Fired Engineer: Google Smeared, 'Shamed Me'

It all started when civil rights attorney James Finberg blasted out a question over social media, asking female Google employees if they felt they were being paid as much as their male counterparts.

In an effort to retain the public face of "diversity", Google just fired a guy for daring to say women just might be made differently than men, thus explaining so-called gender gaps in tech employment. "It is contrary to our basic values and our Code of Conduct, which expects 'each Googler to do their utmost to create a workplace culture that is free of harassment, intimidation, bias and unlawful discrimination, '" he continued. "So it really feels like they betrayed me in some way". With tens of thousands of female employees, if Google loses this suit it could get very expensive for the company. The author had a right to express their views on those topics-we encourage an environment in which people can do this and it remains our policy to not take action against anyone for prompting these discussions.

You can't win for losing, these days. "They just punished me and shamed me for doing it".

James Damore, the Google engineer who was sacked this week after a 10-page anti-diversity memo he wrote went viral, says he feels "betrayed" by his former employer and that upper management used him to "have a very clear signal that what I did was harmful and wrong and didn't stand for Google". Damore cites a Fortune column from the head of Google's YouTube, Susan Wojcicki, as one example.


The Twitter hashtag #JamesDamore was drawing a storm of opinions both attacking Damore for his memo and his qualifications as an engineer, and criticizing Google for his dismissal.

"I think that that's a false analogy", Damore said.

Damore told Bloomberg that he published the memo about a month ago, but that it only gained traction in the past week, when parts of it were published by various news outlets.

Our decision to post the interview does not indicate that ChannelE2E aligns with Damore and the host. "Basically treating people differently based on their race or gender".
