Microsoft Brags About Blatantly Racist ‘Pay Equity Agenda’

Microsoft’s 2023 Diversity and Inclusion Report, which brags about compensating employees of color more than white workers for equivalent work, has drawn criticism. The company’s pay equality plan acknowledged in the report that, for every $1 earned by white employees, ethnic minorities who qualify for awards might potentially receive $1.007 in total pay. According to the survey, for every $1 earned by white employees with the same job titles and levels, Asian employees received $1.012 and Black employees earned $1.004. The basic pay, annual bonuses, and stock awards are all included in the total compensation that the report mentions.

The corporation has already caused controversy in 2022 by capping the amount of Asian and White candidates who are eligible to apply for its Fellowship. A salary of $42,000 was part of the Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship package. The corporation mandated that at least two of the four nominees that participating colleges could submit annually come from populations that are Black, Latin American, indigenous, LGBT, military, or disabled.

Not only has Microsoft faced criticism for its diversity and inclusion practices, but Google’s AI picture generator has also drawn criticism, especially from Elon Musk. The billionaire referred to the show as “anti-civilizational,” racist, and irrational. In February 2024, Google came clean about overcompensating to create “diverse” photos, even when those images were illogical. Disney, like Microsoft, has come under fire for using diversity criteria to determine employee bonuses in a federal civil rights lawsuit. According to the lawsuit, the business discriminated against Jews, Christians, and white men.

According to The Daily Wire, a number of businesses, including McKinsey & Company, Bayer Pharmaceuticals, and the U.S. Bank, took their discriminatory practices a step further by forbidding their white staff members from taking part in employee leadership development courses. Microsoft boasted that 96.4% of its employees felt a sense of “allyship” and boasted of fostering far-left beliefs among their staff members. The company’s focus on knowing how to be “allies” in order to establish a “culture of inclusion” was mentioned in one section of the report.
