216 Simon & Schuster employees, which make up around 14% of the companies entire workforce, and over 3,500 outside supporters submitted a petition on Monday to senior executives asking the company to stop publishing books from figures linked to the Trump administration. This includes former Vice President Mike Pence, who has a memoir set to be published by 2023.
The petition asks the company not to treat “the Trump administration as a ‘normal’ chapter in American history," It continues by saying: “When S&S chose to sign Mike Pence, we broke the public’s trust in our editorial process, and blatantly contradicted previous public claims in support of Black and other lives made vulnerable by structural oppression,"
