      What are you talking about, so many higher level execs are accused of sexual misconduct

      Neat. They aren't slaves. Call the police if its something illegal like rape or actual legitimate sexual assault. Otherwise say no and don't do it. Not exactly complicated.

      You really don’t understand sexual assault. Many are afraid to call the police for fear of destroying their careers. All sexual harassment doesn’t involve a man in a mask in a dark alley. You are such an ill informed fool.

      What is wrong with standing up for what you believe in? So many insecure little men on this thread.

      It’s called we’re adults with responsibilities i.e. showing up at work. Throwing a temper tantrum like a little immature child like this walk out is is typical of sjw liberals.

      “SJW Liberals” seriously? This has been going on for years. A peaceful walk out isn’t abandoning responsibilities. It’s saying enough is enough. Everyone deserves to work in a harassment free work environment.

      Wow we have some really insecure bootlickers in this thread. “Real adults don’t challenge power and just listen to their masters”

      There's no challenging going on here, just whiny pissing and hashtag activism.

      Historically collective action is the only tool labor has to force institutional change. The astronomical cost of a labor stoppage by a significantly large group of engineers should scare these tech companies shitless.

      If you don't like company culture, start a new company with a better one and compete for better working conditions. There are apparently enough people who are like-minded, it shouldn't be too difficult to demonstrate the superiority of your ideas in the marketplace.

    So much insecurity in the world. People don’t like harassers, what’s so surprising about that?

    If Google says this is violation of their employment contract and puts their job at risk, how many of them will do so?

      I'm pretty sure most contracts are "at will" employment anyway.

      So are the news articles wrong? Several reputable news sources have reported on this.

      It's not a real walkout. It's the toothless liberal version of radicalism. Production is not going to be affected in any real way just because people decide to take an afternoon off for a "rally."

      It's a feel good exercise. Liberals like to be angry and yell but have no understanding of history and actual struggle. Instead, they are organizing some feel good downtime using electronic devices made by women in China who kill themselves because of way worse conditions.

      It's bullshit.

      For the record, I'm not a conservative. I'm an anarchist (https://www.britannica.com/topic/anarchism).

    Why do not tech workers fight for human rights and workers rights such as job security and psychologically safe work place?

    Gogole employees were so dumb, all they really got was the promise that management would be more transparent in the future. Not that anything will stop, you’ll just know of it sooner next time

    Suppression and bullying by Indians is equally bad if not worse than sexual harassment. They donot know how to respect people who they donot need to kiss up to.
