Bloomberg Under Fire for Poor Treatment of Women at His Company

Billionaire businessman Michael Bloomberg threw himself into the 2020 presidential election weeks ago on a whim. Bloomberg’s entry into the race came after five Democrat debates and months of candidates campaigning for office.

Since Bloomberg’s newfound status as a 2020 candidate, he’s generated a fair amount of press for himself; however, this press hasn’t exactly covered him very favorably. To date, Bloomberg has taken heat for throwing tens of millions of dollars on ads and boosting himself in the polls. This caused the businessman’s in-party competitors to accuse him of attempting to buy the election.

Additionally, Bloomberg is on-record making some very troubling anti-Second Amendment statements. According to the businessman, Americans who want to keep guns in their homes are “stupid” and, on multiple occasions, the 2020 Democrat has vowed to take on “the gun lobby.”

Now, new reports from Fox Business confirm that Bloomberg is in hot water for the manner in which his company treats women. Concerning reports indicate that the newfound 2020 Democrat has a history of dismissing women who work for him and subjecting them to poor work experiences.

A Closer Look at Bloomberg’s Questionable Treatment of Women

At this time, former employees of Bloomberg are accusing the businessman of discrimination, harassment, sexism, unfair terminations, and more. To date, Bloomberg’s company has faced allegations of a “hostile work environment” and worse. Many accusers of the 2020 Democrat initiated lawsuits, yet presently remain largely confined to silence due to nondisclosure agreements (NDAs).

In the wake of various allegations against himself and his company, Bloomberg is attempting to defend himself. The billionaire businessman responded to the troubling allegations against him on Sunday during a campaign stop in North Carolina.

Bloomberg maintains that his company always treats women fairly and asserted good retention rates with both male and female employees. The 2020 Democrat also went on to state that while “there will always be somebody that’s not happy,” his company’s treatment of everyone is fair and equal “in terms of compensation and promotions and authority.”

What Other Skeletons Lie in Bloomberg’s Closet?

As Bloomberg continues his campaign for president, it’s likely that additional, unsavory details will come to light. In the wake of the preceding accusations, the businessman is being urged to release his former employees from their nondisclosure agreements; however, Bloomberg has yet to indicate that he plans to do any such thing.

When it comes to the 2020 presidential election, the candidate’s tens of millions of dollars can only take him so far.

Bloomberg may be able to buy countless ads, but he cannot buy voter enthusiasm. No one is really all that eager for Bloomberg to become president. Moreover, higher-ups within the Democrat Party have a history of working behind the scenes to hand the nomination over to their desired candidate.
