Google underpays men ($900 less per men)

Google beep..

After Google pored over its payroll to analyze its gender gap, it came to a surprising conclusion: it was underpaying men.

The results led to Google paying out $9.7 million in additional compensation to 10,677 people — about $900 each less on men.

Now I am happy.

    I don’t think this necessary means good thing. It could be due to they keep women at a level longer. There is no real limit in a level’s cap pay. This means the women could continue to get annual raise while staying at the same level, whereas the men move on to the next level

    Google is a hypocritical company that doesn’t know the basic definition of what equity means. They tried to overcompensate for a problem that never existed (wage equity), and instead created the very same problem they were trying to solve. This is peak idiocy.

      I didn’t mean to single out Google. This problem of finding sexism in everything is prevalent in the entire tech industry including Facebook and Google is currently leading that movement

      Still, it’s better to find sexism ‘in everything’, than totally ignore it..🤷🏻‍♂️

    Incorrect. That heading is clickbait. One specific level had some men being paid less. And it was found and corrected. Overall, there still may be a big problem with women being under leveled. https://www.wired.com/story/men-google-paid-less-than-women-not-really/
