We tried to unionize at my company, then they fired all of us.
The other crazy part to this story is that the guy who was our manager when all these injuries happened quit when the union was voted in.
He started a new company and is now talking to Bright Power so they can subcontract the solar work to him.
@aaron outrageous, should be publicized like crazy. Did you all contact AOC?
They actually tired to get a comment from her for the article, but didn't hear back.
Definitely would be great to get her thoughts tho 😂
But Aaron, how would he ever relieve himself of the shame of not having a yacht if he had to pay you all a living wage?
"During one of these meetings, the CEO Perlman told workers that he founded the company to do good in the world and that he did not make that much money—pointing out that did not own a yacht and earned less than his wife, the same two workers told Motherboard."
@aaron @Matt_Noyes Definitely seems to be getting some traction among some large-ish lefty accounts... https://twitter.com/_waleedshahid/status/1197582566645288961
@aaron What is the IBEW doing to publicize/fight this?
They are handling negotiating with the company right now, but depending on how things go they do have resources to get the word out
@aaron Almost like green capitalism is no better than other forms of capitalism...
@aaron That's horrible! 🤬
@aaron Don't link to vice.
It only got worse from there.
@aaron Hope they make a coop next and compete with the old boss
@aaron Where are you, again?
@aaron You all should definitely get AOC on this and pressure Bright Power's investors and customers.
@aaron What about forming a workers co-op and pressuring Bright Power to contract with the co-op?
