Various Marxist-Communist influences appear to be gripping America’s so-called blue chip companies.
A growing number of their employees are refusing to do previously accepted extra work, trying to secure higher pay without much effort, a report reveals. It notes some of the firms are already looking into shifting employment to other countries.
Communists Demoralizing American Workers
For decades, “blue chip firms” has referred to the most reputable and valuable companies in the US economy, which have also been desired employers by white-collar workers.
That well-established reality may no longer be the case. More and more employees seem to be influenced by Marxist-Communist videos on TikTok, the social media platform run by Communist China.
A Wall Street Journal report cited by The Daily Mail emphasizes comments from employees of respected firms “illustrate waning ambition” and “reordered priorities.”
The trend is so significant that blue chip companies are seeing workers “en masse” demanding “pay raises” while refusing to work extra time or on weekends.
The WSJ notes the employees in question are “actively” and increasingly “drawing a line” between their personal lives and work.
India and Canada are mentioned as the primary foreign beneficiaries of the communist effort to kill American workers’ desire to work – typically through TikTok video “movements” with names such as “Act Your Wage.”
This new outsourcing trend for high-paying American jobs caused by the artificially induced slumping work ethic comes at a time when a potentially deep, protracted recession is knocking on the door of the US economy.

Fire them. Cut management bloat. Outsource HR. Hire scrappy people and train them.

‘This Lack of Passion’
The report features profiles of several blue-chip company employees who have bought into the communist movement, eroding ambition and crushing company efficiency.
One of those heavily influenced by TikTok clips is 43-year-old Mary Waisanen, a structural engineering technician based in Virginia Beach.
Waisanen revealed during the coronavirus pandemic lockdowns, she began watching videos on TikTok about a “healthy work-life balance.”
She said she used to agree to work overtime and make additional money. However, after getting hooked on the videos billed as “self-help,” Waisanen decided she could live comfortably enough without working the extra hours.
The engineering technician also said she recently demanded a manager review her salary, whereas she previously would make no such effort whatsoever. As a result, she was granted a 12.5% raise as of the start of 2023.
The report cites the results of a new survey by Prudential, which found almost half of 4,796 respondents declared they do just the “bare minimum” at their jobs.
Another person interviewed by the paper, personal accountant Austin Wiggins, 23, stated he had no aspiration whatsoever to reach the executive position at his “posh job.” He said he wanted to retire by the age of 40 and then become a college professor.
Sumithra Jagannath, the president of Ohio-based firm ZED Digital, revealed to the paper “this lack of passion” already “forced her” to shift 20 engineering and marketing jobs to India and Canada.
She emphasized in these countries, it was “easier” to hire workers eager to work with passion and diligence.
