  • Google Fire Software Engineer Over Offensive Memo

Despite Google's fervent denials of pay gap allegations, Finberg says that around 30 of the 60 women he interviewed indicated that there were distinct inequalities and prejudices that are detrimental to women working at the tech giant. This means that they make $40,000 less than a man who has the same qualifications. He claimed that women can not become as good as men in this industry because they are neurotic, which is a biological trait they have. Around half of the 60 women considering suing Google are current employees, Finberg said, adding that over a dozen women admitted that discrimination at work played a role in their leaving the firm. "Google is not alone in Silicon Valley", he said.

This all started when one of Google's software engineers, who is a man by the way, chose to leak a ten-page manifestation in which he talked about Google's pay disparities. "There's something subconsciously that happens where you do start to question the value that you're adding to the company". "After a while, it just became exhausting", she said.

"I felt like I wasn't playing the game in the "boys club" environment", another woman who worked for two years as a user experience designer and recently left Google told the Guardian. She also said that she was regularly faced with sexist remarks, such as comments about her looks. "It was really disturbing". "There are always going to be differences in salary based on location, role and performance, but the process is blind to gender", a Google spokesperson said.

The women's stories bolster the claims of United States labour department officials, who have said that a preliminary analysis found that women face "extreme" pay discrimination across the company and have recently raised concerns that Google's strict confidentiality agreements are discouraging employees from speaking up.
