... I wanted to ask for a raise but my agency recommended against it, saying that Google could just replace me. TVCs work hard to support Googlers and Google. Google should be ashamed they are treated so poorly.

We need to change the way the system works, above and beyond addressing the wrongs of those who work within the system. It is time for oversight, accountability, and for workers to truly have a say in decisions that affect their lives and the world around them.

The lawsuits detail this behavior in action, & the past year provided many examples of the human collateral damage of such self-serving and unaccountable leadership. This needs to change. Those most at risk must be given a voice in decision making, & a seat at the table.

The problems we face aren’t limited to coverups & an abdication of fiduciary duty. Google’s culture of racism, discrimination, & sexual harassment is not the result of a few individual bad actors — it’s built into how the system works, & won’t be fixed without structural change.

...abdicated their fiduciary duty to Google as a whole and weakened the company by driving away qualified employees. We agree. Anyone who enables abuse, harassment and discrimination must be held accountable, and those with the most power have the most to account for.
