Last week we saw how Google has tripled the bounty for finding bugs in its software and today we’re going to take another look at the latest Google news. Google will put guards on payroll, after concerns about inequality have plagues the company.
Google Will Put Guards on Payroll
Up until now, Google has used a contractor to hire security guards and janitors. Following concerns about inequality and income disparities in California, Google has finally decided to be the good guy all the way through and start hiring security guards and janitors on its own payroll.
Naturally, Google’s move to put these jobs on its payroll is going to create a lot of pressure on other companies in the area, which is a great thing.
A Google spokesperson released a statement in which they said:
Building an in-house security team is something we are excited to do. A year ago we in-sourced the Google security operations center and we are looking forward to making these valued positions both full- and part-time Google employees.
The company remained mum on whether or not this policy would be extended to other contract workers that work for the company.
Back in August, there was a report made by the Working Partnerships USA labor organization that revealed many of high-profile organizations, such as Google, use underpaid minorities and immigrants who were all hired through contractors, as cooks, janitors and security guards. The report concluded that:
These ‘invisible’ workers do not share in the success of the industry which they daily labor to keep running.
The latest Google news reveal that the company is going to hire about 200 people at its offices in Northern California.
