Google Staff Walks Out Globally, The Wave Of #MeToo Not Dead Yet!

"Workers' rights are women's rights."

On November 1, 2018, over 1000 Google employees walked out of their offices. The walkout was not restricted to just foreign countries, workers in India also joined this version of #MeToo.

According to reports, the staff walked out to protest against un-entertained complaints of sexism and racism in their workplace. Over 150 employees in three offices in India—Mumbai, Hyderabad, and Gurugram protested against the manner in which the company dealt with the sexual harassment cases, globally.

This global protest was conducted in the light of a story which said that Google paid a heavy amount of exit packages to all its male executives who were accused of sexual harassment, including the creator of the Android operating system (OS), Andy Rubin.

But another story also highlighted the fact that Google later fired its 48 employees, who were accused of sexual harassment without offering them any kind of exit package.
