Three men are protesting in front of Tesla headquarters in Palo Alto with a giant Grim Reaper. I drove by and picked up a piece of their literature, they weren’t particularly conversational.
Silicon Valley only occasionally has protests. In the past labor problems have occurred with janitors and recently with the company bus drivers. This protest is from Carpenters Local 713. They are requesting:
“requiring the General Contractors and all their sub-contractors pay the Carpeter Area Standard Wages and Benefits on all jobs all the time”.
I have no opinion on this particular issue as I know few if any details, but I have sympathy for middle and lower income folks trying to make a living wage in such an expensive area. The same sign has also been spotted at San Jose State University and the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op.
