re: Should tech companies use quotas to increase diversity? VIEW POST


OK, what groups get quotas? Gay developers? Bisexual developers? Trans developers? How about Muslim, Mormon, Jewish, and Sikh developers? Should it be regional, where there are quotas for Asian developers in Des Moines but not Seattle? Is the concept of "Asian developers" kind of reductive and, in itself, a racist slur?

Of course, the most important quota is never mentioned: Poor people. People from poor backgrounds. Wouldn't that kind of quota have a much better impact on society?


Good points!

Also the quota you refer to is largely the purpose of graduated tax systems. So fixing the issue for the poor is often a matter of higher tax burdens and increasing social and health security.

Do you have any thoughts on an alternative?
