BONUS EP. 02:
THIS WEEK’S EPISODE IN A SMALL NUTSHELL:
Here is where we landed:
At goodr we believe that voting is a right, it doesn’t matter who or what you vote for. We believe that voting is a right, and a person’s ability to vote should not be suppressed by their employer, but empowered.
Because of those beliefs we decided to make Election Day an official paid holiday at goodr.
The goal of this week’s mini bonus episode is to convince just one listener to give their staff Tuesday aka Election Day (which happens to be 11/3 this year) off to go vote. If you don’t call those shots, submit an official request to HR and management to get the day off to vote.
Let’s make the case:
So the next step is to support the rights of your team, by giving them the day off! Or challenge your management by walking them through these exact steps. Verbatim. Take, ‘em for a walk! 1...2...3...
You may be thinking it’s not that simple Stephen! You also might be thinking: Can we afford to give people Election Day off? What about mail in ballots? The election should be on a Saturday! Early voting should last 30 days… blah. BLAH. BLAH. Those are all great debates, and we had the same debates two years ago at goodr.
At goodr we believe that voting is a right, it doesn’t matter who or what you vote for. We believe that voting is a right, and a person’s ability to vote should not be suppressed by their employer, but empowered. Because of those beliefs we decided to make Election Day an official paid holiday at goodr. (Yes, we know, we repeated ourselves. Tryna’ make a point here.)
Not to mention, Covid is making voting harder than ever this year. So let’s make life a little easier for our friends and colleagues.
If anyone makes this happen, we’d LOVE to hear about it. Please send your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Chief Executive Octopus will probably reach out to you personally with great excitement.
On that note, we’ll leave you with a quote from the late great Harry Caray, “If the moon were made of cheese, would you eat it? I would. It would be delicious.”
