Employees of Kardashian-Jenner companies notice poor working conditions

Kim Kardashiann decided to deliver a tough message to women in business. Then her employees referred to poor pay and poor conditions despite strong work ethic.

Kim Kardashian thought she was promoting Kardashians along with a strong work ethic, but in the process managed to annoy millions of people, including some former employees. Audiences often criticize the Kardashians for being out of touch with reality. From wasteful food fights, the original branding of SKIMS as Kimono, to Kendall Jenner’s infamous Pepsi adit is clear that the famous family has to step back from their ivory tower more often despite good intentions.

Kim came along Variety to spread details about her family’s new show and delivered a stern message to women in business. She told Variety, “I have the best advice for women in business, get your f ** king up and working. It seems like no one wants to work these days.” Americans exhausted by the pandemic, overwhelmingly low wages and unequal working conditions were offended by the idea that they were not working hard or that they had no good reason to be frustrated.

In general, it helps to go the extra mile employees to get ahead. However, Kim’s hard love advice seemed to misjudge how those who are already going beyond are unable to achieve economic progress and therefore leave the labor market. Kim added fuel to the fire of discontent and probably did not expect her family employees to point out how condescending and alienated she sounded.

In particular, two former employees flocked to Twitter to share their experiences working for the famous family. Jessica Defino tweeted, I was the editor of Kardashian Apps in 2015 in LA, worked days and nights, could only afford 99 Cents Only Store groceries, called “sick” more than once because I could not refuel my car for come to the office, and was reprimanded for freelance next door. “ Jessica’s situation is all too familiar, especially in Los Angeles, one of the country’s most expensive places to live. Digging into her family’s employee contracts would have been wise before Kim scolded people for not wanting to work.

In response to a post asking who wore it Keeping up with the Kardashians, Dave Mcnamee joked, “I did that when I was working on the show for 2 seasons during the peak of my alcoholism.” Production jobs are known for their 12-plus hour days and lack of benefits or leisure for freelancers trying to make ends meet, issues highlighted in the narrowly avoided IATSE strike last fall. All too often, a culture of addiction that coincides with production becomes all too normal. Dave acknowledged, however, that the show was not necessarily the root cause of his addiction in a follow-up tweet. He also jokingly apologized for once being with mother of two Kylie Jennerin his own way and revealed that he survived from the pop pies and oatmeal he stole from Kardashian’s craft services.

It was also revealed by Daily Mail that Kim’s unpaid interns did not kindly accept her comments. Leighton Mixon summed it up nicely E! NewsThe cut. He said Kim has never been accused of not working hard. He noted, however, “in the spirit of working hard, I want to tell you someone who does not do their job the day after International Women’s Day, Kim’s publicist,” Tracy Romulus. He followed up, ‘how are you going to let your client tell millions of working women that they should get off their ** without the added benefit of nanny, cooks, assistants if I were to continue … and not even get me started on Kourtney’s little’ it is’ so true ‘.’ “ For years, Kourtney’s lack of interest in traditional work has been a sensitive topic Keeping up with the Kardashians. Given Kourtney’s ability to prioritize parenting over working as an incredibly privileged attitude, she may have chosen not to sign up.

It is incredible that neither Tracy nor Kim put an end to this message. Kim’s efforts to become a lawyer and engage in a prison reform are admirable. This blunder, however, should inform her of how social problems are not isolated but part of a cross-section of overwhelming inequality. Maybe Kim can go in for a living wage for everyone on Kardashianswhich will motivate them to get their boots up for something they deserve.
