A popular New York-based co-working company with more than 400 locations worldwide has decided that it’s no longer permissible for any of its more than 6,000 global employees to eat meat.
WeWork co-founder Miguel McKelvey announced the Orwellian policy change in a recent email, explaining that the firm’s upcoming “Summer Camp” event will kick off the new no-meat guidelines by featuring no meat, and plenty of soy, on its staff menu.
No longer will WeWork employees be allowed to expense meals that contain meat, nor will they be allowed to eat meat while on the clock. WeWork’s “Honesty Market,” a self-serve food and drink kiosk system found at many of its locations, will similarly be stripped of all meat products.
“New research indicates that avoiding meat is one of the biggest things an individual can do to reduce their [sic] personal environmental impact,” McKelvey declared in a company-wide memo, with the caveat, “even more than switching to a hybrid car.”
To fulfill their protein needs, WeWork staff will presumably be offered soy-based meat alternatives instead, ensuring that they’re also loaded up on phytoestrogens to keep them weak and effeminate. And let’s not forget all that Roundup (glyphosate) that’s sprayed on soy crops, the vast majority of which are genetically-modified (GMO).
WeWork is also engaging other politically correct measures to help “save the planet,” including restricting the use of plastics and redistributing leftover waste food to local charities.
Let the lawsuits fly: Some people require meat as part of their dietary needs
To the liberal ear, these changes represent a positive step towards better “sustainability” and decreased impact on the environment. But to others who recognize this propaganda for what it is, they’re a disturbing move in the direction of authoritarianism, where corporate fascists dictate what people eat.
In this case, not everyone wants to eat feminizing soy products – and some people actually need meat as part of their unique dietary needs. Whether for medical or religious reasons, eating meat is still a freedom afforded to Americans, and declaring that they can’t do so as a contingency of employment is discrimination.
WeWork says it’s already discussing options for allowing “medical or religious” exemptions for some of its meat-eating employees, on a case-by-case basis. But why should some employees be allowed such personal exemptions while others are not?
It’s a recipe for massive litigation that will hopefully set a precedent against this type of thing. Corporations do not have a legal or constitutional right to determine the dietary makeup of their employees, neither are they free to politicize food at their employees’ expense.
With its most recent valuation clocking in at a cool $20 billion, with anticipating fundraising expected to increase that amount to $35 billion, there’s a lot of cash just waiting to be plucked by meat-eating employees who might wish to sue WeWork for violating their right to eat the foods of their choice.
“We have made a commitment to be a meat-free organization,” an official WeWork announcement states in no uncertain terms about its food-Nazi stance. “This is a significant first step – and one that will have a meaningful impact.”
And don’t for a minute think that WeWork is alone in its corporate crusade to eliminate freedom of choice. American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Starbucks, Hilton, and Hyatt are implementing similar restrictions on plastic straws, which will no longer be offered to beverage drinkers. A growing number of locales across the country have banned, or are in the process of banning, plastic bags at grocery stores, citing “pollution” as the reason.
