THE SHOCKING REASON THIS ART MUSEUM REPLACED UNPAID VOLUNTEERS WITH PAID WORKERS
A[n]…art museum…fired hundreds of…volunteers and replaced them with paid workers because they were…white…
The Art Institute of Chicago had been able to depend on the help of 122 highly skilled volunteers…to act as guides to the Museum’s collection…which they explain in great detail to visitors.
The volunteers also acted as “school group greeters” to help children understand the importance of what they were seeing.
Training requirements for the position were intense, and the volunteers were apparently doing a great job.
But now they’ve now all been dismissed…
“Many of the volunteers…are older white women, who have the time and resources to devote…to the Museum,” reports the Why Evolution is True blog.
“But the demographics of that group weren’t appealing to the AIC, and so…the AIC fired all of them, saying they’d be replaced by…workers who will be paid $25 an hour…”
“Paying the replacements will not result in more knowledgeable docents. But they won’t be Caucasian; that’s the important thing,” writes Dave Blount…
Racism is nuts whether it comes from left or right https://t.co/4UeN5q9g8G

This is the President of The Art Institute of Chicago, James Rondeau. Funny how people like him never think that the need for diversity should start at the top. pic.twitter.com/IJhzWU4UYJ
