Titans of travel have made a strong political statement, how do you feel?
This blog isn’t about to step into the political fray, but when I saw the headlines that large corporations were stripping NRA member discounts, it certainly signified strong statements from these corporations. I, personally, have friends that stand on both sides of the gun regulation debate, the NRA, and they are VERY opinionated and move to action swiftly.
I’m interested to hear your thoughts, not on the gun debate, but rather the companies taking action in the way they have.
Have the corps taken a political stance? Or is this a bottom line driven decision: i.e. they analyzed that their bottom line is better off stripping the discounts and risking boycott from NRA members than it is allowing the discounts and risking boycott from anti-NRA-ers? Nonetheless it’s a bold move in the wake of the NFL losing viewership amidst political turmoil, and one that will be interesting to watch unfold.
Here’s the tweets from some of the major corporations. Click to read the commentary back and forth – very interesting.
Here’s a full list of the companies that have boycotted thus far:
- Alamo Rent a Car
- Allied Van Lines
- Chubb Insurance
- Delta Air Lines
- Enterprise Rent-a-Car
- First National Bank of Omaha
- North American Van Lines
- Paramount Rx
