Plenty of people on both sides of the aisle are weighing in.
Gov. Sarah Palin, one of the biggest names there is in conservative circles, gave her two cents on the subject and let’s just say liberal heads are guaranteed to explode.
From Washington Examiner:
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says the corporate culture needs to change at her former employer Fox News.
“Corporate culture there obviously has to change. You know, women don’t deserve – they should not ever have to put up with any kind of intimidating workspace,” Palin told CNN.
She also added that women who do face sexual harassment in the workplace should speak out and not remain in hostile environments just to collect a paycheck.
“If a woman believes that she is being intimidated and harassed, she needs to stand up and do something about it, not stick around for a paycheck for years and years and years, and then after the fact complain about what she went through,” Palin said.
Here’s some video.
Obviously, the left will say Palin is blaming the victim when she says you shouldn’t keep taking a paycheck.
She’s not. Fox did a bad job creating a good environment for employees. However, at the same time, there is a level of personal accountability that should at least be talked about. It’s ridiculous that we can’t even suggest that maybe you should leave your job if you are getting harassed. It’s the company’s job to protect you. But, Fox clearly was doing a bad job at that.
Palin is absolutely correct. Some of these allegations are from years ago. Why was it not a problem then? Why are you piling on now? Those are questions that should at least be asked even if they are never answered. If someone is doing something wrong then they should be called out for it immediately.
