Major retailers around the nation have become battlegrounds for political correctness.
They used their businesses to make social statements.
It is not very wise to polarize your customer base with a divisive stance.
Home Depot’s competition, Lowe’s, has proven to stay true to their values and the American citizens, especially our nation’s heroes and their families. Their counterpart has received some pretty bad press over the past three years, regarding an apparent disrespect for the military. Most of this seemed to occur at the store level and not a decision condoned or approved by the corporation especially since the CEO of the home improvement is a major President Donald Trump supporter, which is a fact that the founder has not been shy about.
According to our source, Daily Vine, the Home Depot Foundation, a leadership arm for the company founded by Bernie Marcus, Arthur Blank and with the help of Ken Langone, hammered down on its pledge to closing the gap among skilled laborers in America. It announce that it would commit $50 million to train 20.000 tradespeople over the next ten years, starting with separating military and veterans, in a n effort to reduce the number of unfilled construction sector jobs in the United States.
“We want to bring shop class back, from coast-to-coast,” Shannon Gerber, executive director of The Home Depot Foundation, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to train 20,000 next-generation plumbers, electricians, carpenters and beyond. It’s a true honor to welcome our first classes of separating soldiers as they transition to civilian life and into successful careers in the trades.”
Our country needs to see more of this and it will, within the next four years under President Donald Trump’s leadership. He praises our military all the time and that is how it should be.
