Score one for Google employees with male appendages!

According to an article in the New York Times, the Silicon Valley tech giant recently moved to address ‘wage inequity’ within their organization. The result of their highly-modern forensic investigation into the matter found that more men than women were receiving less money for doing similar work.

From The New York Times:

The surprising conclusion to the latest version of the annual study contrasted sharply with the experience of women working in Silicon Valley and in many other industries.

In response to the finding, Google gave $9.7 million in additional compensation to 10,677 employees for this year. Men account for about 69 percent of the company’s work force, but they received a disproportionately higher percentage of the money. The exact number of men who got raises is unclear.

In conclusion, blah-ha-ha!!

And now a word from Hammer and Nigel on the matter, accessible by clicking on the link below.
