So much for diversity and empowerment, according to those who have filed a massive lawsuit against Google and it's parent company, Alphabet Inc.

The lawsuit claims that Google, who has a severe track record of refusing to disprove such claims against them, intentionally grants female employees dead-end positions with lower wages.

Earlier this the United States Labor Department accused Google of “systematically discriminating against women” in their workplace, where the DOL said it had evidence of “systemic compensation disparities”.

We found systemic compensation disparities against women pretty much across the entire workforce,” Janette Wipper, a DoL regional director, testified in court in San Francisco.

Janet Herold, who is the Regional Solicitor for the Department of Labor, said, “The investigation is not complete, but at this point the department has received compelling evidence of very significant discrimination against women in the most common positions at Google headquarters.”

Herold added, “The government’s analysis at this point indicates that discrimination against women in Google is quite extreme, even in this industry.”

filed their own lawsuit against Google back in January, where the process has been long and drawn out due to Google’s endless financial resources.

Google tried using the excuse in Federal Courts that it would “have to spend up to $100,000 and 500 hours of work” to comply with investigators demands for data, that so far Google has refused to hand over.

That's a complete and utter joke, considering Google is one of the most profitable companies on the planet with a $28 billion annual income.

Department of Labor attorney Ian Eliasoph mocked the company’s defense, saying, “Google would be able to absorb the cost as easy as a dry kitchen sponge could absorb a single drop of water.”

The newest complaint however was filed Thursday on behalf of all women employed by Google and Alphabet inside of California over a period of last four years, provided the most detailed personal testimonies to date of gender discrimination and pay disparities at the company after months of criticism.

Kelly Ellis, a former Google employee and a lead plaintiff in the case said, “We’ve been talking about these issues for a long time, and it hasn’t really changed.”

She went on, “There’s been a lot of PR and lip service, but; this is going to be one of the only ways to get these companies to change how they hire and compensate women.”

Ellis says that when she was hired back in 2010 as a Software Engineer for Google Photos, the company then placed her into a “Level 3” position.

What that role is, according to Ellis, is one that is typically assigned to new college graduates, and Google uses this to keep women held back, according to the suit.

After positioning her as a female in that dead-end role, Ellis says that only a few weeks after Google hired a male Software Engineer , who graduated the same year as her, into a “Level 4” position on her same team, the complaint said.

Level 4 engineers “receive substantially higher salary and opportunities for bonuses, raises, and equity”, her lawyers wrote.

The newest class-action complaint, filed in San Francisco, includes three specific plaintiffs including Ellis who have offered their own personal horror stories of Google “assigning and keeping female employees in lower compensation levels than male employees with similar skills, experience, and duties”.

Keep in mind Google recently fired a Software Engineer over his opinions, which is also leading to massive controversy and a lawsuit in what's been known as the Google Manifesto case.

Since Google has thus far refused to handover salary records, and more women are beginning to come forward, amidst the already controversial company who's been in the headlines for its consistent bias and censorship, it looks like the Monopoly known as Google may be heading in the direction of the 1990s Microsoft.

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

One can only hope, as it's become clear the company is far too powerful and using its influence to affect both our lives with public perception and politics through lobbying and slanted media.

The giant known as Google is a serious threat at this point to our sovereignty.

Best of luck to these women.
