Google employees revolt, demands company not work with ICE

Google employees revolt, demands company not work with ICE


CHARLES: SO GOOGLE EMPLOYEES ARE DEMANDING IN A PETITION THAT THE COMPANY DOES NOT BID ON A CLOUD COMPUTING CONTRACT WITH THE U.S. CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION. THEY SAY IMMIGRATION OFFICIALS ARE, QUOTE, PERPETUATING A SYSTEM OF ABUSE AND NEGLECT ON THE BORDER. WE HAVE THE LATEST NOW.>>I HAVEN’T HEARD BACK FROM GOOGLE ON THIS, BUT IT’S YET TO RESPOND TO THESE CLAIMS IN THE PETITION, BUT MORE THAN 500 WORKERS SIGNED THIS PETITION SO FAR. THEY ALSO SAID THAT WORKING WITH CBP AND I.C.E. WOULD BE FACILITATING HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES. THIS IS ALL ABOUT CLOUD CONTRACTS AND IT IS A HUGE PART OF GOOGLE’S BUSINESS AND IT IS A SEGMENT WHERE IT COMPETES WITH AMAZON. GOOGLE MAKES ROUGHLY 8 BILLION DOLLARS IN SALES FROM THE CLOUD BUSINESS, BUT THE EMPLOYEES FEEL THERE SHOULD BE SOME RESTRICTIONS ON THE KIND OF WORK THAT GOOGLE CAN DO, THAT IN THIS CASE GOOGLE WOULD BE QUOTE COMPLICIT BY WORKING WITH THESE AGENCIES. LAST YEAR A SIMILAR SITUATION AROSE WHEN WORKERS PROTESTED GOOGLE’S WORK WITH THE PENTAGON. IN THAT CASE IT WAS OVER A PROJECT WHICH ACTUALLY USES AN EYE IN CONJUNCTION WITH DRONES. THAT PETITION SAW MORE THAN 4,000 SIGNATURES. IT EVEN BROUGHT ON SOME RESIGNATIONS AT GOOGLE. IN THE LAST INSTANCE, THE CEO CREATED SOME GUIDING PRINCIPLES FOR AI AND ITS USE IN WEAPONRY, BUT GOOGLE DID PURSUE THE CONTRACTS. THE BUSINESS FAR TOO VALUABLE. IT RAISES AN INTERESTING DEBATE ABOUT HOW PEOPLE FEEL ABOUT THEIR WORK CONTRIBUTIONS, ESPECIALLY IN THE FIELD OF CONTROVERSIAL TECHNOLOGY. CHARLES, AS THIS UNFOLDS, IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW COMPANIES RESPOND TO THIS BECAUSE IT PROBABLY WON’T JUST BE GOOGLE. CHARLES: IT PROBABLY WON’T, BUT WE HAVE SEEN IT AT GOOGLE BEFORE. IT SEEMS TO BE A SILICON VALLEY PHENOMENON, JACKIE. TOUGH WONDER, I CAN’T KEEP TRACK OF THE SCORE CARD ON WHEN MANAGEMENT HAS BLINKED OR NOT, BUT CERTAINLY THESE EMPLOYEES FEEL MORE EMBOLDENED ON THINGS THAT, YOU KNOW, OFTEN HELP OUR COUNTRY. WHERE DOES THIS GO?>>IT IS A TOUGH BALANCE TO STRIKE. MANAGEMENT TEAMS ARE GOING TO HAVE TO FIGURE IT OUT. THERE’S A LOT OF POLITICS INVOLVED. IT IS A BUSINESS DECISION. AT THE SAME TIME PEOPLE HAVE FEELINGS THAT CAN’T BE IGNORED. SO MANY DIFFERENT FACTORS. YOU KNOW, BUT GOOGLE CERTAINLY IS GOING TO BE A LEADER IN SOME SENSE IN HAVING THESE PETITIONS ON ITS PLATE IN SORT OF SETTING THE STAGE OF HOW THEY DO HANDLE THIS. CHARLES: JACKIE, WE’LL KEEP

  1. But they're totally ok with Google working with the Communist Chinese and election meddling in America working with the DemonKKKrat party. 🤦🏾‍♂️

  2. They  are  turning  opinions  against   all  Trump  voters  and  silencing  everything  onTrump  except  the  lies.  Google  needs  to  pay  but  people  just  keep  using them.

