"Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" is actually a cautionary tale about workplace discrimination:

@Ferretsyndicate He's got Santa behind the eight ball here; he should force Santa to sign off on a new agreement with better treatment of labor, co-determination, etc.

@RexfordGTugwell

Exactly. The boss learns that he needs the workers more than they need him.

@Ferretsyndicate In fairness, Santa does play something of a hybrid role, in that he does do labor: handles the naughty/nice lists, does final physical delivery of presents, etc. But inasmuch as he runs the workshop, he's clearly in a managerial role as well.

@Ferretsyndicate Rudolph stuff always reminds me of Alan Turing. Loved when he was "useful" for WWII and shunned because he was gay otherwise.

@Ferretsyndicate not just workplace discrimination but diacrimination in general....

@Ferretsyndicate I always thought it was Rudolph the red nosed reindeer because he was a kiss away from joining up with the elves to overthrow Santa and form a workers' collective
