Job Wars

I don’t support the BDS but this is utterly ridiculous:

A children’s speech pathologist who has worked for the last nine years with developmentally disabled, autistic, and speech-impaired elementary school students in Austin, Texas, has been told that she can no longer work with the public school district, after she refused to sign an oath vowing that she “does not” and “will not” engage in a boycott of Israel or “otherwise tak[e] any action that is intended to inflict economic harm” on that foreign nation.

People who squeeze others out of jobs for not supporting their dogmatic beliefs have somehow deluded themselves into thinking that the same method won’t be applied to them to squeeze them out of theirs. They believe that having “the correct ideology” will keep them safe. But it’s not about ideology at all. These are job wars. This is not about Israel, or pronouns, or anything other than creating a fluid workplace for white-collar jobs.

One thought on “Job Wars”

  1. I feel saddened, angry and ashamed when I see such news, precisely because I do care about Israel. It is the best anti-Israeli propaganda one could wish for.

    Also, it is interesting that in our era of consumerism, the proles are forced to sign off the freedom of consumer choices – one of the central attractions of neoliberalism – or pay the price.

    P.S. I sent you an email.
