Apple, Google, Adobe, and Intel settle class action suit over salaries filed by tech workers.
Posted by Laura
The big tech giants have announced their settlement of a class action suit filed by employees who alleged a wage suppression compact. Why did they settle? It wasn't just a situation where the 21st century oligarchs wanted the nuisance off their backs. The facts that were about to be plastered all over the media were really bad for them. Suddenly their altruistic support for "immigration reform" would appear tone what it really is--raw opportunism. Remember, these are the same companies that claim they suffer from a tech worker "shortage." Politicians who claim to care about the working people should be taking THEIR side in these debates, not the side of the corporate titans who routinely misrepresent the facts to protect their power base and wealth.
