Unlikely bedfellows or co-conspirators against the working man? A judge says they must stand up in court for what they are being accused of having done. Google, Apple, and Intel have loads of former employees accusing them of colluding to keep wages down, through a choking of competition.
It is not only these three, either. Toss in Adobe, Pixar, Intuit, and Lucasfilm. Now you have the makings of a conspiracy theory, right? Not according to a U.S. Judge. A class action suit was opened against all of these companies for collaborating on riding themselves of competition, which ultimately eradicated mobility and limited the wages. How did these big guys do it? According to the suit, they agreed to refrain from poaching each others’ employees.
