The Google walkout offers a playbook for successful corporate protests

Business is not democracy. However, companies born from democracy sometimes show value, just as social networks cite social networks as the first amendment to draft policy on content modification.

Protests are not limited to democracy, of course. Nonetheless, there was an amazing democracy about today's Google strike, where thousands of Googlers walked desks to quickly isolate sexual harassment victims from their companies and demonstrate leadership issues. Many loosely connected people moved to common action and sought relief for their complaints.

And in the long term, they think they will succeed.

The root cause of today's incident is that Andy Rubin, the co-founder of the New York Times (19459008) last week, found that he received a $ 90 million redemption package despite discovering charges of sexual harassment against him. A New York blockbuster story. It was one of the sexual harassment cases discovered by the Times on September 19, 1945 .

In an immediate aftermath, Google CEO Sundar Pichai told employees that 48 people were harassed by sexual harassment. Last two years. But today's protests have been so powerful that they showed the world about violent sexual harassment and unequal treatment of women.

"There are thousands of different stories about every story in the NYT." An anonymous Google employee told BuzzFeed Caroline O & # 39; Donovan. "So many people are involved."

O'Donovan attended one of the workouts held today at Google's offices in the world, capturing a heartbreaking story about his colleagues . "I made it clear that I was in trouble," Nancy reported to HR.

She cried in the car every day before work.

"They can not talk to anyone about this issue anymore, and they have recommended treatment," Nancy said with tears. "Do not worry, keep working with this person." Despite the investigation, nothing happened. Nancy said she worked with him for three months. During that time she said that she cried in the car every day before work.

These incidents are certainly not happening only on Google. However, the company maintains high standards, and due to its high level of technology and extreme selectivity, it can have a unique impact on its employer in finding other jobs. Google employees are very smart and know that this fact is true and they have held a partial strike to encourage other workers to take responsibility for their employers as well.

As an employee said today

Stapleton, YouTube product marketing manager for Google, who helped call Claire's bankruptcy filing, said the number of employees identified was higher than expected .

"We said she said

One of the reasons is that the conversation is overflowing in both mainstream and social media. Thousands of Googlers have gone out on the streets to complain about their employers. The cut shows a list of requests from organizers of the strikers, including a list of requests from the organizers of the strikers (19459007) Dealbook Sundar Pichai CEO unfairly agreed to stand on the stage at the conference, said in an interview He said: "We are trying to do better because we have not always done right. . "

I felt a rare surge of optimism today, when Google's ripples felt like events of other times, when the power of social media seemed primarily to be used primarily to tell the truth, rather than to dismantle our reality

Does Google's homepage news feed repeat Facebook mistakes?

Dieter Bohn Google's feed launch is becoming an unstable threat in the same way as Facebook.

On weekends, social media finds out about two radical domestic terrorists, and then Google's new attempt at algorithmic news feeds is as follows. "Hello, Google reads the harassing room."

We live in an age of seeing real tragedies inspired by some form of awf. Ulness for social media everyday. We sometimes struggle to clearly define online causal relationships to these tragedies, but it is not that difficult in the last few weeks. So it's a pretty inappropriate time for Google to decide to insert another news feed in front of millions (or billions) of people. It was probably not the 19659031 time in 2018 when Google could decide to release a new news feed that would not have felt like this, but it seems to have been particularly bad this week.

How Mark Zuckerberg Failed Too Far

Farhad Manjoo says Mark Zuckerberg can be effectively responsible. Anyone:

Facebook without Zuckerberg (34) can tell us how irresponsible our biggest technology company is.
