In the emails, Einfeld called her an “uppity selfish c—” and suggested that "someone should sew her vagina shut" for requesting...

    James Damore, the Google engineer that was fired for writing a memo criticizing the company’s diversity policies, said in a Thursday interview that Google employees publicly criticize people based on race and gender in meetings. “You can openly shame white people or all men [at Google], and we do this in our company-wide meetings,” Damore said. “There’s definitely a bias toward certain movements.” During the interview with the Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro, Damore claimed that Google firing him for pushing “harmful gender stereotypes” only revealed the company’s overblown emphasis on diversity, denying allegations that his memo had pushed “harmful gender stereotypes.” “They’re putting...

    If you've spent any time at a major conservative event where Fox News is in attendance, you'll see what could be considered a hooker convention. That's not to say that there aren't women who are dressed and act conservatively, but for the most part the women there look like they're for sale, and if you spend any time watching Fox News, you'll see what they're looking for. Women bleach their hair blonde because that's what the higher ups believe their viewers want to see. It appears the woman behind numerous allegations at FNC is a lebisan activist named Caroline Heldman...

The document, which is the personal opinion of one senior software engineer, was shared on a company mailing list but has since gone "internally viral," according to a Google employee who spoke with Motherboard.

    A whistleblower is making some of the same complaints against the Obama administration over its record of providing congressionally mandated payouts to nuclear workers as Barack Obama did about the George W. Bush administration's. Obama, when he was a senator in the middle of his White House bid, admonished the Bush Labor Department over complaints of bureaucratic bungling and intentional efforts to deny or drag out payouts to workers who lost their health building the nation's Cold War nuclear arsenal. [snip] Obama went on to say in the interview that he found it "deeply troubling" that the Bush administration would...

    A Wisconsin company is about to become the first in the U.S. to offer microchip implants to its employees. Yes, you read that right. Microchip implants. "It's the next thing that's inevitably going to happen, and we want to be a part of it," Three Square Market Chief Executive Officer Todd Westby said. The company designs software for break room markets that are commonly found in office complexes. Just as people are able to purchase items at the market using phones, Westby wants to do the sam thing using a microchip implanted inside a person's hand. "We'll come up, scan...

    In between shifts Monday afternoon, 13 Vermont State Police troopers, outfitted in beige and green, tentatively discussed their preferred pronouns. "Bob," said Sgt. Bob Lucas. "Uh, 'he.'" "I'm Steve. I go by 'he,'" said Trooper Steve DiGregorio, a youthful officer. "My name is Andy," said Cpl. Andy Leise, the only one who seemed at ease during the exercise. "I like to be referred to as 'he.'" Spoiler alert: All 13 were "cis" — identifying with the gender assigned to them at birth. The officers sat in mismatched swivel chairs in the windowless office of a converted warehouse that serves as...
  • Some Employers Are Rethinking Telework, Citing A Need For Better Collaboration

    07/13/2017 8:12:15 AM PDT · by posterchild · 30 replies ^ | July 11, 2017 | Yuki Noguchi
    The speed of digital technology has allowed workers to be mobile and flexible, and more employers continue to embrace remote work policies. But it has also created demand for continuous updates and real-time collaboration. And that change has driven some companies — including IBM, Best Buy and Yahoo — to recall some of their remote workforces back into the office. In the 1970s, IBM was one of the pioneers of telework, and over time, 20 percent of its employees worked remotely. Last year, it decided to recall some remote-work employees, a move that seemed to go against decades of policies...

    Why down? Although Missouri’s minimum wage is $7.70 per hour statewide, St. Louis already raised its minimum wage in 2015, with another increase to $11 per hour planned for January. After a two-year legal fight with local business groups, a bill was ultimately passed by the state legislature this spring that bars cities and counties from setting their own minimum wages above the state’s minimum. The bill takes effect on Aug. 28.
