If you see white vans pulling up to people on the street and violently dragging them inside, don't worry, it's not a kidnapping...it's Google trying to meet its diversity quota. Apparently great pay, amazing bonuses and a work environment that is mimicked in Hollywood movies isn't enough to entice people to come work for them.

Google's overall percentage of non-white, non-Asian employees in the United States did not move at all in 2015 from the year before, remaining at 2 percent for African Americans, 3 percent for Hispanics, 3 percent for multiracial individuals and less than 1 percent for Native American and Pacific Islanders, according to the company. Women made up 31 percent of Google's overall workforce in 2015, up 1 percent from 2014, and 21 percent of technical hires for the year, up from 19 percent in 2014.
