Feds should butt out of Whole Foods dispute over BLM gear

Can you envision if the federal authorities instructed a non-public retail organization, that they are authorized to ban political speech by workers although on the position, but they have to make an exception for those that want to don a “MAGA” t-shirt? Or an, “All Life Matter” hat?

Can you picture wanting the authorities to at any time have that authority? I simply cannot and I really don’t.  So, why does the govt consider they can inform a private retailer they can ban political speech or slogans from workforce at the perform area, but they must make an exception for the slogan, “Black Life Matter”?  This is not about the help or opposition to “Black Life Matter”.  This about the rights of a personal business and a enormous above-reach from an arm of the federal governing administration.

Complete Food items Market place, the mega organic grocery chain is in a lawful struggle with the National Labor Relations Board, a federal agency “vested with the energy to safeguard employees’ rights to manage and to decide irrespective of whether to have unions as their bargaining agent. The agency also functions to reduce and remedy unfair labor practices committed by private sector employers and unions.” (nlrb.gov)

The saga begun in 2020, when a team of personnel sued following becoming banned and threatened with termination if they ongoing to flout the business policy prohibiting “employees from carrying apparel with obvious slogans, messages, or logos exhibiting statements not similar to the firm.” The employees experienced worn and wanted to go on to put on “BLM” or “Black Lives Matter” apparel while on the position.  The NLRB claims Entire Meals broke federal labor legislation by not making it possible for, extremely specially, the “Black Lives Matter” slogan on masks or garments. 

My 1st problem is, why is the NLRB involved in this?

My next question is, is any one particular else involved that the federal govt is dictating to non-public company not only “if” they can have a gown code for personnel, but “what” that dress code can be?
