According to Dhillon:

The type of skulduggery that is going on there is simply a digital platform, but it’s as old as time. I think Amazon is responding appropriately in trying to cut this down. It is Amazon’s economic interest to make sure that vendors believe it is a fair and level playing field, but we have tools outside of Amazon, prosecutors and civil parties can file lawsuits and indictments in regard to this type of massive fraudulent behavior. Hopefully that will take place in order for us to put an end to it.

I’m not looking for any movement to be made tomorrow [Google testifying to Congress]. This is a choreographed dance. Members of Congress will read out some questions that their staffers are more adept at technology. Google CEO Pichai will read out a sanitized version of facts that is not related to reality and everyone will accept it. What I hope would happen is hard questions would be asked, why do they ignore the national labor relations act with respect to its workers talking to other people with these issues, and why do they lie to American people and other users about what it does to the data and expects us to believe in. I know why they do all those things, but it would be nice to see our legislators and administration stand up to them and do something about it.

What’s going on right now at Google is that the management is freaking out about critics among their employees daring to talk to the press about project Dragon Fly where they will help the Chinese government spy on its citizens. There is also labor unrest at Google. Google underpays—allegedly— contract workers. It does not pay women equally to men. Rather than address those underlying issues and the conservative bias, Google is choosing to respond by punishing workers who talk about these issues. There are employees who have been fired or harassed and put in fear of their careers and lives which is protected by American labor law. Even liberal friends of mine who work there have described it as an oppressive place. If you are not singing the party line and doing Kumbaya about it, you are risked being fired there.
