Notes from the Producer
It took courage for Nick Williams to turn down multiple six figures of hush money to speak out against American Express. He joins Andrew today to share how he went from being the #1 sales performer in the company, to being fired. He gives Andrew inside information about Amex’s purge of white males, and the legal shenanigans they used to justify their actions.
Nick is not only speaking out about the woke corruption that is destroying a company he loved, but empowering employees across the country to anonymously speak out against corruption in their own companies.
Nick Talks About
How Amex was a healthy, diverse, productive company when Nick started there and how it changed through the woke influence.
How he used to be hesitant to speak out against wokeness, injustice, and hypocrisy at Amex, until he couldn’t suppress his voice any longer.
The 11 attorneys retained to weave a narrative that justified Nick’s firing, including the KGB-style interview tactics, and six-figure sum Nick was offered as hush money.
Amex’s bonus BS of 2020.
The future of Amex, including their loss of top talent, and the inevitable re-direction coming from the board.
How the only employees who received raises in 2020 were African Americans, some seeing as much as $40,000 bumps to their base pay.
The tendency we have to pit our values against the "safety net" of our job.
How today’s tight labor market might be the perfect time for you to start your own endeavor, or consider a different job – with people who value your worldview, work ethic, and freedom.
