Google and it’s continuing ‘discrimination’ issues

Even with Google’s current dispute with the U.S. Department of Labor, about which an agency official testified/described as “systemic compensation disparities against women pretty much across the entire workforce; and another DOL official told The Guardian that “compelling evidence of very significant discrimination against women in the most common positions at Google headquarters” had been discovered; apparently some men at Google feel like they are the ones being discriminated against.  :-/

As per Louise Matsakis via Motherboard writes, “The document said that improving racial and gender diversity is less important than making sure conservatives feel comfortable expressing themselves at work.”

Seriously??!!  So consideration for ‘conservatives’ is more important that consideration for other races and genders.  O_O

Wow.

So even though the writer of this piece was not initially revealed, it’s obvious from the start that he is a Caucasian man.  And he’s been feeling slighted.  Welcome to our world.

Some internal Google employee reactions to the internal memo, “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber:  How bias clouds our thinking about diversity and inclusion“:

Millennials are People

Wow. 

What’s with the increase in millennial bashing lately?

It’s couched in supposed humor, but it’s hateful just the same.

And what’s truly ironic, to me anyway, is that half of these people who criticize millennials for things like, ‘not having real jobs’ and ‘wanting to gain fame and fortune for their actions on social media outlets’, are doing just that themselves?!?!

W? T? F?

How about we ALL just stop the hate. 

It’s getting just a bit soul crushing.

Find something positive to do with your lives.
