Dozens Of Female Employees Accuse Google Of Gender Discrimination
The engineer, James Damore, wrote a memo criticizing Google for pushing mentoring and diversity programs and for "alienating conservatives". Damore shared his memo online and it went viral sparking criticism across all social media platforms. "Lots of upper management was shaming me", he revealed.
Hundreds of people have signed up for the marches since they were announced Wednesday, Posobiec said.
"I'm definitely hurt, I love Google and I've always been a fan of Google even before I joined, and so it really feels like they betrayed me in some way", Damore said in the interview. Executives fielded a variety of questions over the hourlong meeting but none of the questions were in support of Mr. Trump's victory. Damore, who has since been fired, has also said that he was considering suing Google.
Google claims, "OFCCP has not taken sufficient steps to learn how our systems work and may not have accurately understood them".
Google CEO Sundar Pichai is expected to lead the town hall with other members of the company's leadership.
YouTube CEO and Google leader Susan Wojcicki was all for canning Damore, saying, "While people may have a right to express their beliefs in public, that does not mean companies can not take action when women are subjected to comments that perpetuate negative stereotypes about them based on their gender". He graduated from the University of IL with a bachelor of science degree in 2010, then completed a master's at Harvard. Here's our previous coverage of Damore's Jerry Maguire misfire.
The episode has become a flashpoint for wider debates over sexism and political correctness, which conservatives say suppresses dissenting voices in liberal bastions like Silicon Valley.
Though one might argue for a right to free speech, however unpopular, such protections are generally limited to government and other public employees and to unionized workers with rights to disciplinary hearings before any firing. A Google spokesman disputed Damore's claim that the company's hiring practices are illegal.
Finberg (who's based in San Francisco, by the way) now says he's gearing up to file a class-action lawsuit on behalf of these women, who say they've been getting paid 25-30 percent less than their male colleagues, and have been passed over for positions reserved more often for men.
Damore's 3,3000 word manifesto claims there aren't more women in tech roles due to "biological causes" while also calling Google left-leaning with a "politically correct monoculture".
Trump Admin Aims To Target Poor Immigrants With New Bill
Weinstein said the idea that immigrant labor takes jobs from native-born workers "has been disproven for 40 or 50 years". Instead, the lack of hireable help would slow the economy, creating layoffs or lulls in hiring of better jobs.

Jon Jones Calls Stipe Miocic Bout 'Not A Real Super Fight'
Jones (23-1) completed his rocky journey back to the top after a yearlong suspension with his 14th consecutive victory. At the end of the day, it's business, and if UFC come to me with something I can't resist, then I'll make it happen".
