Apple Fighting Off Wage-Fixing Suit

Many of the major tech companies have now been accused of working in a no-poaching scheme, along with low wages, as a part of a settlement.

Apple Balla reports that the settlement was settled out of court for $324 million, although at least one programmer isn’t happy with that amount. The employee thinks that 65,000 employees being paid only a few thousand dollars each isn’t enough to make up for the actions, especially when the law firms are going to be receiving an estimated $75 million of that money. Michael Devine says that the case should be going to court if it is going to be finished properly, which is why he is asking the US District Court Judge to hear the case and have a “chance at real justice.”

The case was to go to trial at the end of the month, where the settlement would be sought in the range of $3 billion. The evidence that they believe warranted that kind of settlement comes after the release of several emails between the companies. In particular, there was an exchange between Apple CEO Steve Jobs and then-CEO of Google Eric Schmidt. In the exchange, Jobs complained of Google hiring an employee, after which time Google promised to fire the former Apple employee.

That kind of damming evidence could be a problem for Apple, although the case might still not ever appear in court. Stay tuned to find out what might happen or if we’ll see a larger settlement coming out of this.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
