Tech groups slam Trump’s diversity training executive order

 

Several leading technology trade associations are pressing the Trump administration to rescind an executive order that, along with subsequent memos and guidance, has put diversity and inclusion training at federal agencies on pause.

The order extends to companies doing business with the government. “Federal contractors will not be permitted to inculcate such views in their employees,” the order states.

BRITISH Airways (BA) passengers have been left fuming after forking out thousands of pounds for first and business class tickets, only to be served “disappointing” sandwiches for their inflight meals.

Disgruntled customers say the airline blamed new Covid-19 regulations for the “embarrassing” snacks, which they believe are the result of “cost cutting”.

Among those to complain was Rafal Smaszcz, 42, who flew from London Heathrow to Frankfurt on a £520 flight on 18 September.

He shared a photo of his “greasy” sandwich served in a crumpled paper bag on Twitter and said: “We all know about Covid and certain restrictions, but if you charge for business class ticket same as before lockdown do you really think that this can be acceptable to serve as a business class meal?”
