Protesters Interrupt Google Conference
Protesters interrupted Google's developer conference today in San Francisco to call attention to evictions and the growing wealth gap in the Bay Area. The tech giant has come under scrutiny in recent months for illegally using the city's municipal bus stops for its employee shuttles. Now the company is under fire for hiring a contractor that pays low wages to it's security guards. Protesters also say the increasing number of Google employees living in San Francisco is driving up the cost of housing. A short lived Occupy Google encampment also sprung up last night to shed light on the debate over net neutrality. Nick St. Charles filed this report.