  3. When  American  companies  refuse  to  work  with  the  US  government  they  are  athreat  to  the  country  and  need  to  go  elsewhere.

  4. Why would our border patrol and the government even allow Google to have any of their business? Sounds like our government needs to remove their head from butt they know how corrupt and anti-American google is. Allow them to have access to any documents is stupid.

  5. It's OK for Google to work with the Chinese Military , but not the US Military , I GUESS GOOGLE has no choice but to FIRE ,those employees ,who are FORCING ,THIER TREASONOUS DEMANDS ON GOOGLE , or SHUT GOOGLE DOWN ,

  6. Got something for all you Google workers suck on the end of this. We the American people don`t need you or your funky web site. Stay in China. America is about border if you`re illegal get out before we Americans start throwing you out bodily. It`s coming and you can blame yourselves for starting it. We owe you nothing but a boot up your backside.

  7. The attitude of the Google employees towards projects should give pause to anyone who is considering entering a contractual relationship with Google. Cloud security breaches, coding compromises and/or significant project delays with cost overruns likely the result. Google should decide if it's a
    political organization run by employees or a technology business. Their suppression of search results and voices on YouTube suggests they've committed to the former.

    Perhaps you may wish to ask Google why businesses shouldn't have serious concerns entering into contractual relationships with them?

  8. Can these employees be trusted if Google moves ahead, or will there be employees doing nefarious things like we see so many times in the food industry, spitting on burgers, or like the congressional aids that DOXED Republican senators?

  9. So I guess it's alright with these piece of s*** Google employees that Google helps China control their people with less freedoms on their face recognition and different things for the piece of s*** communist totalitarian regime Chinese government but I guess that's all right with this piece of s*** workers at google , it's time for America to help these other companies to become stronger against Google like Amazon and things like that and make them stronger and make Google weaker that's what America needs to do if Google wants to do business with foreign countries and not with America and not help America because they are American than f**** mm it's time for something else would lose a lot of money without America, and Trump could completely shut him down if he thinks there a security threat are you piece of s*** Google are you a security threat to America??🇱🇷 First

  10. Could these H1B Visa holders be anymore Anti American?….Time to make America for Americans…Pull their visas and SEND THEM BACK!..

  11. This is the time google takes a giant step out of the sh-t hole. Begins patriotism and supporting this great country's constitution and Bill of Rights.

  12. Google monopoly complex political social programming/brain-washing giant needs to be hit right between the eyes with a well flung stone !!! Trump's DOJ = David !

  13. Google, YouTube, FaceBook and Twitter are censoring for a long time, as their founders are brain washed in the neo-Marxist anti-American US academia which had destroyed their common sense. they all should be sued for their violations of the First s of US Constitution. They should be also broken down as they had become monopolies of thought…just as SPLC, and even ADL…all ignorant of history and Islam…

  14. I have to actually agree with these workers! Allowing Google ANY access to US government information would be criminal!

  15. ICE is the bad guy huh? Google mines data and sells everyone's information to whoever pays. Who should be protesting who? All this will do in the end is making another company stronger and more wealthy.

  16. Really? Aiding China is acceptable with their impeccable record on human rights abuse…those idiots are probably not even old enough to remember Tiananmen square…🖕🖕🖕

  17. When was it normal for people to hurt their own business they have vested interest in? Military police to crack down on anyone who makes delusional statements more than 5 times in one day.
    Punishment: They must sell sea shells, down by the sea shore.

    (Oh I know$)

  18. It’s a sad thing when employees dictate company policy. And the company will probably listen to them. Management needs to grow a backbone and stand up for themselves. Most of these people are goofy millennials who have never done much make french fries at a fast food place or worked on computers. 500 vacancies at google would be filled quickly enough with people who would leave their political views at home.

