Google fires an employee for breaking company rules
In a recent turn of events, CEO of Google Sundar Pichai fired an employee in the pretext of violating the company rules.
What did he do?
James Damore, the software engineer who was fired, had written a memo criticizing the company’s policies of diversity. This memo was released only internally inside the organization. It soon spread like wildfire within the company.
What did the memo contain?
James memo, named “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber”, contained matters relating to diversity, sexism and, stereotypes. James first made a few good points which even Sundar Pichai noticed. According to James, an honest discussion is what they need to solve the problems of diversity and stereotypes. As per James, Google didn’t let anyone raise voice for opinions in the diversity report.
What was the nail in the coffin?
Damore’s 10-page memo got leak inside the organization. The argument about the biological differences between men and women and the leadership positions really made Google fire James Damore.
James said that there is an unequal portrayal of men and ladies in the world’s best tech company and authority division because of their biological differences.
Pichai responded,“To suggest a group of our colleagues have traits that make them less biologically suited to that work is offensive and not OK.”
With Sunder Pichai firing an employee over a thought, he expressed publicly. A heated debate has started over Pichai doing right for firing for the anti-feminine thoughts. Pichai doing wrong by violating the freedom of expression of a person.
