I continue to feel bad for Greta.  People either trashing her or taking advantage of her.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

Here I'll correct the tweet:  "*Some men..."

There will be a cost.   There are 200K workers in coal,do you think they will all find equivalent jobs in their towns after coal is gone ?

If they're working in that dirty environment anyway, they may as well cover it with solar panels and wind turbines.  ;  )

--- dipshytes doing their best worst!

This is so disgusting.

"Someone" is X-Site Energy Services.
Their website seems to be down.
I TRULY TRULY hope this puts them TOTALLY out of business.

Redneck oil workers’ message to women:  Agree with your man, or you deserve to be raped. 

What a lovely sentiment.  Apparently, the president of this company admitted to the woman who first complained about the sticker that they were distributing them.  Later, to the press, he denied everything.

You can read.

Everything is they. Like unemployed workers are going to have the money to be “they”.

Website is down, messages are full, "We're swamped, folks! F*ck oil! We're makin' decals now! Decals are back-ordered till 2050!"   ???

X-site Energy Services: Apology, humility, and "organizational changes"

I'm betting the manager named Sparrow has been moved or removed.

Use your company to promote disgusting attitudes ?

Cancelled.

By the boss...

It does seem they're telling less than the truth, though:

These have nothing to do with our company, ...

And yet ...

X-Site said it is discussing a code of conduct with its employees and that it will hold sessions on respect in the workplace with all staff.

"We have let our employees, our families and our customers down with this careless action. But just as we are committed to help reduce our industry's environmental footprint, we are committed to learn from and correct our mistake," it said.

"We will do better."


Perhaps employing Sparrow was their 'mistake', and/or allowing a vile workplace culture to exist?

In either case, it certainly does appear that this does have quite a lot to do with their company.

Well, ultimately they are responsible but they can claim that the person did this of their own volition.

I think that response is normal - and they have attempted to remedy this.

Yes, I'm glad they are too.
And maybe it's a learning experience for other companies too.
