    Trump targeting GOP members of Congress, Rice in trouble in S.C. [Read free here]
    Washington Post (Moderate Left) • Factual Grade 79% • 12 min read

    Trump is backing GOP primary opponents of two South Carolina Republican incumbent members of Congress — Reps. Tom Rice and Nancy Mace — who did not back his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Rice is being challenged by state Rep. Russell Fry. Mace is being challenged by former congresswoman Katie Arrington. Fry and Arrington are backed by Trump.
    ...
    Rep. Mace is projected to win the primary against Katie Arrington. While [Mace] backed [Trump in 2018], she was successful in attracting independents and some Democrats by not being a true believer.
    ...
    Rep. Rice is projected to lose to state Rep. Russell Fry. The race was closely watched because many Republicans disapproved of Rice’s vote to impeach former president Trump. Rice has tried to convince voters that he is a consistent conservative who was capable of representing them in Washington as he has for the past decade. He has a track record of overwhelmingly supporting the former president’s policies.

Should tech companies strive to ensure half their workforce is female?

428 votes, 85 comments

Context: Google settles gender discrimination lawsuit.

HIGHLIGHTED COMMENTS

No - Tech companies should strive to ensure that they hire fairly, do not discriminate based on gender (or a number of other factors for that matter), and pay women and men equally. [...] However, I still hesitate to implement a 50% standard because I'm not sure if that is a representative sample of the available workforce for any given position. That in and of itself is another issue, but until that issue is resolved a 50% "quota" would likely lead to bad hiring practices, poor employee retention, and a host of other possible issues.


Yes - It is unlikely to ever be exactly 50/50 but there's nothing wrong with striving for a workforce full of teams with diverse backgrounds to bring ...



Unsure - This is a very specific goal that I think misses the point a little bit. I think rather than just striving for half the workforc...
