Google is in the middle of a class-action lawsuit alleging that it underpays women for performing the same job as men. However, Google's annual pay equity analysis for 2018, found something nobody expected. Google was actually underpaying men for doing the same work as women! Google has conducted an annual gender and racial equity report since 2012. According to The Washington Post Google's latest report revealed that, "Managers had dipped into the discretionary funds more often for women engineers, creating a pay gap for men in the same job category."  There may be a pay gap between men and women in some work environments but Google's knee-jerk response to correct wage disparity between men and women, is now unfair to men.
