Billionaire Liberal CEO Threatening To Pull His Company From Every Conservative States….
I genuinely don't care about a CEO's politics, despite the fact that this is a controversial viewpoint in today's divided society. As long as they don't affect business, I don't care about a specific employee's political views except for the part where they literally go woke in their so-called-political stand. However, I also do take attention when a business incorporates the leadership's beliefs into its goods or services.
Companies like Disney and Nike have evolved to take bold political viewpoints and frequently make the news. These companies' employees frequently encourage the larger corporation to adopt even more liberal policies and go even further to the left and that’s a no.
And in addition to these ultra-woke corporations, Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, has threatened to apply his ideology to his company in an extreme way.
According to Breitbart:
Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff is threatening to pull his software company’s operations out of Republican-run states if their policies do not align with his liberal worldview, specifically in regard to abortion policy.
Appearing on CNN Newsroom with Poppy Harlow on Friday, Benioff stated: “If you’re not for equality and dignity, then this is something that I cannot work with, and then we’re going to have to exit your city or your state.”
With food prices skyrocketing, it behooves Americans to have food they can store long-term. Freeze-dried, sous vide, organic chicken from Prepper Organics lasts up to 25 years and is available at 10% off right now.
Before making his threat, the billionaire mentioned that he is dealing with a “series of crazy presidents, crazy governors, crazy mayors” all over the country and world.
When Harlow pressed Benioff on who he thought was “crazy,” he did not mention a current situation but referenced Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act in 2015. After then-governor Mike Pence (R) signed the legislation, the billionaire tech CEO announced plans to cancel programs that would require customers and employees to travel to the Hoosier state.
Pence and other Republican legislators ultimately caved to Benioff’s and woke corporations’ demands by passing a revised amendment that effectively nullified the original piece of legislation passed.

Salesforce has been politicized by Benioff, who prioritizes winning the cultural war over satisfying consumers. Definitely, a hard pass…
As the Daily Wire further reported:
The day before Pence signed the bill, Benioff threatened to reduce his company’s investment in Indiana; after Pence signed the bill Benioff stated he would cancel Salesforce programs requiring customers or employees to travel to Indiana. The week after that, he publicly announced he would offer relocation packages to employees choosing to leave the state,
Pence would end up signing a revised version of the bill.
Harlow asked if Benioff would pull his company from states that had outlawed abortion or passed stricter laws against it.
“We actually just said, if you are going to discriminate against our employees, we won’t be able to set up shop there,” Benioff bragged of 2015. “And when we said that, 200 other companies the next day, the largest companies in the United States all said, ‘We agree. We have to support our LGBTQ communities as well.’”

Salesforce employs over 2,000 people in Indiana and has benefited from state incentives totaling tens of millions for job retention and creation. After the enormous increase in real estate and construction expenses over the past ten years, it would cost hundreds of millions to construct a new office complex to accommodate them.
Benioff would need to pay back the Indiana subsidies that covered the costs of his construction and employment, assuming he could locate 2,200 eligible workers to fill the positions in a new state.
This CEO's attitude suggests that he prioritizes his own politics over the welfare of his employees. He is essentially turning his firm into a weapon, which does not lead to wise business decisions.
A sign of instability is the CEO's readiness to hurt clients and staff for political reasons. Every company in America that uses Salesforce should find an alternative immediately.
