Ahh, I’m being asked to join a union and fight the man, Slashdot reports.
One thing. If “the man” is oppressing you, why can’t you just get another job? I know many other high tech companies that are hiring like crazy (and buying startups too). My friends at other companies say they can’t find enough good tech workers. Both people inside big companies like Yahoo/Google complain about that as well as smaller companies. There just aren’t that many geeks on the street right now.
We’re hiring at a crazy clip here. Seems that lots of people are happy with what we’re offering (we’re spending something like $1.5 billion on building new buildings in the Puget Sound area to house more people too so are planning on further future growth).
I think this competition for workers will keep unions from gaining much strength. Why? Cause there’s no better way to mess with “the man” than to walk off the job and work for the competition.
What do you think?
