Anyone else tired of all the "woke" internal emails and posts with your employer, this group's month and that group's month, wellness contests, mindfulness propaganda, etc.?
No one ever sent me such an email. Might be my reputation; reply to all is very tempting, specially in the late hours.

60 years ago, we was not woke. And the more our currency slides, the more woke we became.

The woke west needs fresh blood; immigrants, refugees, anything - or the currency collapses. We need an expanding population, and the average western doesn't produce enough. Without an expanding population, the state cannot borrow money at the same rate. So, to be blunt; we importing people because we don't make enough of them, to keep the borrowing going. Is that "woke" enough? Big Grin | :-D

"Equal rights", yes; but not mandatory minimal hires of a color or gender; that's devaluing for the sake of virtue. A virtue that is as valueable as being a virgin. Makes nice headlines, nothing more.

Never discussed that at work either; that's private, not business.

"As friends"?

Coworkers aren't. They competition according to management.

Once, we worked as a team toward a common goal, for a common interest. Now we work for a manager that declares all employees to be competing.

Those mails are PR. There's no value in them in productive terms, only in how the company is perceived.
