I started working for myself and everything. I was worried about before. In my mind i was like dude. I was worried about that. I'm i'm worked for myself now. I'm responsible a got my independence back. I got my independence back. I got my filth important that you to myself. Do you understand what i'm saying. I do absolutely do and you know it was not.

Goya In Three Boycotts
"Goya is a giant in the united states. Food industry today. The company is worth over one billion dollars and employs over four thousand people in dozens of factories throughout the country and abroad. It's also a staple in latino homes across the us. Pino is a huge part of goya's consumer base after goya foods. Ceo robert hunan away spoke in the white house rose garden last summer. Producer governor elevator be realized. She had a lot of questions about the brand receiving. All of this attention gabardine started digging into goya itself. The family behind the brand and some of the past controversies that the company has weathered through governors reporting. She discovered a common theme repeating itself over the years. Something bigger than any single news. Headline goya is more than pantry. Staples and spices to its customers. Specifically it's latino customers for many that the united latina's goya is like a badge of identity. So that's a pretty tall order for a company a gabby and welcome to the show. Hi maria so tell us what happened that you were like I need to spend some more time thinking about goya food products and that this led you down a rabbit hole so yeah before the boycott i had no idea who the union-wide family was. I grew up with goya beans but didn't know or never really thought about how. This company became a symbol of latino identity in the us. Clearly it wasn't about how much people love their beans adobo. It was something much deeper than that. Goya evoke emotions for many latinos and in researching goya. I found three separate boycotts spanning decades. Were goya's carefully crafted. Image as a symbol of latino identity was thrown into question. One in miami. One in new york and puerto rico and the other one from the summer and together. They helped not so rosy story about this powerful company. But before i jump in. It's important to understand. The history of the brand in how the unanimous family used their immigrant background to craft their business image. Okay so we know that. Goya was founded in the nineteen thirties. By on prudence your own anway and his wife catalina and don't pull. The nco was actually a merchant from spain right. He arrived in puerto rico from spain and nineteen o two then moved to the united states and started a small business in new york city importing goods from spain. That business eventually became goya foods rubber yunan way goya's currency. Eeo often tells his grandfather's story he mistakes from home and he. He had an idea that other immigrants also mistake from home done. Prudencio started importing goods like olive oil and other hand fish products to his shop on the lower east side serving the spanish emigrant community but then ends up being really Latino brand for the entire population. I mean it grows and this is their primary. Customers are latinos and latinas. So tell us the story of how don't do the answer becomes so successful in expanding this business after world war two. Us factory owners took advantage of the depression in puerto rico to outsource cheap labor from the island and in the span of just one year the puerto rican population in new york city nearly quadrupled from thirteen thousand to over fifty thousand people. I spoke with puerto rican food historian professor crews miguel ortiz quadra. About how you non capitalized on this. Migration wave to grow his business. The political and economical racial love voting Rico in the nineteen forties. These open a huge door Success of goya foods huntington bank element with Habits was historic. Make no mistake immigrant himself or not. I know that this big i migrated would throw with. Its foot my maurice food memories. I mean that's a great concept right this notion of you know eating rice and beans as a kid or or you know making fresh tamales over the holidays with your family. I mean there is this thing memories and we all have them yeah. It's this idea. That food is personal. Professor ortiz quadra often refers to this term food or palate memories. I coined the term in his book eating puerto rico and he uses this concept to describe the intimate bond with food formed by cultural and historical practices. So this idea that the food we eat reflects our values choices and culture and its central and understanding. Goya's rise so more. Puerto ricans moved into new york city and there was the experience of racism and xenophobia. That a lot of outside communities experience puerto ricans are not immigrants right because they're just moving from one part of the united states to another part of the united states but as it was in new york city that wasn't welcoming to many puerto ricans that increases the need for food to be a place where you find solace and comfort right exactly for this. Oh so important. If can't trace you back to your homeland the To the homeland and to the foot try and so forth in the diaspora done prudencio. Continue to build goya. The city's growing emigrant community from latin america. He knew that capitalizing on food memories was a powerful business strategy.

