Google has announced that it has begun paying its gay staff more than heterosexual employees to compensate for the higher taxes they have to pay.

Google headquarters in Mountain View, California
..The search firm decided that it was 'only fair' to increase the salaries of its gay staff, according to a spokesman.

U.S. law states that when firms offer health insurance for an employee's partner, it is tax-free for married couples but taxable for lesbian and homosexual couples.

Google is now offering to pay out the difference, backdated to January 1, meaning employees could receive on average an extra £650 a year.

Google currently employs 20,600 staff, though it is unclear how many will benefit from the latest policy. The measures will only be applicable to workers in the U.S.

Personnel chief Laszlo Bock, stated that the firm felt moved to act after an employee pointed out the problems gay employees faced.

'We said, "Youíre right, that doesnít seem fair,"' he said. Google have refused to reveal how much the new policy will cost the search engine, which made profits of £4billion last year.

So straight live-ins are ...............the new gay?

That would never happen with Holder as AG:rolleyes: Wait, was that 2 sprockets I saw on You tube in front of a polling place with a weapon. Obama would never allow shit like that to happen without them being punished.:eek:

Google sucking up to the queers is pretty pathetic. One reason gays pay more in Federal Income Taxes is because they make more on average than heterosexuals make. Plus, the IRS is just downright mean to the fags. No gay marriage deduction for you.

I suppose there would be a lot of outrage if a company had a policy to pay straights more than gays. I wonder if there will be similar outrage over this. I could see gays getting deals on the company health-care plan or something (due to group rates and spousal coverage). But this seems a bit unfair.

It SEEMS like queers would/should be charged higher premiums because of their lifestyle. Some companies will not hire a smoker but an at risk butt huncher for Aids is okie dokie.

Well, I have a very strong "businesses can pay their employees what they want, if you don't like it go somewhere else" streak running through me. :p
