    Revealed: Google illegally underpaid thousands of workers across dozens of countries

    Google has been illegally underpaying thousands of temporary workers in dozens of countries and delayed correcting the pay rates for more than two years as it attempted to cover up the problem, the Guardian can reveal.

    Google executives have been aware since at least May 2019 that the company was failing to comply with local laws in the UK, Europe and Asia that mandate temporary workers be paid equal rates to full-time employees performing similar work, internal Google documents and emails reviewed by the Guardian show.

    But rather than immediately correct the errors, the company dragged its feet for more than two years, the documents show, citing concern about the increased cost to departments that rely heavily on temporary workers, potential exposure to legal claims, and fear of negative press attention.

    Google executives and attorneys at one point pursued a plan to come into compliance slowly and at the least possible cost to itself, despite acknowledging that such a move was not “the correct outcome from a compliance perspective” and could place the staffing companies it contracts with “in a difficult position, legally and ethically”.

    We may, someday soon, look back with puzzlement at the time in which Americans believed their country was so innately superior, so ordained with special virtue — so exceptional — that it was their right and responsibility to dictate affairs overseas.

    There have been indications for years that belief in American exceptionalism is declining. Now, the latest report from a four-year study by the Eurasia Group Foundation, tracking American attitudes on foreign policy matters, suggests that exceptionalism could end outright — and, with it, perhaps even the era of America as global crusader.

    https://messaging-custom-newsletters.nytimes.com/template/oakv2?campaign_id=30&emc=edit_int_20211001&instance_id=41704&nl=the-interpreter&productCode=INT&regi_id=71842736&segment_id=70378&te=1&uri=nyt%3A%2F%2Fnewsletter%2Ffa3429d7-83a4-55c7-a7ee-71804979960a&user_id=ee0c2036d32104bf86e0a5dba045693a

    Has neo-Orientalism killed our ability to sense the limits of Western influence? The failure of Afghanistan should open our eyes to the fact that we don’t really know other countries and cultures at all.

    In the run-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, then British Prime Minister Tony Blair expressed his conviction that the people of Iraq would welcome “liberation” by the United States and Britain. He refused to listen to warnings that Britain’s imperial record in Iraq would in fact lead them to regard British military intervention with instinctive distrust and hostility.

    Yet Blair was also the first British prime minister to apologize in public for the crimes of the British empire. As with Western liberal internationalists in general, this acknowledgement of past national sins did not qualify in any way Blair’s assumption of the right to lecture other nations on their sins, tell them how they should be governed, and invade them in the name of building democracy. This combination of attitudes is inexplicable in rational terms — but makes perfect sense as a manifestation of secular religion. In a religious context, how often have loud public confessions of personal sinfulness provided the justification for ferocious condemnation of the sins of others?

    This combination is to be found in those American liberal internationalists who have acknowledged and apologized for systematic American support for savage Middle Eastern dictatorships — only to demand that people in the Middle East trust their promises that this time, a U.S. administration is really, truly sincere about bringing democracy to the region. Why on earth, on the basis of all past evidence, should any Arab or Iranian trust such promises? Indeed, on the basis of their past record, would you buy a used car from these drummers for democracy?

    Blair’s combination of ideological fanaticism and the total historical illiteracy on which it depends was starkly revealed in his July 2003 speech to the U.S. Congress justifying the invasion of Iraq:

    “Ours are not Western values. They are the universal values of the human spirit and anywhere, any time, ordinary people are given the chance to choose, the choice is the same. Freedom not tyranny. Democracy not dictatorship.”

    This belief permeated the rhetoric of the Bush administration after 9/11, the U.S. National Security Strategy of 2002, and the “Freedom Agenda” for the Middle East. In the words of that NSS:

    “The great struggles of the twentieth century between liberty and totalitarianism ended with a decisive victory for the forces of freedom – and a single sustainable model for national success: freedom, democracy and free enterprise…People everywhere want to be able to speak freely; choose who will govern them; worship as they please; educate their children – male and female; own property; and enjoy the benefits of their labor. These values of freedom are right and true for every person, in every society…”

    In a somewhat less blatant form, this continues to form the core ideological doctrine of most of the Western media and vast range of Western institutions, including those aid ministries engaged in promoting “governance reform” elsewhere in the world.

    The Sci Fi TV series Firefly and movie Serenity assumed the future for outer space will be like a wild west with lasers, which is American centric of course... but then in the lawlessness of colonies spread across space it probably could be a little bit like that.

    What was most interesting is that the languages being spoken were not only English or even just American English... it had a mix of Chinese... which I thought was interesting at the time.

