A call for TWiT to address equal pay for women in tech

There’s been a lot of discussion here around the round table at the editorial board at TotalDrama about the alleged recent bombshell TWiT salaries leak. Should we publish the data? Should we expose the real leak inside TWiT? Is this even real? Would the retaliation against Jason C. Cleanthes (EffenDunn) be so devastating personally that he’d be in danger of losing his job and having to resort to this or heaven forbid, this.

TotalDrama has decided that we are not comfortable with any of those scenarios. (And it’s possible somebody impersonated EffenDunn.) Moreover, the exact salary figures aren’t really important. What is important is that TWiT’s female staffers are allegedly getting a raw deal. They might possibly be working more hours for less pay than their male counterparts. So out of respect to the women at TWiT, we are not going to release the salaries—we believe it would foment too much ill will among current staffers.

But the fact remains that an alleged massive imbalance in pay between male and female staffers must be addressed publicly by Leo and Lisa if there is any hope of living up to the worthy ideal of equal pay for women in tech.

So we call upon Leo and Lisa to address this issue head on. Without their strong voice setting the record straight, their viewers and our readers have no choice but to assume the worst.

  1. While I respect your decision, I wish you had released the numbers. Because of the way L & L operate, I see them doing nothing to alleviate this horrible situation. I’m sure they will cll your words “conjecture,” whereas if you released hard numbers, you back them into a corner and force a change.

      1. HelloWorld,

        Please re-consider.

        We all know that Tom made $200k. That’s public info that Leo has revealed several times.

        Also, all hosts make six figures.

        So as long as those line up, you should be good.

      1. It may be libel because you have NOT published, merely insinuated.

        And who is ‘he’ in this? “How is it libel if he says he cannot vouch for their accuracy? ”

  2. he has no actual numbers. he makes stuff up to make himself seem more important and so people will like him.

    he told everyone at school that Beyonce was gonna play at his birthday party and then made up some lame excuse about her getting sick when she didnt show and we all stood around watching the lame magician his mom hired

    1. Molly, again you’re full of shit! Stop throwing out things that are not true. As long as he says these numbers may be fake, he is covered legally. And if they re real, Leo has no cause of action legally. Did you ever hear of the Pentagon papers? The leaker was never charged, since there’s no crime.

      So get your fat, maggot-filled pussy out of here bitch.

      Fuck off, douchebag!

      There are no grounds to
