@Subhayan Majumdar Isn't this what labor laws are for or am I missing something. This google union serves no purpose. They just want to control everything according their bubble woke ideology and push their agenda.

As many here have implied, this was never about James Damore being factually wrong or against diversity. This was about Google caving into the modern-day...social/political correctness mob. One day the mob will lose its control and sane Men and Women will look back on these events and hopefully learn from them. We can only hope...

That was NOT what the James Damore post was about. He argued that women were less likely to CHOOSE to go into coding/tech. Not they their biology made them ill suited for it. This has been backed by studies for years and can be clearly observed in the very few women choosing to study in STEM fields.

Be careful folks. Capital doesn't like ceding power. They will find ways to replace you and undercut you by off shoring your jobs. It's really easy to do now as you all know. Any how I commend your efforts. Smart, young and savvy people such as yourselves are the future of our nation. Hopefully it will be a more just and enlightened society through your efforts.

Does anyone know which part of James Damore's letter/memo The Verge is referring to, when they said he wrote "women were less biologically suited to be coders"? I haven't read it for a while, and I'm skimming through now to try to find where he stated this, but I can't seem to find this reference. I can see why someone could extrapolate this due to Damore's wording, but he never outright stated it, so it seems like either someone is overreacting, or intentionally misinterpreting what he wrote.

Unions have destroyed many companies.I use Google's products a lot, would hate to see a decrement in quality. Google should provide performance based pay that's how you bust unions. No two workers should be paid same because they aren't doing the same amount of work.

Unfortunately it won’t change anything for black workers. Unions almost never work for us. I know from first hand experience. Just look back at the history of the first union forming in the US and how they shut out black porters in Chicago who had to fight in their own just to get incremental change

If the unions actually stop Alphabet from working on the projects that it's working on, that'll lead to reduced revenue for Alphabet. . No Board will be open to reduced revenue. There's a limit to how much the union can achieve.

@FractalNoize haha...Unions gave weekends, FDR ended depression, Obama caused racial healing. These are all the things brainwashed people believe. Henry Ford did an experiment with 5 days work week at his factory very similar to how 4 days work week was started by Microsoft in Japan. Unions started demanding the same in every factory, AFTER Ford had already started it.

Some unions are now worse than the terrible companies they were created to negotiate with (like police unions fighting cities to keep them from firing an officer who shot an innocent person... a somewhat more extreme example). I feel like we need to make sure unions don’t take advantage of people the same way companies do. Newer unions are often going to start off well, but when any group of people grows large enough, combating marginalization becomes a challenge, be it a company or a union.
