fandomsandfeminism: jenniferrpovey: beachgirlnikita: thememacat: WTF is this for real? Yes - https://www.costco.com/benefits.html See, what the race-to-the-bottom people forget is one simple fact: The average cost to replace a minimum-wage retail employee, according to a study by the Center for American Progress, is $3,328. And that’s a lowball. Basically, any time somebody quits or is fired, it costs the company money. A lot of money. New employees are also less productive (because it takes people longer to do things they are less familiar with). Employee churn is very expensive. The Wal-Mart (and Amazon) model is to consider employees as expendable robots. They completely dismiss the costs of hiring, onboarding, training, reduced productivity during the training period, etc, because “these people are cheap.” Costco treats employees as “appreciating assets” - that is to say, employees become more valuable over time. Therefore, it is better and more productive to only replace employees who aren’t doing their jobs. Let’s take a warehouse worker in a large facility. A new worker will waste time remembering which aisle it is, may take a longer route there, etc. Somebody who has been there a year has it down cold. They’ll pick the item far quicker than the new person. This improves productivity, which improves profits. But for some reason a lot of companies don’t seem to grasp this. All they see is the paycheck, when the actual figure they should be looking at is the profit a worker produces. That is to say, the difference between productivity and pay. Raising pay causes people to stick around and become more productive, which actually increases the profit in the long term. We need to stop thinking so short term. Oh my god. Costco employees get paid better than starting teachers in my school district. (Which is not to say they should be paid less. We should be paid more.) : COSTCO'S CEO EXPLAINS HOW THEY MAKE RECORD PROFITS "WE PAY WORKERS $45K/YEAR, PROVIDE HEALTH INSURANCE AND LET THEM UNIONIZE THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT WALMART DOES." quickmeme.com fandomsandfeminism: jenniferrpovey: beachgirlnikita: thememacat: WTF is this for real?

spacemonkeyg78: zombierightsactavist: Someone: hires a woman Men: “THIS IS LITERAL OPRESSION” The automatic assumption that recruiting women equals hiring less qualified people is some serious sexism at work. : Tweet Duolingo e @duolingo This year, we achieved a 50:50 gender ratio for new software engineer hires. V Next up: 50:50 companywide. This Women in Tech Week, we're proud to celebrate all of the incredible women who make Duolingo great #2018:WITW Tweet your reply Luis von Ahn @LuisvonAhn Duolingo just tweeted about how we achieved a 50% female ratio of new engineering college graduate hires. We're very proud of this. I'm disappointed that the top comments were all from men angrily arguing discrimination, and that we should hire the best people instead. Idiots. Luis von Ahn @LuisvonAhn T he women we hired had either perfect or near perfect GPAs from the best universities in the world, with stellar recommendations, and aced our very thorough interview process. We've gotten over 90K applicants for jobs throughout time, and we've made offers to under 250. 10/11/18, 9:42 AM 120 Retweets 880 Likes Luis von Ahn @LuisvonAhr We achieved a 50% ratio not by lowering our standards or by discriminating against men. We did it by only actively recruiting fronm colleges with higher female ratios in their computer science programs. These were also not shitty colleges -- CMU, MIT, Duke, Cornell, Harvard, etc. 10/11/18, 9:44 AM 244 Retweets 1,227 Likes Luis von Ahn @LuisvonAhn If other companies do this, colleges will be incentivized to have more diverse graduating classes. I'm amazed that it's 2018 and I still have to defend gender equality. 10/11/18, 9:44 AM 125 Retweets 1,259 Likes spacemonkeyg78: zombierightsactavist: Someone: hires a woman Men: “THIS IS LITERAL OPRESSION” The automatic assumption that recruiting women equals hiring less qualified people is some serious sexism at work.
