the united way is nothing more than extortion for the benefit of the robber barrons that run large organizations.
i was given the choice to contribute to the united way, or other “favorite” charities of the fortune 5 company i worked for.
one of the choices was NOT to not contribute.
they are corrupt. follow the money on those “automatic” deductions, you’ll be shocked where it ends up. try to make a choice of NOT contributing, you’ll get your bleeep fired, or end your possibilities of advancement within the company.
my religion doesn’t consider it ‘charity’ if anyone knows about it. automatic deductions are, by definition, not charity because they are not anonomous.
