A Google employee’s “anti-diversity” memo has sparked a national debate over gender equality in the American workforce.
As part of 10-page list of grievances and suggestions, the anonymous author argues that biologically differences between men and women, not sexism, may explain why tech companies don’t have an equal number of women in tech and leadership roles! He also argues that men are more concerned with status at the workplace and are therefore driven to climb the corporate ladder!
The author hasn’t come forward yet, but maybe it’s because he also complained the ‘left-leaning’ corporate culture would never allow these ideas to be discussed publicly!
Here’s one sample:
Men’s higher drive for status
We always ask why we don’t see women in top leadership positions, but we never ask why we see so many men in these jobs. These positions often require long, stressful hours that may not be worth it if you want a balanced and fulfilling life.
Status is the primary metric that men are judged on, pushing many men into these higher paying, less satisfying jobs for the status that they entail. Note, the same forces that lead men into high pay/high stress jobs in tech and leadership cause men to take undesirable and dangerous jobs like coal mining, garbage collection, and firefighting, and suffer 93% of work-related deaths.
