Your Call: Could there be a next wave of tech worker organizing?
On today’s Your Call we’ll talk about the recent lawsuits that show Apple, Google, Intel and Adobe illegally conspired to suppress employees’ wages. How are high-skilled workers in tech responding? Could there be a resurgence of organizing among tech workers in response? And why has high-tech proved so resistant to worker organizing? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with me, Matt Martin, and you.
