If you're a white man who works at Intel, there's a 27.8% chance that you make more than $208,000 per year. If you're a black woman who works at Intel, there's only a 9.5% chance that you make that much.

Data: Intel 2017 and 2018 EEO-1 Pay Disclosure; Chart: Danielle Alberti/Axios

This ugly truth was revealed by Intel in a pay disclosure this week the like of which I can't ever recall seeing from corporate America.

  • The Intel report came on the heels of Uber's own warts-and-all safety report, which disclosed nearly 6,000 sex assaults of various types over two years.
  • The Uber report revealed 107 deaths in two years from 97 fatal crashes — including the death of 32 pedestrians and two cyclists. Plus, another 19 "fatal physical assaults" and 464 incidents of "non-consensual sexual penetration."
  • The report was restricted to the U.S., despite the fact that most of Uber's business (and almost certainly the majority of total murders and rapes that happen on its platform) is in other countries.

Why it matters: Most companies like to keep bad news under wraps. Intel and Uber are bringing transparency to their failings, which, we can only hope, will encourage other companies to follow suit. Problems denied are problems that will never be solved.

Trump signs 4 executive actions on coronavirus aid

President Trump on Saturday signed four executive actions to provide relief from economic damage sustained during the coronavirus pandemic after talks between the White House and Democratic leadership collapsed Friday afternoon.

Why it matters: Because the Constitution gives Congress the power to appropriate federal spending, Trump has limited authority to act unilaterally — and risks a legal challenge if congressional Democrats believe he has overstepped.

Beirut residents are still clearing rubble from streets that appear war-torn, days after a blast that shocked the country and horrified the world.

Why it matters: The explosion is likely to accelerate a painful cycle Lebanon was already living through — discontent, economic distress, and emigration.
