…they go and hire illegal workers!
For Google no Less!
Or so says this post on Valleywag. Here’s the snippet that’s tangentially related to our lives as Wesleyan students:
One of our sources with Google’s ready-to-boil kitchens, whom we’ve nicknamed “Deep Fried,” tells us that the employee-coddling search giant has a much bigger food problem than cutbacks on dinner — and a much bigger labor problem than a lack of work visas for its programmers. More than half of the contract workers who prepare and serve Googler’s vast quantities of free food, our source claims, lack documentation that proves they have a legal right to live and work in the United States. Are they illegal aliens? The point is that Bon Appétit, the management company which runs Google’s cafes, has turned a blind eye — as has Google, until recently. A former chef tells us Google would frequently let workers who didn’t have proper credentials return to work with fresh documents, under new names.
Oh, and one of the commenters a few posts down said they got rid of the Summerfields Salad Bar, so there’s that to complain about too. [edit: apparently not]