"You said something about an update involving Ivanka Trump. And that was it. The Goya food company, right? Beans. So if you remember back to July, the CEO of Goya food, which is like a company that makes you know beans and predominantly things for Hispanic meals, their CEO came out as a trump supporter on Ivanka Trump posted like an instagram picture or tweet. Of her enjoying some Goya beans. And Internet lost its mind. How dare they? You had like one of the Castro brothers calling for a boycott of Goya Foods. A O. C called for a boycott of Goya Foods again because the CEO said it was a trump supporter and invoice to support Correct s O. We had Congressman We had lawmakers calling for boycotts. Right, you oven industry. Wow, You've got celebrities to Chrissy Teegan, Who's the wife of John Legend? She was calling for a boycott of Goya foods, but nobody was more outspoken about it than a O. C. Watts. So here's the update, and we're just now finding out that all the stuff went on Goya Foods. Their president revealed that after AOC called for the boycott They had their biggest quarter of the year and went on to turn a profit. At the end of the year. There's only you know, handful of days left in 2020, but the numbers were so good that the Goya Foods president named AOC Their employee of the month mailed her a certificate along with some coupons with the letter thanking her and her help and raising all of their sales during these crazy times, fingers that's hilarious. Let me ask you this. Do you think it was because AOC came out and said We want a boycott of Goya foods or wasn't that even ca posted? Ah, positive tweet about the beans. I think it was a O. C. I think it was a O. C calling boycott because it feels like this is kind of what Republicans do, right. We're willing to take a little crap. But when you start calling for the boycott, we're going the other direction. That's the direction that we're going to go. There was some musician and I can't remember who it was. That goes a no name person that war like a pro trump gown. To the Grammy Awards or something, and I don't know what her name was.

C and other lawmakers calling for a boycott of an American producer of foods, a business in American business? For the mere vocal support of the president of the United States. That should scare people. That's the peaceful and tolerant left knives. What do you talking about? Um, take a dub of all days. I think today's the day where we need to do some booze news set.

