The "Good Citizens" of High-Tech

Just a little Sherman Anti-Trust violation (or 1,000s of them--who knows?)

...Apple, Google, Adobe, Intel, Intuit and other tech firms, it was revealed, had agreements not to poach one another's employees. Technically, the Department of Justice settled an antitrust lawsuit in 2010, but employees who claim they were injured by the arrangement are still fighting for more, with a proposed class-action lawsuit that's having its day in court this month.  --Ticker quoting The Verge

Silicon Valley firms were also heavily promoting national health-insurance schemes back in the '90's--as were the Big Three automotives.

About time that it is clear:  these assholes are predators, not "capitalists."
