I mean who is most likely to be interested enough in a museum to volunteer their time? I hope people stop donating and this museum crashes and burns.

They let go of the volunteers and are replacing them with $25/hr paid workers.

Well, the volunteers should have been first in fucking line for those jobs.

And to think, the people who are supposed to help youngsters find employment will say: "Do volunteer work! It can lead to a paid job!" Bleah.

Nobody, not even the boomers who espouse that bullshit, rewards dedication anymore. They just see dedicated people as fools who deserve to be exploited and then tossed aside when they are no longer seen as useful.

This applies mostly to salary management. In my years with the company I'm with now, I've sen more low level managers turn tail than any other position in the company who are hourly. I was asked if I wanted to get into the LEAD program, and I replied "no, I like my work here and the money I make. I will make less in management and my skills will not be utilized." Their only response was your opportunities to make more money will grow. So I reminded them that they are my managers managers and that the positions they have were given to them through their network of friends and confidants. They didn't like that, but for some reason the EEO paid attention. Though, I don't know if their sacking relates to my expression. I did write to corporate about how low level management was constantly turning over and it was affecting company growth.

I saw that but I don’t get why they didn’t at least offer jobs to some of those volunteers

Because they aren't diverse enough for the white president of the Art Institute of Chicago.

And as that post pointed out these woke people in charge never step down themselves if they are so “down for the cause”. Or they step down after making lots of money.

It never will, worst case the city government steps in, shames people for their whiteness and then levies more taxes from white people/business to pay for the museum

My baseless claim is that the museum is receiving "infrastructure" money to pay for the new help - and obeying the agenda will keep the money flowing to the suits.

You know damn good and well that every one of those volunteers were liberal bitches. Hope they’re enjoying what their lifetimes of leftist voting and activism has created!

Older women lean conservative. almost half of women voted for trump. there could be more than 50 of them who aren't libs.

No, you don't know that, that's your cope of dealing with it. You just want to victim blame like an asshole without any actual knowledge of their political beliefs.

I mean white women in an urban environment, volunteering at an art museum it's a safe bet they vote Democrat

Just because you want to say "she was asking for it" doesn't mean you're correct.

Here comes Sir White Knight to make a rape analogy to shut down any dissent against women. Do we know they were liberal women for sure, no. But considering they are white women in a liberal city working in an industry dominated by progressives it's not a reach the women tip toward the liberal side. No but please imply I'm a rapist because I said the chances of them being liberal are high.

Your argument is that they were asking to be fired.

Visiting the museum was a way for white women to worship themselves and how woke they are.

What it takes to volunteer:

two training sessions per week for eighteen months, and then “five years of continual research and writing to meet the criteria of 13 museum content areas” (quote from the docents’ letter to the Director of the AIC). On top of that, there’s monthly and biweekly training on new exhibits. Then there are the tours themselves, with a docent giving up to two one-hour tours per day for 18 weeks of the year and a minimum of 24 one-hour tours with adults/families. Their average length of service: 15 years.

That's not volunteering, that's a fucking job schedule!

These sorts of volunteers are old, wealthy white women. They don't have to worry about money since they already got loads of it and things like this are mainly so they get an excuse to get out of their high-rise or manse so they don't wither away after retirement. Doing something related to an area of interest is just a bonus

Pretty much why you see old white people volunteering at all sorts of museums tbh.

Ah, so idiots with both too much time and money on their hands that they feel the need to be "useful" even when objectively they're doing little to fuck all of anything beneficial and in other cases things which are downright harmful.

God forbid people too old to do much else share their knowledge and love of art with others.

Yeah it should be a crime and outrage that they werent lawfully required to be paid for such a position.

Maybe? The loop hole could be that since they were unpaid, its not "that bad". That or the volunteers wont raise a stink because "diversity is our strength, good for the new employees"

3
BidenLikesMiners 3 points ago +3 / -0

But surely replacing an unpaid job with a paid one is injurious.

Kinda amazing they can just ignore the civil rights act openly like they have been. The blacks participating in this would be best to stop being greedy,racist and realize they are being used.

“Many of the volunteers—though not all—are older white women, who have the time and resources to devote so much free labor to the Museum,” reports the Why Evolution is True blog.

“But the demographics of that group weren’t appealing to the AIC, and so, in late September, the AIC fired all of them, saying they’d be replaced by smaller number of hired volunteers workers who will be paid $25 an hour. That group will surely meet the envisioned diversity goals.”

What cunts. These nice old ladies keep your shitty museum afloat, and you fire them to pay some retarded hipsters to do a WORSE job. Youre ALL gay naga faggots

If you're white and you still live in Chicago, I mean, come on. What's wrong with you?

PostyMcGee 2 points ago +2 / -0

The painting in the article is pathetic, but they have American Gothic there and by the looks of it a lot of other cool stuff. They need to move those treasures to a whiter city before the place gets burned down. I'm serious. I think they did that in maybe Detroit or somewhere when it went belly up and they complained it was racist robbery, even though the creations were those of Whites. Some of that stuff is irreplaceable, unlike the poor volunteers... EDIT: *hit they have Van Gogh stuff there, Renoir. What a freaking waste. Move it to New York if you have to. The Jews at least protect the museum stuff there.

I am of the belief this is because they want to fail and thus, get government bailouts and run with their money. Joggers only do two things with this shit, destroy it or steal it.

If I had to bet I would give very favorable odds that the volunteers are egalitarians. As such this is a highly humorous red-pill outcome that they just got hit with. If they allowed themselves to realize, it which is quite possible they won't since cognitive dissonance is highly disruptive and people only deal with it when they have no choice. For that, it is entirely dependent on the individual person.

On a side note cognitive dissonance is very interesting in that you almost always see the physical manifestations of it in a person. It is easily recognizable once you have seen it a few times.
