Google Staff stage walkout?

Can't find a thread on this here
https://www.independent.ie/world-new...-37481348.html


"Google employees to walk out in protest at treatment of women"



This is the latest in the long long line of stupid milennial BS "protests". I hope all of those snowflakes that walk off the job today get subjected to disciplinary process.


Opinions?

My opinion is i think its horribly ironic that you are complaining about others being snowflakes while getting so bizzarely worked up and annoyed about something that has zero affect on you.

I didn’t read the OP as getting worked up at all? Annoying, yeah, and I can understand why, but let’s not go exaggerating like a couple of Google employees

Whats the reason for this claim,

From the article its
"women are also becoming fed up with the male-dominated composition of the technology industry’s workforce — an imbalance that critics say fosters unsavoury behaviour."

You live in a male dominated world of IT.

In my software course 32males to 2 females(6 years ago)
So how would I expect my Software job to have 15 males & 15 females when females arent studying in the Ducking area.
Yes I said Ducking

So you've reached a conclusion about how a company does or does not treat their staff without knowing anything about it?

How exactly have you managed that?

Also, you call them snowflakes yet you're getting outraged and very offended at them doing something which has absolutely nothing to do with you?

Have a day off, OP.

And the 'unsavoury behaviour' bit?

I just think it's mental that people can form an opinion on this when they haven't seen or experienced what goes on in this particular scenario.

Where is the OP getting outraged and very offended?

Am I sounding outraged and very offended now because I asked that question?

Exactly. That is exactly how stupid it sounds.

Nope, they're just snowflakes getting offended over nothing.

That's because some people here are stuck in the stone ages and don't believe they should be allowed call for better treatment or equality.

That unfortunately is pretty poor reporting by the Indo

That quote is not why the staff are walking out. The quote is added to the article and starts with "In Silicon Valley...." - it is not a quote from Google staff

Here is some further info form other reports this morning. This walk out is about Google and how it treats staff - it has nothing to do with protesting about "being in a male-dominated workplace"

Quote:
Employees are demanding several key changes in how sexual misconduct allegations are dealt with at the firm, including a call to end forced arbitration, a move which would make it possible for victims to sue.
Quote:
It was reported last week that Google had fired 48 employees in the past two years, including 13 senior executives, as a result of sexual harassment allegations.

The company issued a statement in response to a New York Times report detailing allegations of sexual misconduct against the creator of Google's Android software, Andy Rubin.

Mr Rubin, who denies the allegations, received a €90m severance package in 2014, even though Google thought the allegations were credible.

Exactly. That is exactly how stupid it sounds.
The OP described it as 'stupid millennial BS', called them 'snowflakes' and hoped that they'd be on the recieving end of 'disciplinary action' in a situation the OP knows absolutely f*ck all about.

Yeah, I would say that's getting outraged. Some could call the OP a 'snowflake'.

Nobody in this thread knows anything about what's going on in this scenario but have formed an opinion on it calling it all bull****.

Well you opening statement calls them names and then goes on to you asking for them to be punished.

So evidently you are annoyed.

It's not really rocket science it's the English language that you deployed.