"O s radio. We tend to begin our program by sharing a couple of news flashes that may be of interest to her listeners. The first newsflash has something to do with the culture war that America is in right now. Yes, there is a culture war and all of us whether we know it or not have been in this conflict for some time. It's just that the realities of this fight are now being exposed their being revealed in the public square. The men of our listening audience are aware of this fact and as the days and as the weeks and as the months progressed, I'm sensing that this culture war that we're experiencing in one way or another is deepening and where it will lead if unabated is uncertain. But the way I see things progressing in a certain way, there are times even moments where I see. Ah, push back, Ah, fighting spirit that reveals a potential Turn of the tide. Well, this week revealed one of those turns and an entails it regards a boycott that was levied against a company the company Is Goya Foods. Goya Foods is the largest Hispanic owned food company in the United States and the CEO of the company As Robert Una Nu. He's 1/3 generation Spaniard. His grandfather immigrated to the U. S from Spain in 1936 and founded Goya Foods and Goya Foods has become a multi $1,000,000,000 company. A $1,000,000,000 company that gives millions of dollars of food away two kitchens and homeless shelters around the country. Another president recently invited Robert and I knew to be a part of a commission that would focus on creating opportunities for Hispanic Americans, and it was held in the Rose Garden in the White House, and the event was to celebrate the president's Hispanic prosperity Initiative. And at this event, the CEO of Goya Foods have the opportunity to talk in his remarks. He spoke about the opportunities that America as a nation can provide. Now to any casual listener. The speech was a well delivered well thought out speech, and here's a brief snippet of what he said. Quote We are truly blessed. You have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder, and that is what my grandfather did. He came to this country to build to grow and to prosper. And so we have an incredible builder and we pray. We pray for our leadership, our president and we pray for our country that we will continue to prosper. And to grow. Now. That was a great statement, which no sane person could disagree with. Well as many of you are listening to our program already know there was outrage, outrage that this CEO would dare say something complimentary about our president, and so there was from the radical left a universal called to boycott. Goya Foods. No, it doesn't matter what you feel about the president. It still was a great statement that the CEO Goya Foods gave and this is not the first time that the CEO of Goya Foods has spoken in front of a president. He did the same thing with the previous administration and praised that administration for the work that they were doing. Not this call to boycott falls under a what I would say is a tactical strategy. A tactical strategy called Council culture. I want you to know that phrase. I want you to really know it, Counsel Culture. Many of you have heard that before. What is it? Well, it's a weapon. And it's a weapon that originated with the left. And as if you could say a reboot. Or you could say an update a resurrection if you will. Of what the Communists did back in the day with those who didn't agree with the ideology of the state, But in those days they didn't cancel you. They canceled you. In other words, you disappeared. You truly were canceled. When council culture is today is really the militant wing off political correctness now know we left at political correctness. We make fun of it. But council culture is here to enforce it. You could say it is like the Gestapo. Or the brownshirts of Hitler or the black shirts off Mussolini's fascists, and they do the work with impunity, and they have the full blessing of the media. And that's what counsel culture is in. This weapon was unleashed against Goya Foods, a boycott. To not buy any product that Goya produced. But in this called end Goya foods to destroy this company, something unexpected happened. And what was that? Babe, I caught began. Now. What do I mean by that? Well, a bye. Kat is the act of buying something from a company that shares the same values that you have. Well, it turned out that many Countless numbers of people have been buying Goya products because off the boycott, and the sales of Goya have been soaring, and it appears that the products can't stay on the shelves. Within 24 hours of the boycott by the left, Goya gained 100,000 new Facebook followers. You may have heard about a young man named Casey Harper. He said it But go fund me page desire ING just to raise $10,000 to buy Goya products for food pantries across the nation. Within one day. Casey Harper raise more than 88,000 and of last Tuesday. He has raised nearly 160,000. All he wanted to do was raise 10,000. But people have been voting with their wallets and purses and have been supporting Goya Foods. Here's what Casey Harper said to the media due to the overwhelming response to his go fund me page. Here's what he said. Quote. I'm not surprised. We have raised so much because people are tired of having to walk on eggshells in political discourse. Also, Americans are fundamentally generous people, so a chance to feed the hungry and extend up to counsel culture, Wass and easy win unquote. Well, the boycott against an innocent company has backfired hasn't and what we're learning is that there is apparently a new playing field in this culture war that many didn't know existed. And this playing field it has to do with where and with whom consumers will spend their money. What this means that we're promoting our political values. Through what we consume, and what we don't consume and was being seen by scholars and economists is that companies are now being divided and categorized by their political views. Their companies that are liberal companies that we know all too well. Companies like like Google, Apple, Disney and there, Cos they're more conservative companies like Hobby Lobby Chick Fillet, Mykland. L's my pillow and so forth, and so As time goes on. What is being suggested by economists was being thought by scholars is that companies will continue to move or be divided into these categories. Now. Usually a company wants to please everyone because doesn't want political views to keep consumers away. This is not what's happening. And what this is doing is that it's creating an opening in which council culture can be nullified by companies deliberately choosing to cater to customers that share their own values. This is a trend that we're going to be seeing and what it will do is it will destroy the weapon of council culture because a company That caters to those who share their values isn't going to be hurt by an attack that is directed against it because the customer already supports the company because of its shared values. Down to elaborate on this effect. Here's what Dr Steve Turley stated on a recent podcasts. Quote Our economy is being partisan ized. It is being reconfigured around political lines as consumers are using the power of their wallets to promote their political values. This.

"Because I'm the spokesman for a place called Camp Hope, and we have about 90 residents who are combat veterans beating PTSD every single day. And so we always need more food.

