The Obama administration pushed through a massive labor reform law in 2015 that eliminated some of the most basic protections for workers.
And now, a new report from the New America Foundation reveals that Google, Facebook and Amazon have all been involved in an effort to weaken these protections.
The report details how the three companies helped create an environment that allows corporations to pay low wages and conditions, force workers to take on debt, and abuse workers’ privacy.
It also explains how Google, Amazon and Microsoft worked together to undermine workers’ rights and undermine the economic power of unions.
“Google, Microsoft, and Amazon all knew they were going to have a difficult time getting workers to come together and fight for better working conditions and protections,” said Sarah Harrison, a senior fellow at the New American Foundation and co-author of the report.
“The only way for us to make that happen is for everyone to see how these companies were able to manipulate the labor market to keep wages low and conditions low, and to keep employees from organizing.”
This is not the first time that Google and Microsoft have taken advantage of the lack of labor protections in their respective industries to push back on workers’ organizing.
Google has a history of exploiting workers and pushing them to take risks, while Microsoft is known for its aggressive business practices and tactics to control labor costs and to stifle workers’ political and political activity.
But this time, it’s the combination of these companies’ actions that will be most significant.
Google is already making significant changes to its work environment.
Google’s workforce is composed of thousands of programmers, designers, engineers, marketers and other workers.
Microsoft is also a big employer of technology workers, including software developers, data scientists, designers and engineers.
All of these groups have had their wages and working conditions drastically reduced under the new law.
In 2016, for example, Microsoft paid a worker $12 per hour for her first hour of work and paid her another $3 per hour after two hours.
By the time she worked six hours, she was already $7 per hour below the federal minimum wage.
In 2015, Google paid its workforce $13 per hour and in 2016, it paid a $15 per hour employee.
The companies also began pushing to close down local labor unions.
The changes to their labor policies, including cutting benefits and hours, have forced workers to find other employment.
As the New York Times reported, Google’s top managers are using the companies’ own data to track workers, sometimes by asking them to provide their social media accounts and phone numbers, as well as their physical addresses, which is a violation of their human rights.
This year, the company started requiring all employees to provide a copy of their birth certificate to prove they are eligible for overtime, and Microsoft began asking employees to wear badges that would allow the company to track employees’ movements and social media posts.
And the companies have also introduced a new policy that requires employees to complete at least one training on how to manage their own social media and other personal information, which the company claims is necessary for them to comply with the new labor reforms.
In the case of Google, the policy specifically allows for employers to fire workers for not providing enough information about themselves to the company’s HR department.
But the company has been slow to enforce the new rules, and a recent lawsuit revealed that workers in China who were not properly trained in the new regulations were punished with severe fines and sometimes even forced to leave the country.
“There’s a real concern that Google is now taking advantage of workers and that this is going to continue for the next several years,” Harrison said.
“But it’s also important to remember that these companies are just starting to come to grips with what’s happening.”
This isn’t the first year that Google has faced criticism for the way it treats its employees.
Google was forced to pay millions of dollars in fines and lawsuits in the early part of the year for allegedly violating workers’ safety laws, but Harrison said it has yet to take significant action to protect workers from retaliation.
This is also not the only case of a tech company abusing its workers.
Facebook has been criticized for not giving enough time for employees to participate in union organizing, for using unpaid interns and for the company failing to provide paid maternity leave.
In a statement, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg defended his company’s policies on workers, saying that Facebook has “worked hard to improve the lives of our workers” and “to build the best company on earth.”
But Harrison said that even if Facebook had implemented a more flexible labor system, workers could still be vulnerable to exploitation.
“This is not about Facebook, but about what the tech industry has done to the workforce,” Harrison told me.
“We know that the tech companies are not above the law.
But it is critical that tech companies recognize that they are also human rights abusers.”
The companies have been under scrutiny for years for their labor practices and their efforts to use
