You should try working at the San Francisco Police Department.

Not as bad as you'd think... they'll let you lie in court, without calling you out, after murdering a guy.

If that is truly happening at your place of employment, then you should be planning your exit.

The effects of a policy like you described will lead to a long term downward trend in the health of the company.

Protect yourself and plan a graceful exit to a better company.

re: Company going out of its way to hire women
At the company I used to work for, they once sent out an email about an update to their recruitment incentive program. They were offering specific recruitment bonuses depending on the ethnicity and gender of the hire. I don't recall the exact tiers, but they definitely had categories for black, hispanic, middle eastern, women, etc...all with varying levels of compensation.

I really wish I would have saved that email.

I'd be ok with this if women didn't have to disappear for 4 months to have baby, want to work 20 hours a week and stay at home more-but complain they don't make the same amount of money. I guess I don't understand the real world. When a woman accomplishes the same thing as a guy they should get paid the same. If she's gone for several months or cuts back hours to stay home with the kids they shouldn't expect the same pay.


Do you know many women having babies every year? And most places don't offer paid leave for maternity, so they already aren't getting paid for their time away unless they had already accrued that much leave.

I don't think it even mattered. The company was enormous (300k+ employees) so you can imagine the ivory tower conversation that generated that policy.

Alabama just passed some type of equal pay law for women. I don't really know the details, but if they're getting raises that men aren't, seems like you could use a law like this to your favor

Major in engineering you feminists


My dad said this my whole life. All of his bosses were women. There’s such a demand for them to create “diversity” that if you’re a woman engineer, you had so much opportunity at his company.

Yup. My little sister majored in CIS and basically runs the Dow plant in plaquemine at 27

re: Company going out of its way to hire women
It's strictly for virtue signaling and marketing purposes. If a woman is really good at what she does, it won't take a "diversity outreach program" for her to find a job. As much as the media wants you to think otherwise, businesses aren't sexist if doing so would hurt the bottom line. No business worth a shite is going to turn down a potentially very productive and lucrative female employee simply because of her gender.

What these programs usually lead to is the hiring of completely unqualified workers that force the others to pick up the slack all in the name of diversity. And here's a secret...a lot of professional women don't like working with other women and the cattiness and competition it brings.

All big companies now, at least in oil and gas target women and minorities heavily.

HR mandated that my dad hire a Hispanic woman versus a white man whom he deemed to be much more qualified.


Isn't that racial discrimination?

re: Company going out of its way to hire women
Company i worked for, until i quit this past December, was huge in diversity, $17B company. Emails sent out weekly about it. Hired a Diveristy Leader, whatever the hell that is.
There were 4 regional managers in the US that all had a good 20 managers working under them. Those regional managers actually had monetary bonuses tied to hiring a certain number of female or minority managers each year.

My wife has been irritated with her job and i told her you need to start looking for a new job and don't worry about being qualified for it. Just find the right idiot that will hire you over the 10 other white males that will apply b/c you're a woman.