When Michelle Obama had her good health initiative for inner city, black and Hispanic Children. They donated foods to that, too. You know, most businesses out there are just trying to do right by their employees. And by their customers. And this is a great example. This should be the type of company That we should all be proud of. And there shouldn't be a single politician. Of either party. Criticizing the CEO. For saying that he thinks that the president is doing a good job What every politician should have been saying instead of remarking on his politics if they didn't like him or his his gesture if they didn't like it They should have been commenting on the fact that he was making a massive donation to people.

S so now they're trying to go after them for ethics violations. They can't promote a product. You'll see this all day and night to watch Chris Cuomo last night that steroid nutty Chris Cuomo. How dare the president. What if there's trouble in the world out, dear, he's waste time. Promoting Goya. Why it's silly. Why would he do anything so silly? Then, of course. Everybody immediately posted the comedy routines he was doing with his brother, the governor with big, huge props. Remember that big six foot swab and all that clowning around and joking around the middle of Corona virus in nursing home deaths, and also he's more guilty than anybody of that, But I checked Sales of Goya Foods. Up in the last week. Way up, So it has helped Goya foods. They're making a lot of money right now, anyway, Let's take some calls. Let's go, Teo Buck in New Jersey. Hey, Buck, how you doing? How you doing, Mark? You're doing a great job. Listen, I go to the beach every single weekend with my wife that we'll sit by the Inland sea full little all trump sides Trump for president. Now, my job I drive from Atlantic City. All we have to Elmwood Park every day. I see banners, Flags, poster size Trump for president. I have not not every kid mark. I have not seen one. Joe Biden Sign poster batter for president ever. You should change Think Joe Extinction. Yeah, That's a good point. Thanks for calling. I know you said. Well, what about these polls? The polls are totally public Polls are totally rigged. They don't put very many Republicans in the sample. No matter how many times explain this, it never quite sinks into. They still believe these poles. Republicans and using 23 24% of the sample should be 36%. So right wave shaved 12 points off Donald Trump right there. Then they don't use likely voters, which are the people you're supposed to serve. They use what they call adults, which means they can pick whoever they want to be in the poll that shaves another five points or so. Rigged, rigged rigged polls. Look at the president in this past primary week out there, every candidate a campaign for one big that tells you something right there. Let's go to Davin. Chicago. Dave, How you doing? Very well, Mark. Good morning. I was wondering as far as Corona virus is concerned, Uh, Thanksgiving restaurants. Will there be indoor dining, and even if there are will they take a massive hit, and secondly, finally marked black Friday? A lot of people are used to shopping at home. But are there gonna be lining up with social distancing and Mass and trying to get the door busters and whatnot? Well, we'll see. That's a good question. First. You're not allowed to call it Black Friday, anywhere will be something else have to change the name. Ah, Thanksgiving. It'll be interesting, but you know, we gotta wait and see. Gotta wait and see. There's a couple of things you gotta remember. I mean, don't get your hopes up, but a couple of things can happen. The virus could just go away. At some point. This has happened with every other virus. At some point it just goes away. It just mutates into nothing and goes away. Happened with swine flu all that even the great pandemic in 1918 1919. It just went away at one point just mutated out and gone. Now, the bad news there In that case it took. I think a year and 1/2 almost two years to go, But it went away at some point. But this could right now The vice has been weakening its been mutating, weaker and weaker and weaker. Now, some experts will tell you that doesn't necessarily mean it's going away. Sometimes it hides for awhile comes roaring back. Sometimes it just goes away, so we'll wait. See what happens now. The other for the vaccine is a long way off, and the vaccine will be risky. Even if that Comes out what they call the therapeutics, the drugs, they treat it with Hydroxy Clark. One has been very effective. As has a Z Pak or Al Jinn, Orin disappear. There's about seven things they use right now, At any moment, they might find a couple more that really bring down the symptoms. So that's another way. And they treated much better Now that they've got these drugs, you know, the death rate is approaching zero. Right now. It's 0.36 It's getting close to zero. You know, as you see the spike in Florida and Texas and all of that. They never point out that the death rate is plunging in those states, So they're treating this much better now, much better results with those with those drugs, those therapeutics, let's take one more call to go to Tom and Pennsylvania. Tom. How you doing? Hey, Mark, I'm doing good. How are you? Good. A mark. So I'm with you on the math. I'm okay with wearing a mask. If you know you have to put one on to go into a store, But I did happen upon the American Association of Positions. Insurgents issue issued a report and it says very clearly that As 95 mask will keep out a 950.3 micro meter particulate. The Corona virus particulate is 0.12 Fuck. I understand. Yeah, but thanks, Tom. But here's the thing. You don't need an N 95 mask and the mask is not going to protect you from getting the virus. That's not the idea. You write. The particulars can get through the mask. You could have the mask on and still catch it. But What you want is aware Messer. You don't spread it. If everybody has amassed nobody's spreading. It is generally spread by the droplets coming out of your mouth, so the mask will pretty much prevent those droplets from going any place. So that's the reason you were it'sjust if everyone's wearing it And this has been tested. It dramatically reduces the odds of other people get. It won't protect you, but it'll protect other people. Ah, when we come back Ray Kelly, now there's no better expert in the world. On the police department's What to do. Fighting crime will get all of that In a moment on 7 10 W O R Let's get the latest news here is no only Mark. Mayor De Blasio says he's feeling cautious about beginning phase four of reopening on Monday..

