Three Years of Misery Inside Google, the Happiest Company in Tech

quote [ Over the past three years, the structures that once allowed executives and internal activists to hash out tensions had badly eroded. In their place was a new machinery that the company's activists on the left had built up, one that skillfully leveraged media attention and drew on traditional organizing tactics. Dissent was no longer a family affair. ]

Can't believe I read all of that. Insightful stories though; it seems tricky to keep on rolling like before.

Koch Foods hires undocumented workers, mistreats them, loses a lawsuit about it, and has ICE deport them to avoid paying the damages

quote [ Hispanic workers at the company?s Morton, Mississippi, chicken processing plant were subjected to touching and sexually suggestive comments, were hit, were charged money for ?normal everyday work activities? and faced retaliation after complaining, EEOC alleged.

After immigration authorities rounded up hundreds of workers in a massive sweep at seven Mississippi food processing plants, friends and family members are desperately searching for answers. ]

I guess this is hitting the reset button? I wonder if this just means they start over hiring new undocumented workers with the plan to exploit them. Maybe shuffle shuffle business around so the decree only applies to one model location while they continue business as usual as a tenuously connected subsidiary under a different name.

The Manson Girl Who Got Away

quote [ ?Juanita? (not her actual name) was on a road trip from San Jose, California, to Mexico via Phoenix, Arizona. In Mexico she was going to try to reunite with her fianc, from whom she was estranged. (...) South of San Jose, she stopped to pick up a pregnant-looking hitchhiker who turned out to be accompanied by two men. All three were from the Manson Family. ]

I have been fortunate in my life - when I was down, there were honourable people there to catch me when I fell. I never had to rely on luck, as this woman did. She escaped from Charles Manson, which is pretty impressive, but the part of the story that was the most interesting to me was how she got caught in the first place. The descent into evil is not as clear a path as you might think...
