We stand in solidarity with the Amazon workers who have walked out today. No more prioritizing trucks, which equates to prioritizing money, over people!

If you can't attend but would like to help, sign the organizers' petition. They're at nearly 38k signatures with a goal of 50k. Let's get them there!

San Bruno Wal-Mart employees are walking out at 3pm PST today to protest their employer continuing to sell guns. If you're in the area, we encourage you to join them. Cross-industry worker solidarity gets results - when we fight, we win!

Retaliation in all forms is despicable, but against workers asking their company to stop fueling an urgent crisis that's taking lives? Horrific. We stand in solidarity with these Wal-Mart workers.

End Forced Arbitration Aug 2
Honored to share the company of Steven J. Sharp & past plaintiffs that have fought to improve the American civil justice system. Pictured here: members of our group moments before our speech, laughing about the absurdity of forced arbitration.

. and were brilliant. 15 minutes of your time, well worth it. p.s. "no retaliation" is like "no collusion". If they did retaliate, would they admit it? Hell no. They said the same when they pushed me out early. "No retaliation".

Yesterday was my last day at Google. It's been a long, wild road, and I am thrilled to be officially stepping into my role as Co-director of full time at NYU. Here's what I wrote to my friends and colleagues who remain at Google

Holding Google accountable&ensuring a safe workplace will require tech worker organizers form strong alliances w/ independent researchers, journalists, & communities on the front lines. This has the added benefit of building more powerful organizing structures. Onward! Meredith

As such, people living in contexts well outside of Google are often in the best position to speak to the true impacts of Google’s tech — whether it be the click-workers training data for AI models, or the communities most impacted by YouTube’s engagement-driven algorithm.

Build solidarity with those beyond the company The application of Google’s tech goes well beyond the relatively homogeneous Google campuses (“billions of users or none,” I’ve heard many an exec opine).

Such a demand should be at the core of ethical organizing, and could be extended to ensure that the public is aware of where specific technologies that impact their lives and communities are being applied, and by whom.

And to uphold this right, Google’s infrastructures and processes need to adapt, providing a “chain of title” from design through to application. This is also a structural requirement for meaningful accountability and compliance.

Demand to know what you’re working on/how it’s used: Too often, those designing/developing technical systems don’t know how they’ll be used, or by whom (see: Maven, Dragonfly, etc). The right to know what you’re working on, &how it’s applied, should be recognized as fundamental.

The public deserves to know how, and where, powerful technical systems are shaping their lives and opportunities.

Google needs worker-led structures that can ensure it’s safe to speak about the darker side of the company. These should include protections for whistleblowers who alert the public to dangerous or unethical projects that put them at risk.

Protect conscientious objectors & whistleblowers: We’ve seen too many reports of retaliation/punishment against those who speak up about unethical projects and toxic workplace conditions. This prevents necessary change and makes accountability impossible.
