Episode 163: Bernie Marcus (Home Depot)

Grubstakers ยท Episode 163: Bernie Marcus (Home Depot)

This week we talk about DIY asshole Bernie Marcus, the man who says he built his $6.6 billion Home Depot fortune from scratch. We discuss the weird lies behind his origin story, his abuse of his workers, his illegal union busting, and the fact that he's profited off of keeping Home Depot stores open during the covid-19 pandemic. Home Depot refuses to say how many of their employees they have murdered through the decision to stay open but we know that there has been at least one. Rest in peace Johnathan Ferreira, you deserved better.
