Talking point: Tech employees are growing increasingly vocal in criticizing their employers. Earlier this week, a group of Facebook content moderators accused their employer of being manipulated by U.S. President Donald Trump.

This letter calls for a larger number of additional reforms including permitting a four-day work week and having executives call for the resignation of Seattle’s mayor.