  19. GOOGLE IS A TRAITOR OF AMERICAN PEOPLE AND AMERICA. WITHOUT AMERICA AND AMERICAN PEOPLE, WOULD THEY EVEN BE ABLE TO GROW THIS BIG?

  20. Google should be reclassified as a content provider and pay the price for meddling in elections and government affairs. It’s clear the management backs up these employees so management should pay the price and have certain exemptions taken away they have clearly become a content provider by Censoring content that doesn’t agree with they’re political views. They are no longer just a search engine they are pushing the Democratic party’s views on every level and writing those views into the algorithms for searches.

  21. So if these ppl were fired and let's say..Trump supporters were hired..would the then fired workers sue bc…this is America

  22. Google is about to trigger my oath. I swore to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign or domestic. Rigging elections is an attack on our Constitutional form of government.

  23. Fire the employees for non-supportive actions of our government. There are a lot, ALOT of people who would live a job at Google.

  24. 👋Go ahead they don’t need a job . Googles employees are not the ones who use their company . One day these idiots are going to have their pictures published and will be known for their attacks on Americans.

  25. They are always, as in 24 7 365, welcome to leave America. Please google employees, if you are reading this, exit now. Btw, no matter how long you throw your temper tantrum, Hillary lost.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  26. Great! A list of traitors! Str8 to HR and FIRE THEM! Shhhh w8 give them ALL a chance to sign 1st… that way we have a complete list. Then perhaps we send that list to the department of homeland security… is Google an American company or a Chinese company?

  27. I'm sure Google is shocked and taken completely unawares by the employee uprising. Every American is being heavily influenced by this pointless publicity stunt. HAA!

  28. If Google don’t comply the government should intervene and break up these monopoly’s all of them they are holding entire country’s hostage

  29. These google employees are known that they are capable of undermining the democratic process! They should be fired as google should be apolitical. These employers should be investigated to see their ties as they are helping criminal organisations

  30. Companies gives people jobs then they revolt cause it does not fit their beliefs and values then the companies should have a right to fire them all. Employees are paid to do a job and not their feelings and politics. Get another job, cause look what happened to Amazon with AOC in NY.

  31. See how socialists think. They believe that they have a right to tell their employer what to do. You handle them by giving them the boot

  32. Google is evil
    Google is evil
    Internet and eastern people are evil
    Middle eastern people are evil
    Black are evil
    This world is the world of evil

  33. Well start taxing Google and all companies 65% for housing illegals and start enforcing these punishments on all companies who break the laws by giving jobs to illegals and committed tax fraudby paying these people off the books and then charging a hefty price for their products.
    And the same with any business that leaves this country size they want open up shop in Asia start taxing them 65%

  34. Ya I Switched this week to DUCKDUCKGO for my browser. I Can't support a company who is racist and believes in breaking laws as well as unethical in how it puts some thing above others based on SJW logic. Screw you Google

  35. It's okay, the EU is going to tax Google out of their territories. Then they will have to look at where they intend to call home.

  36. F google, i wouldnt trust them, Goverment should maybe run there own "cloud" aka a bunch of servers, there is plenty of americans to do it, goverment files/documents should not be trusted to any 3rd party.

  37. Google employees should wake the hell up and do their dam homework. I can't believe that such so called smart people can be so dam stupid. Who runs Google the employees or the VP???????? THE STUPIDITY IS INSANE. Ice and BP are doing their jobs ,if u don't like it take it up with Congress..

  38. Go ahead Google. There are thousands of us between family and friends that will do away with our Google accounts. when your employees care more about politics than serving their customers, I'm done with you.

  39. Google employees should have no say YOU ARE HIRED TO DO A JOB A TASK YOU ARE >>> PAYED <<< FOR THAT TASK IF you dislike whats Direction the Company Heading. Give Management ONE"S TWO WEEK NOTICE"S. I here Mcdonald an the Dollar Tree are taken application. How dare one try to VOICE ONE'S Personal Opinion on What Contract's a Billion Dollar Company Take's In. >>YOU ARE A PART THAT CAN BE REPLACED WITH IN GOOGLE >> a Cheaper Part at that, The CEO may consider Rolling, or turning over the Fruit Basket, as well as Cross Train,