Not only I do I love it because it gives them a better chances thing in business I love the whole field of the streets, in Boston and Cambridge or wherever where people out and. I love it. The streets are closed. Or at least partially close, but while three hundred of those approvals have been given I think the same story said only ten ramps. have been approved if that's right. There's a big disconnect right if you're in the street by definition. To be in compliance, you need to be able to get somebody down ramp or operatic. No. I don't see that is so far this week. More than ten restaurants have requested and received ramps because it was a new initiative. Okay, they've just made the portable request form which the Boston Globe story linked to the needs will be assessed, so not every restaurant as I were call.

I don't know in two thousand eighteen, or whatever on the whole variety of changes, the tip minimum wage. was raised, but not abolished I think by twenty twenty three. It goes the six seventy five, which is still it's higher, but still pathetically low. The national is two dollars and fifteen cents, which is just I mean just. Why don't you make the workers pay the federal government to work? I mean really I mean it's just but in any case, the point two states that like to think that they're leading the charge in so many progressive things Massachusetts in new. York are at least in my estimation on the wrong side of this tip, minimum wage issue because of the power of the National Restaurant Association to represent mostly the bigger businesses restaurant owners. What's confusing all of us who care so much about protecting workers is the number of people like Jose Andrei cool will support it or the Great Danny Meyer The New York restaurants who cares enormously about workers who tried abolishing and remember incorporating restaurant prices raising site.

History then. They feel that they're gone for good. Yeah I. Mean just this is just horrible. It's just horrible. Also. Tell. There was a great story about the whole minimum wage tipping, and how people are hanging on by a thread there to update us on what's going on with? Tipped minimum. Wage, Car Kobe. Minimum Wage is is very complicated. Why complicated because it pays very paltry wage to workers who have the option and many of the workers preferred option of getting a lot of tips, and getting way above minimum wage in theory, the restaurants that have tipped minimum wage are required to make any difference if it's a really bad really slow week at a server has not cleared enough tips to make. Make minimum wage by law. Anybody who paid tipped minimum wage, which is a very low minimum wage is required to make up that difference at the end of the week. The problem is that's the law and the requirement, but there isn't even enforcement of it, so restaurant opportunities center, which is a very powerful and very good worker, rights, organization and other worker rights. Advocates have been trying for years to abolish. Abolish tip, minimum wage, California and at least seven other states have for years abolished it, but in various places it gets voted in by by a populous on a ballot measure, and then the state legislature or the city of Washington DC happened in Washington will reverse because powerful restaurant owners like having the tipped minimum wage option, but now in a time of desperation for restaurants, and for so little work. Work among workers the restaurant. Workers are trying to abolish this again and saying that the safety net of a guaranteed minimum wage, not the low minimum wage is the way to go for all workers it, so it's reopened alive controversy and I have no idea how in play out you know the thing I didn't understand. The piece of corby is is well virtually every restaurant tour. We know well here. Speaks about their workers in their suffering I the first thing out of their mouths but I. my sense is they may be aspirational. I hope they're not but in the story they talked about some restaurant owners who used to be in favor of the lower minimum wage because of covid nineteen now flipping their position, and are now supporting it I understand that in the abstract, because obviously the point is, you're making less of your server, because there's less business, but the restaurant is more press two. So why are some of these enlightened restaurant types the owners? Siding with their services I wish they would, but it surprises me. It surprises me, too. What has surprised me about? This? Whole? Controversy is the number of people like Jose Andrei in national hero. He was against changing the minimum wage He thought it worked out better for his workers and he didn't want it to happen, so he was in favor of having the Washington. DC popular populations. Vote reverse at in. The city council, so he went on the record as saying tip minimum wage is better for workers and better for owners, so it's it's a funny Stu people I'm always for what will protect the backs of the workers, so if they're a new owner thing.

