#1 Unfortunately, there's little new to be found here. Welcome to Affirmative Action.

#7 Is Reverse Discrimination legal or not? This could be a landmark case if someone sues. I bet their are lawyers ready to go.

#8 CA already has an unconstitutional discriminatory law requiring big corps to have a token woman (or more than one) on the Corp hoard. Forget the fact they should be qualified, and most already there are....

#9 Worked there for decades. This is nothing new. OTOH, at least the ones they kept were competent in the recent cycles. Not mentioned is the age discrimination component of the cyclical layoffs, which is present in all the Big Oils, probably necessary for corporate good long term, but still unfair to those purged. (Sort of like the military 'up or out' policy.)

#10 Very much so, out of the four people with my last job in the world, they kept the 22 year old girl who was the least qualified, and the office suck up. Laid off one married white guy and me, white guy with kids, with the most time with the company.

#11 What's even funnier, is they laid off the two guys who had the most time in the field with this new automation software they are just bringing to market.

#12 Sounds like HR was making the decisions. Often they live in an ivory tower and view the employees as interchangeable production units.

#13 Time to self-identify as a gay black Islamic woman.

#16 HR people come out of liberal arts, not STEM.

The push now is not STEM, but STEAM.

Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mechanics.

#17 And most of STEM is racist,so it should be dropped, or modified so it isn't racist.

#18 STEAM - Liberal Arts trying to tap into that sweet sweet $ dedicated to productive employable fields

#19 Evidently HR sneaked in "fluency in Eubonics" as a condition of employment.
