The level is “highest paid”, “Senior corporate executives” levels. These aren’t work-your-way-to-the-top levels. These are plucked from other companies, plucked from schools, there are not hire-from-within positions.
Also: work-your-way-to-the-top is generally and almost wholly a myth.
That important bit is in the article, although scattered, as news articles like to do. There’s plenty of diversity at the bottom tiers. Plenty of diversity at “loan preparation” areas.
This is talking about the invisible higher up levels that you and me never see, the decision-makers of the organization.
But y’all got your narrative prepared already. As long it’s not about race, it can be about anything else. Just be sure it’s not about race. There is no checkbox for it as racism is in the past and no longer exists. It must be factors that affect white people as well or it does not count as valid.
Because hey, as we all know, the REAL RACISM is against white people.
Even CEOs aren’t immune by the racist attacks. Poor CEO, having to answer for hiring practices regarding race when there is no such thing right? Silly racists always causing trouble for these CEO guys and us, the temporarily displaced CEOs.
Well, I worked in the pharmaceutical industry and while “producers” got pulled up from the top, the top several tiers were usually friends/ family / political in nature.
But they had different decisions to be made probably. Some parts were scientific, some were government, some were marketing, some direct sales, etc.
Production was only a facet of the company.
I’m doubtful it’s all about production because if so that would be a really shitty place to work. Ponzi from bottom to top. Is our banking industry that? Maybe so. I’d like to believe they serve some other function too as most companies aren’t all about cancerous self-growth.
I’m not a capitalist so I have no love for our system.
I did my time playing with stocks once. It was a lot of fun. Wouldn’t do it now as I read a bubble like I’d never seen before but that was 20 years ago during the dot-com bust. I did good, worked out well.
I’m out of the loop living in the woods now but I was never much for govt orgs, corp orgs, etc. All variations on a theme to me.
