Ex-YouTube Recruiter Sues Google For Allegedly Hiring Minorities Over Whites and Asians For 'Diversity'


A former YouTube recruiter is suing the video platform’s parent company, Google, claiming he was fired after he complained about the company’s hiring practices that he alleges purposefully discriminated against white and Asian hires.

According to USA Today, Arne Wilberg is suing Google for allegedly setting quotas for hiring minorities over qualified white and Asian candidates, saying he was fired last November for complaining that the practice was openly discriminatory and illegal.

“Wilberg also alleges that management deleted emails and other records of diversity requirements,” USA Today reported.

Google, on the other hand, says they did no such thing….well, kinda.

“We have a clear policy to hire candidates based on their merit, not their identity,” Google spokeswoman Gina Scigliano told USA Today in an email. “At the same time, we unapologetically try to find a diverse pool of qualified candidates for open roles, as this helps us hire the best people, improve our culture, and build better products.”

This is hardly the first time Google’s come under scrutiny for allegedly firing employees who complain about the company’s “diversity” practices. Last year, Google famously fired James Damore after the now-former engineering employee published a memo complaining about the company’s diversity initiatives.

Damore also complained that the company was openly hostile against conservatives.

Google, of course, immediately denied that the company discriminates against employees for their personal opinions….right before firing Damore for expressing his.

The company is also now being sued by a former female employee, who alleges rampant "bro culture" at the company that led to her being sexually harassed for years.
