"Peter Asaro, associate professor of media studies at the New School in New York, coauthored a letter that echoed the demands of Google's protesting employees. Asaro said maybe it's time to conceive of a new and modern labor union.
"In the past, unions organized primarily around working conditions and compensation," Asaro said. "But why not now demand a say in the direction of the company? Sure, in some sense these are a privileged set of workers but that doesn't mean they are not still workers. Why should they allow a small group of C-suite executives make these ethical decisions when it has to be implemented by workers anyway?""
