(DAILY CALLER) – Wayfair employees planned a walkout after learning the online furnishing company is going to fulfill an order to furnish a migrant camp and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is voicing her support.
The retailer is going ahead with a $200,000 bed and furniture sale to a detention facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas.
Almost 550 Wayfair employees signed a letter to executives on June 21 in opposition to the sale, The Washington Post reported. The company announced Monday it would be fulfilling the order.
