Microsoft Brags About Paying Whites Less Than Minorities

(LibertySociety.com) – With the explosion of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) practices across the country, it may come as no surprise that large corporations that have adopted DEI have also implemented discriminatory hiring and compensation policies. So is the case with Microsoft, which is facing scrutiny for bragging about its “pay equity agenda.” In its 2023 Diversity and Inclusion Report, the software giant admitted that black employees earn $1.004 for every dollar that white employees earn. In addition, the company wrote that Asian employees make $1.012 for every dollar that white employees earn.

Microsoft went further and admitted that the pay discrepancy was present even if the employees had been at the company for equal amounts of time and had the same job title. The report also highlighted how the company promoted its far-left agenda to employees. It noted that 96.4 percent of employees were aware of the “allyship” within the company. Microsoft may soon have a lawsuit on its hands, as some conservatives have begun taking legal action to stop DEI practices. America First Legal, which was founded by former Trump administration official Stephen Miller, filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on February 14 against Disney for engaging in similar practices as Microsoft.

The complaint alleged that Disney decided which employees would receive bonuses based on diversity metrics. The lawsuit included documents that Disney had published on its websites and from internal documents that had been leaked to America First Legal. The leaked documents showed that Disney executives made DEI central to its hiring practices. DEI has also made its way into American colleges and universities. Lawmakers in various states have put forward legislation to end DEI at state public institutions, with some success.

On March 1, the University of Florida fired all employees who held DEI positions and appointments in order to comply with state law. The employees were given 12 weeks of pay and were offered the chance to apply for other open positions at the university.
