She should of been given a hero’s welcome, but instead she got the boot from here job at Akima.

In about Akima

Akima ensures non-discrimination in all programs and activities in accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

More Bullshit. This company which is now essentially another I.T. Beltway Bandit is a disgrace. They stood up for money over common sense, money over fair employee treatment and justice, and money over decency. Too bad my tax dollars funds their ilk.

And hypocrisy and favoritism do not escape them either.

She identifies herself as an Akima employee on her LinkedIn account but makes no mention of the middle-finger photo there.

Wait. It gets even more obscene.

Because Briskman was in charge of the firm’s social-media presence during her six-month tenure there, she recently flagged something that did link her company to some pretty ugly stuff.

As she was monitoring Facebook this summer, she found a public comment by a senior director at the company in an otherwise civil discussion by one of his employees about the Black Lives Matter movement.

“You’re a f—— Libtard a——,” the director injected, using his profile that clearly and repeatedly identifies himself as an employee of the firm.

In fact, the person he aimed that comment at was so offended by the intrusion into the conversation and the coarse nature of it that he challenged the director on representing Akima that way.

So Briskman flagged the exchange to senior management.

Did the man, a middle-aged executive who had been with the company for seven years, get the old “Section 4.3” boot?

Nope. He cleaned up the comment, spit-shined his public profile and kept on trucking at work.

But the single mother of two teens who made an impulsive gesture while on her bike on her day off?

Adios, amiga.

Well she was not at work and not using company’ assets. She was on her day off. She was exercising her 1st amendment rights. Or does one surrender their 1st amendment rights to work for Akima?
