Google has fired four employees who had been active in labor organizing inside the tech giant. One of the fired workers, Rebecca Rivers, had objected to Google’s bid to collaborate with Customs and Border Protection, or CBP. Another one of the fired workers, Laurence Berland, had protested hate speech on YouTube, which is owned by Google. The company claims all four workers were fired for violations of Google’s data security policies.
