Yea, yea, yea. I don't see y'all putting up threads when people get fired or harassed for being LGBT. Don't whine like a little snowflake when the tables are turned.

Fix it for EVERYONE including stated legal protections for LGBT persons or fix it for no one.
Hateful. No one should harrassed. Don't be full of hate for people different than you.

I'd like to fix it for everyone, but I'm not going to listen to proposals to have white Republicans be protected while LGBT people are not. Shere, do you support the Employment Non-Discrimination Act? Should private businesses and government contractors be able to discriminate in hiring and employment based upon sexual orientation?

Especially since Damore's defenders are those who largely and usually STRONGLY support the legality of that very same harassment and disceimination, when it is used to attack LGBT persons.

RE: James Damore Suing google
A lot of Silicon Valley start-ups seem to be homogeneous places where you get a lot of smart techies together who can be very difficult to work with. In that kind of tight-knit environment you can keep things together with a strong leader like Bezos, but as you expand it's very difficult to avoid groupthink where only one style of thinking is tolerated and culture fit becomes a pre-requisite. People who don't fit in stick out like sore thumbs and find their way out pretty quickly, hence the extreme turnover. There's always been a dark undertone to a lot of these companies, I wish this guy luck just for the sake of exposing cult-like corporate practices.

Employment at will people.

It's not just about his firing. He was harassed and threatened with physical violence for wrong think.

Again, you don't seem to have a problem with it when its "Christians" and homophobes doing it to LGBT persons.

Horse **** accusation against Kronke tom.. Back it up with facts now polease.

Mods -> This is making it "about the poster"

My aunt lives in Seattle and works in HR, the running joke when you come across an ex-Amazon corporate employee is to ask them "which refugee camp you come from?" to which they respond with their former department. It's the kind of thing where most people work for two years and use the big name on their resume to get into whatever you actually want to do.

Yea they have the "You work for us, it's an honor" type attitude. I worked for one of their main competitors and they were awesome. We had a couple of folks who had experience with Amazon, who left at the first chance they got.

Exactly what happened, has Amazon on resume, got a really good job paying less but living in a better place.

Sounds like Waste Management in Houston. Had a headhunter right off the bat say, "Well this department isn't quite as bad as the rest."
