    Advice to Management

    If you want to fight for progressive causes, progress. You have the chance to be a leader in social change and instead are choosing to treat your employees so badly that your reputation affects your ability to do good work. When people look for the leading environmental groups, public interest groups and lgbt rights groups, it wont be you all and that's your own doing. Ask yourself, if you're alienating right inherently with the causes you work on and the left by never progressing on workers rights issues, who's support do you expect?
