“April Curley, 34, began working for Google in 2014 but was fired in September 2020,” the Daily Mail reported. “On Friday, she said managers at the search engine company actively thwarted their career ambitions — steering them to lower-level jobs, paying them less and denying them opportunities to advance because of their race.”
“While Google claims that they were looking to increase diversity, they were actually undervaluing, underpaying and mistreating their black employees,’ said Ben Crump, Curley’s lawyer Never Enough: Woke Google Sued by Black Employees for ‘Racism’ a high-profile civil rights advocate who has represented the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, among others,” the report added.

Curley also blames Google for the alleged high dropout rate of black workers at the company.
The lawsuit will likely reveal more details regarding how Google treats its workers and whether its current plans are “woke” enough for the far left.
