is that Trump and the current administration are enforcing the laws which Obama failed to enforce.
    Illegals complain.

  • Irked

    Liberals with money are more dangerous than monkeys with automatic weapons. Period.

    I’m proud to say I’ve never had a Facebook account. And now with Facebook “live” Mark Zuckerberg has given criminals access to broadcasting real time murders and rapes. It would take a guy like that to allow and encourage his employees to attend an anti-Trump event. Folks…it’s the inmates running the asylum these days….

    • George Bernard Vieto

      Put on an image of a nude woman taking a shower and I get hate mail from that group threatening to close my account for good. I gave them the goodbye signal recently and am proud of it.

    • Retired

      You can put ol Zucker in the same category as Soros , remember he would not help with the I Phone .

  • Rock

    Already done… Yanked mine about 2010 ! Pro Trump people, CLOSE YOUR FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS !

    • maxx

      I don’t have one but explain how to do it so others an follow your lead.

  • Stephen Howe

    May 1st…isn’t this MAY DAY…Commie holiday?!

    • Retired

      It is a European holiday , don’t know about Russia partaking . Maybe after the 90s .

    • PatriotGal

      Yes, it was always considered a communist day. But, hey, our schools don’t teach history anymore. They teach social ideology that suits them at the moment.

  • Wingedgodd3ss

    If you are conservative please really consider closing your Facebook account. If they were not so large they would not wield as much power. I quit in 2013 and have not regretted it yet.
