The popular CAVA food chain boasted about decreasing the number of white people it employs by nearly 20 percent in 2020.
The numbers come from CAVA’s Instagram post entitled the “year in review,” with the fifth slide focusing on how “diversity matters” to the restaurant.
“We’ve made strides to make CAVA a diverse, inclusive workplace and remain committed to expanding on the following” the restaurant chain adds before celebrating statistics that reveal increases in employment for “Black, Asian, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific, and Other.”
Also posted on CAVA’s Facebook, the company brags about similar employment trends for its Maryland-based headquarters. The restaurant’s share of white people composing its “HQ Team” fell from 69 percent white in 2019 to 67 percent in 2020.
Users on Twitter mocked the company’s decision to brag about decreasing its employment of white Americans, noting the progressive company’s bizarre interpretation of “progress.”
When no whites work at CAVA, I guess there will be a great deal of social justice.
