FILM PREMIERE: When Rules Don’t Apply
May 30, 2019 6-9pm
UC Hastings College of the Law
SAN FRANCISCO, CA
Reception: sky room, 100 McAllister Street
film: classroom A, 198 McAllister Street
Filmmakers Collaborative, Tech Workers Coalition, and UC Hastings College of the Law present a free screening of the new documentary, When Rules Don’t Apply, followed by a panel discussion.
For years, Apple’s Steve Jobs, Google’s Eric Schmidt and other hi-tech CEOs engaged in a conspiracy against their own employees, agreeing not to hire each other’s workers. The secret deal denied career advancement and better pay to the very people who made their companies successful. When tipped off, Justice Department lawyers used antitrust laws for the first time in a labor case to prosecute companies like Apple, Google, Pixar, Adobe, Intel, Intuit, and others. It’s a tale of greed, power, and arrogance, that reminds us that antitrust laws were created to protect our democracy.
MC: Rachael Myrow, KQED’s Interim Silicon Valley Bureau Chief
