Google Chickens Out Of Employee Meeting

https://www.recode.net/2017/8/10/16128380/google-cancels-all-hands-meeting-controversy-memo

Apparently, people (on both sides, apparently) were concerned that, if they asked a question at the meeting, they would be outed on the Internet.

Comprehension limitation -- they didn't have the meeting.

The CEO should have finished his vacation. He is not thinking straight.

Imo, Google firing of Damore earlier this week for violating Google’s Code of Conduct is a complete joke.

Earlier this year, Google was accused by the US Department of Labor (DoL) of “systemic compensation disparities”. Currently, more than 60 current and former employees are considering bringing a class-action lawsuit alleging sexism and pay disparities against women. Finally, this company has also been sued (and lost) for "age bias" hiring practices.

If they're being sued for sex discrimination, doesn't that force them to fire someone who says something negative about women?  I.e., not firing him would be evidence in that lawsuit.

So businesses are forced to hire and promote a certain number of women and minorities?  Otherwise, they'll lose a discrimination lawsuit.  It becomes a quota system.

If his post didn't get plastered all over the Internet, he probably wouldn't have been fired.

I disagree. The liberal/SJWs at Google would have demanded that he be fired.

The reality is that Google is no different from any other large corporation in that it "talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk". In other words, what they do doesn’t agree with what they say - OR - the company does not practice what it allows many of employees to openly preach.

+1.  The problem is so many companies pussy out when it comes to these SJW idiots pandering, they are so afraid of the internet backlash because some Tumblr SJW calls them out for being racist/sexist/etc for some reason, that they just kowtow to these morons and make them feel like they are making a difference.

The whole SJW movement is a cancer that needs to be wiped out.

"The whole SJW movement is a cancer that needs to be wiped out."

LOL. "SJW" is the future. Much like abolitionists or democrats were the future in the XIXth century. You are on the losing side and are losing ground, that's why you're kicking up such a fuss.

Do you even realize that it was the Republicans that were on the abolitionists side??

Islam is the future. I doubt there's any room for SJW's under Sharia law...

"Google Chickens Out Of Employee Meeting"

I am glad to hear this. I do not know whose idea it was to bring chickens to the meeting in the first place, but obviously they don't belong at a meeting and would simply be disruptive.

SJW and misgonist are in the minority.

Most are supportive of women rights.

Nah. Islam is where Christianity was 500 years ago. They'll grow up.
