Would you work a job as a Diversity Hire?

Would you work a $50,000 a year, $24 an hour job (or higher than whatever you make right now) as a Diversity Hire hired merely for BS "diversity and inclusion" reasons, where you're seen as pointless and valueless to the company?

To be clear, you are not hired as a skilled and talented worker who happens to be a minority. You are a Diversity Hire; a pointless, useless, talented person only hired due to being female, a different race than everyone else, queer, handicapped, or attractive looking, and nothing else. You bring nothing of value to the company, and if anything, cause more problems than help. And all your coworkers know this.

The company is a good place to work, with good people, and they actually do valuable things for society. It wouldn't be an evil corporation that actually deserves to have it's money wasted.

Regardless of your actual job skills, you CANNOT contribute anything valuable to the company, and almost everyone else around you works harder, is more knowledgeable, contributes a lot to the company, and gets paid lower than you. You are merely there to avoid company lawsuits and woke idiots attacking the CEO.

SO YOU COULD BE A DIVERSITY HIRE?
Are you fine being "objectified" by your employer in the corporate sense?

I work a job as the only native English speaker here at my English academy, and every other teacher is Korean. Although I'm valuable and the one with a Masters in English, every other teacher is fluent in Korean, so have to do things like call parents or have parent meetings sometimes. I don't have to do that, as a non-Korean. And even with that, I sometimes feel guilty and like I'm not pulling my weight. I'm constantly offering to volunteer and help the other teachers with things, so I don't feel like the weak chain. And I don't think anyone else thinks of me like that here, but still.

So I can't imagine what it's like getting paid to be useless at a job. That is humiliating. Yet I know many people would do it.

Yes, I'd be fine getting paid as a known handicap and liability to a company as a Diversity Hire.
