Sacked Google Employee Gives His First Interview Admitting More Agree Than Don't

The Google employee memo, which gained attention online over the weekend, begins by saying that only honest discussion will address a lack of equity.
In a shocking news, a group of more than 60 current and former Google employees are considering bringing a class-action lawsuit alleging sexism and pay disparities against women in the company, guardian.com reports. Others say it is hard to openly discuss diversity issues at the company because of a liberal bias among managers and colleagues at Google, a unit of AlphabetInc.
The memo, which was shared on the tech blog Gizmodo, attributes biological differences between men and women to the reason why "we don't have 50 percent representation of women in tech and leadership". In terms of disclosure, my own views tend to be socially liberal and fiscally conservative.
To that end, other US lawmakers - including powerful groups like the Congressional Black Caucus - have pressed Google and its tech industry counterparts to get them to change their hiring and management practices.
Writing in a letter to the tech giant, the four members of Congress said Damore's comments "might not reflect the views of Google as a company", but they said the "discriminatory beliefs espoused within the memo point to a problematic culture and mindset that persists within the tech industry as a whole". She added that a male employee had joined her team with a higher salary than her, despite her being his superior in the company.
One employee said he disagreed with Mr. Damore's memo, which he called "academic harassment", and supported his firing, noting "people have been fired for a lot less".
"I went to a diversity programme at Google, it was ... not recorded, totally secretive", Damore told Molyneux.
Damore claimed Google's obsession with diversity is so pervasive that "it may definitely be biasing who they do business with". She said change is hard and "often uncomfortable".
