Google Fires Workers Over Israel Protest



YouTube, @CNBC Television.

Google is terminating the employment of 28 workers after protests against labor conditions and the company’s contract to provide the Israeli government.

CNBC reports the news comes a day after 9 Google employees were arrested for trespassing after staging a sit-in at the company offices in New York and California. 

Google writes “Their behavior was unacceptable, extremely disruptive, and made co-workers feel threatened.”

” Physically impeding other employees’ work and preventing them from accessing our facilities is a clear violation of our policies, and completely unacceptable behavior. After refusing multiple requests to leave the premises, law enforcement was engaged to remove them to ensure office safety,” a Google spokesperson wrote.
