Google prides itself on being a “forward thinking” company. Which is a nice way of saying they adhere to every brainfart that emerges from from leftists’ pea-sized craniums. Appearances can be deceiving. A former employee just filed a lawsuit against Google for paying female employees less than their male counterparts.
A former Google employee claims the tech giant has been paying women who work in the company’s child day care center far less than their male counterparts — even though they have more experience.
Heidi Lamar, 31, filed a complaint this week in San Francisco alleging that she and countless others had been granted lower starting salaries than at least two men in the same position, the Guardian reports.
Yikes, that’s not good. Especially considering how the ladies outnumber the men in child care positions.
Google employed roughly 147 women and three men as preschool teachers from 2013 to 2017, according to Lamar.
During that time, she says nearly all of the female teachers were paid less than at least two of the males.
Um. I’m not a math expert, but these seems, to use the leftist term, “problematic.”
“I didn’t want to work for a company that I can’t trust, that makes me feel like my values of gender equality are being compromised,” Lamar told the Guardian, explaining why she quit in 2017 and eventually filed the complaint.
I thought Google is supposed to on the frontlines of progressivism? What with firing employees for having the audacity to say men and women have differences and all. Yet, here they are doing their part to keep the largely fictitious wage gap alive.
I’m sure Google has a good excuse for not paying these ladies adequately. Mayhaps they blew all their money suppressing free speech. Sponsoring pro-abortion rallies. Cracking down on conservative news outlets.
This is leftist hypocrisy at its finest, folks. Companies like Google put on a show and chastise anyone else who doesn’t meet their impossible standards. Yet, when it comes to their bottom line? They’re perfectly happy to run their business like an episode of Mad Men.
Speaking of the wage gap:
