ugh.. protip for protesters @google-- have data to back up your claims.

Right now there's a grim reaper effigy and carpenter union folks handing out flyers. Flyer is hyperbolic to the extreme and doesn't have any real data other than that a specific contractor used by google pays below the prevailing union wage. The only action requested is to email REWS.

So I ask the person there: does this apply to projects at Google or is this just a problem with this contractor in general? How many companies employ this contractor? How many people are being paid below wage? What other actions have you taken, if any?

No effing clue on any of those questions nor any passion.

I never thought I'd say it, but it made me nostalgic for eng-misc.
