Over Half of Google's Employees Think James Damore Shouldn't Have Been Fired

It is how Google's diversity and Bias Training will Resemble like

In response to the screed by former engineer James Damore - which attributed a lack of women in tech to "personality differences between genders" - lawmakers on Capitol Hill are slamming Google and its peers for failing manifestly to recruit, retain and protect workers of diverse backgrounds.

The fired Google employee has defended his memo and said he is "not a sexist" in interviews with two YouTube channels. They're held regularly with employees and executives.

Google's leadership told its employees that Damore crossed a line and advanced harmful stereotypes, according to an email seen by Reuters.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai said that the memo was "not ok", though Damore, 28, now says that his firing for his views was illegal.

"A class-action gender discrimination suit would build on a case brought by the US Department of Labour (DoL), which is arguing that Google systematically underpays women and recently convinced a judge to force the company to hand over a portion of the company's salary records", the report noted. One question asks how Google will protect female employees who have been harassed online for criticizing the memo.

In his memo, he said among other things women are unsuited to be good engineers because they're more interested in people than ideas.

In other words, Google and its nonprofit allies are fighting efforts to amend a law to crack down on human trafficking because they say it would inhibit free speech, yet when one of Google's employees says something true yet outside the bounds of liberals' comfort zone, he is immediately fired. But he added that "we strongly support the right of Googlers to express themselves, and much of what was in that memo is fair to debate, regardless of whether a vast majority of Googlers disagree with it". Google said in June that 69% of its staff were men, 56% were white and 35% were Asian.

Damore has already filed a charge with the National Labor Relations Board- and spoke on Bloomberg television defending himself- saying he feels hurt and betrayed by Google- that he was trying to improve Google's culture. She said change is hard and "often uncomfortable". Alphabet Chief Financial Officer Ruth Porat, who publicly supported Hillary Clinton, called the election results "a kick in the gut".
