One-Third of Basecamp Employees Quit After Founders Ask Them To Focus On Work, Not Wokeness, At Work

About one-third of employees at software company Basecamp quit days after bosses told them to keep ideology out of the workplace and focus on the company’s actual business.

“We make project management, team communication, and email software,” CEO Jason Fried wrote April 26. We don’t have to solve deep social problems, chime in publicly whenever the world requests our opinion on the major issues of the day, or get behind one movement or another with time or treasure. These are all important topics, but they’re not our topics at work.”

Tech journalist Casey Newton said about one-third of the company’s roughly 60 employees took buyouts shortly after, with one fuming: “Basically the company has said, ‘well, your opinions don’t really matter — unless it’s directly related to business…’ A lot of people are gonna have a tough time living with that.”

Newton reported at Platformer that woke tensions boiled over after, in December, a new hire “volunteered to help the company work on diversity issues.”

I hope not, but losing 1/3 of your staff has got to be tough on management. Hopefully upper management views the situation as the damage was done when they allowed wokeness, and they needed to get rid of it at any cost.

This might be a good time to apply to work there - they're probably trying to hire like mad, so may offer sweeter salaries. But real gem is a remaining workforce with low levels of wokeness.

Doughy fuckface who enjoys a top 1% of the world lifestyle, talking about he don't want things to be easy.

I suspect he's never missed a meal in his life.

Not at all! These people don't do jack shit anyways and only add overhead and cost by virtue signaling the shit out of everything and fucking shit up with actually smart workers and good work horses cause they ain't woke enough. In fact they may be a major liability and ticking time bombs.

I can see this becoming a trend. And if you left over these issues, you probably will have blackballed yourself with likeminded companies.

Downside: after this sort of thing becomes common, it will stop working so well as the wokey crowd realizes that nobody actually wants their whiny asses.

It is, actually, a pretty common misconception. Thoroughly debunked, of course.

I say this generation of oversensitive pumpered 20-30 year old babies is lost. I wouldnt waste my energy convincing them. Let life teach them lesson of real world. Concentrate on next coming wave of young people and educate them better. My two teenage kids laugh at all those woky news.

Dude, Millies born around 1990 to professional parents are the absolute worst. Full of excuses, full of self-righteousness, not very competent, but think they are the GOATs.

Where do these retards come with their absurdity? I don’t know any other professional industry that has this level of idiocy.

Between Mozilla getting all woke on their twitter and the superiority of Brave, I officially converted after 20 years of firefox.

I have a hard time switching to Brave because of the Mousescroll, I'm 20/80 Brave (FOR P0RN), but I need to make the damn switch.

This is great news. Replace the 1/3 who aren’t there for the right reasons and watch productivity skyrocket

Brave gives me issues with the middle mouse button scroll, which I use all the time.
