Tug-of-War Between LGBTQ+ Allies and Opponents in Corporate America

For the past thirty years, the LGBTQ+ community in the USA has significantly influenced Corporate America, pushing companies to adopt progressive policies beyond mere benefits and non-discrimination. This economic force has particularly impacted Wall Street, leading to positive change—until the era of Trumpism and "anti-woke" activism. In this episode of Richie & John, the hosts explore a recent misstep by John Deere, a major agricultural hardware brand, and celebrate the bravery of a Milwaukee sandwich shop worker for standing up to religious bigotry. As backlash intensifies, is it time for the LGBTQ+ community to name and shame bad actors and fight back? Tune in for an important discussion on the need for resistance and solidarity.