    It certainly gave a feeling though that it was still all American... the rich, when depicted, seemed very upperclass english, with the main protagonist being merican... the theme for the show is a bit like the US lost the war of independence and the British stayed in charge so they were the bad guys and the good guys were the ex independence american fighters just struggling to pay the bills by transporting cargo and doing various jobs.

    Not to spoil it for those who have not seen it, they end up taking the wrong cargo and become targets for people in power.... which is oddly very similar to the core story of Farscape where a group of prisoners seize their prison transport which itself is a living being that they release from working for the evil empire and also rescue an earth astronaut way off course (American obviously) and in doing so enrage someone within the empire who chases them down relentlessly while they try to survive and get the human back home.

    Farscape was fun because the aliens were not all human shaped and even the ones that were were different... Jim Henson worked on the aliens and the quality it brings shows...

    Instead of ethnic studies why require students to graduate from school by taking Personal Finance where they can learn consumer math, credit, public finance and a few other good topics in that subject? Another subject that is not taught in 99 percent of either public or private schools is Logic or Rhetoric.  That would be quite valuable.

    Canada, the woke totalitarian toilet. Note how the creeping totalitarian laws are always claimed to be benign but always
    end up being used to oppress.

    Even if an individual is a haemaphrodite, which manifestly most trans-genders are not, they need to dress up like the gender
    they want to present themselves as. We have videos on YouCrap showing these trans freaks losing their shit because
    they were addressed as a "he/him" even though they were presenting themselves as males. If you freaks want "she/her"
    then present as a female.

    Expecting people to read your mind and having this put into law is pure human rights abuse and kangaroo law.

    https://www.businessinsider.com/labor-shortage-wisconsin-senate-jobs-work-teenagers-child-labor-hours-2021-10

    Wisconsin's Senate approves a bill allowing 14 year olds to work as late as 11 p.m.

    Wisconsin's Senate approved a bill on Wednesday that would allow 14 and 15-year-olds to work until 11 p.m. on some days — much later than current laws allow.

    Supporters of the bill say it could help plug the state's labor shortage.

    Wisconsin currently sticks to federal child-labor laws, which stipulate that people under the age of 16 can only work between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. from June 1 to Labor Day, and between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. for the rest of the year.

    The proposed bill would allow this group to instead work from 6 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. on days before a school day, and 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. when the next day isn't a school day.

    It has now been sent to the Wisconsin Assembly for approval.

    The bill would keep in place federal rules limiting teens to three hours of work on a school day, eight hours on non-school days, and six days of work a week.

    But the fact the bill wouldn't cover companies with large turnovers, or workers who take credit-card payments, was a potential problem that made the bill "very complex from a compliance standpoint," Hillmer said.




    Wisconsin currently has nearly 3 million people in employment, per preliminary August data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics – roughly as many as it did before the pandemic hit. But businesses across the state still say they're struggling to find enough workers.

    The bill was introduced in April, when the US labor shortage wasn't as bad as it is now. The bill wasn't specifically aimed at the labor shortage.

    Some businesses have tapped into younger workers to plug their labor shortage, like a McDonald's in Oregon that's been recruiting 14-year-olds.

    We have been seeing a reversion in the west back to the good old days of the late 1800s since 1990.

    In Canada, as soon as the "communist threat" disappeared provincial fiefs changed the laws to remove Great Depression
    laws. For example, in Ontario we had the Mike Harris regime which downloaded welfare back onto municipalities from
    the province. During the 1930s various municipalities bankrupted so it makes sense that the province should manage
    welfare as it had a bigger pool of resources. Harris was no aberration. The supposedly liberal McGunity regime that
    took over after Harris did not reverse any of the substantial changes that Harris imposed. They even had a clear mandate
    to do so. The same BS applies to the federal level where supposedly opposing political parties (left vs. right) act like
    a tag team to change the nature of the country.

    The only time the west responded to grass roots pressure was when the USSR was around. The USSR was the reason
    that the west adapted social reform and pretended to care about every child and every family. Now we see that the
    reversion to the child labour, sweatshop utopia of 1880 is in full swing.

    Silly Latinos running to America are going to regret it.

    It is just the usual over reaction over compensation... for many years men have oppressed women and bullied gays and now gays are bullying everyone in return.

    AFAIK there is XY and XX... you don't get to choose your gender, but with modern science being able to change it means some people are deluded into thinking they can.

    What always amused me was in a lesbian couple there was always the harder bloky type one who acts masculine.... which made me wonder if they really were lesbians and it wasn't just a case of a person falling in love with a person who was the same gender.... they wanted a man so they cut their hair and act like a man but remain a woman.

    Ahh, I don't know... it is none of my business what anyone does in the privacy of their own bedroom, which is why I object to gay parades... I don't care... I am not interested in anyone elses sexual orientation.... it seems everyone is a victim now.

    The fascist iron rule of the minority.