I thought he had a good thing to say. And here's the thing right. You know that. I don't care for presidents from either party. I think there's too much power in Washington, D C. I think there's too much power in the executive branch. But e. There is one, right, so libertarians like me, we consider around and think about what it would be like with the greatly diminished government and a greatly diminished executive branch and Anna greatly diminished president of the United States. We can sit around and think that But until the government goes bankrupt, we're probably not going to see that for a while. So there's a president. And and whether it's Obama or whether it's trump or whether it's Clinton or whether it's Harding or whether it's Buchanan. There's a president and the guy is sitting or the gal right is sitting in the in the Oval Office and doing president things doing normal president things and one of those normal president.

And so many of you online on Facebook are saying that you're going out shopping Goya today, too, And if you can make it be a charitable purchase. That's a great idea, too. I got an angry letter from somebody an angry email from somebody you don't understand. You're not really helping the food banks. It would be better for you to give money to the food bank because they can buy food in bulk and be more efficient than you think. People just don't get it. What we're trying to do is do two things with one action. You see, this is the difference between capitalist conservatives. And left this liberals. They can only do one thing at a time. They can only keep one idea in their heads at a time trump bad and that's all they can handle. So we're trying to help Goya support a good American company and helped the food banks at the same time. You see how that works The phones. They're starting a pop. 886309625 Triple 8609625 Mike In Springfield. Welcome to the Chris Plante Show, Sir. Good morning. Enjoying the show. Thank you, sir. God bless you. What's on your mind? Just trying to rationalize the Democrats Mind where President Jo bike with your tax dollars to support American employees and companies while his party boycott of American company employees of which Gloria Has 3500 employees based out of New York. It just doesn't make any sense. It doesn't And isn't it wonderful when they do this, and we could just point to them and just say you guys just don't get it, and he has aligned himself with Alexandria occasionally coherent and she's gonna chase thousands of jobs out of her district. Because he didn't like Amazon. And so I wonder if he's now saying she's supporting the Goya boycott, And I wonder how her constituents feels, especially you bring up. They have a very large plant in New York. It's so much fun to watch them twist themselves. And contort themselves into these positions that they have no idea how ridiculous they are, Mike. Thank you Think it's a great great call? Alright. Ah, Teresa and on Lee is joining us How low Theresa, Welcome to the crisp my memory aria, I wantto just give a shout out to all of my real friends.

It's Friday. People are looking forward to their weekends. People We're going to church er to whatever house of worship point point is another point that we really need to point out. That I don't know. A lot of people are these types of things. We're feeding the homeless, which they are.

Yeah, You're right, Theresa and I point to the lefties and stay. Oh, yeah. Remember what happened in Seattle in the chops zone? When the homeless people came in asked for food, and you have braked out and started crying. Yeah. I just don't think they get it to reason. But thank you. Great.
