Fired Google engineer compares high-paid tech job to Soviet forced labor

        Former Google engineer James Damore, who was fired for
        distributing a memo suggesting women are not biologically
        suited for certain types of work, is now branding himself as a
        brave truth teller. In what appears to be his new Twitter
        account, Damore can be seen wearing a shirt with the word
        "Goolag," a play on "Google" that means to suggest the Silicon
        Valley search company is something like the infamous Soviet
        camps where prisoners were worked and starved to death as part
        of one of the 20th century's worst genocides.  Google, which
        provides free meals, massages, and fitness classes at its
        Mountain View, California headquarters, pays engineers like
        Damore a typical salary of $162,000, according to Glassdoor,
        not including extra compensation like healthcare benefits,
        retirement savings, and equity. The company also offers its
        employees training opportunities, including volunteer sessions
        on subjects like diversity and unconscious bias.  You know,
        just like a Gulag.
