(RepublicanInformer.com)- Apple employees are standing up to CEO Tim Cook, demanding in a letter that changes are made to the company – but it’s nothing to do with using cheap labor in China. No, it’s much more serious than that, apparently. They say Apple is not diverse enough.
In the letter, published online, the employees complain that while Apple prides itself on a commitment to “diversity” and “equity” – the latter of which is a concept that requires discrimination to be achieved – the company doesn’t live up to that standard. They state that their experience with the People team in dealing with “harassment and discrimination” has left many people more vulnerable.
Do you really think that a Big Tech company is a hub for discrimination and harassment?
The letter adds that current Apple policies on device linking and privacy mean that when people seek recourse, they risk their personal privacy being invaded. Furthermore, they state that employees seeking leave for mental and physical health problems, they are asked to provide a “broad scope” of personal medical information for a period of two years.
Isn’t it fair that Apple actually knows its employees have real medical problems, and aren’t just pretending to have depression to get time off?
The letter adds that hundreds of employees have documented their experience of “abuse, discrimination and harassment” but didn’t explain precisely how they are being “harassed.”
It just goes to show that no matter how woke you get, it will never be enough. Not until you can take time off work, whenever you want, because you told your boss you don’t feel very happy today.
And, so you understand, the idea of “device linking” refers to Apple’s policy that encourages employees to link their personal iCloud storage account to their work devices, which they claim results in Apple employees being harassed on their personal phone numbers.
Let’s be honest here…there could be a legitimate argument that requiring workers to make their personal contact information available across the company is a violation of privacy, but can they really complain when the company wants evidence that they really need time off?
