Non-Hiring Pratice

by @ 2:48 pm. Filed under Technology

Actually, I had made up my mind to blog on registry operations today…that was until a story on today’s early morning TV news caught my attention. It involved Google, Apple, Yahoo and other technology companies. Believe it or not…US regulators are looking into the hiring practices of these three huge Internet companies…or I should say their “non-hiring” practices. You see, one source close to the investigation (no, not Mark Felt) says these companies agreed not to hire/recruit each other’s employees. Google doesn’t go after Apple’s smart people and Apple won’t go after Google’s smart people. What, I thought! That’s got to be illegal. And yes, theFeds agree…you can’t do it. Now, I must say (if this is true) I am a little disappointed in Google especially. I love that company. I call it the SkyNet (Terminator I) of our world. It is the Goliath of the technology world . Google shouldn’t need to resort to unethical and/or illegal practices to remain dominant. Lets put this whole thing in perspective…imagine someone excels as a hotdog vendor at Fenway Park and the people that run Fenway make an agreement with the people that run Yankee stadium…you don’t hire our good dog cooks and we won’t hire your good dog cooks…I’ll bet you agree with me…if someone can grill a great dog he/she deserves the compensation the market place can bring.
