#Microsoft #Apple #Google etc have massive piles of "cash on hand". They are supposed to be innovative companies which hire as much talent as they can, so something is clearly wrong with this picture. Lots of skilled people also have morals, and want to build things they believe are beneficial and #ethical. So many developers would rather work on things they believe in and are willing to get paid a fraction of what they could earn: so they reject working for #BigTech
Love how some guy out there unironically wrote this piece with a "won't anybody think of the poor investors!" spin.
But seems nice that these companies can't find a way to transform their cash into market power. Maybe some of them will go into the claw-back-every-dollar-for-investors-while-shitting-themselves-to-death spiral soon.
