Google Inequality: Turns out not everyone gets to enjoy all of the enviable Google employee perks. This class of employees wears yellow badges, and they are in charge of data-entry labor. They work in 3.14159~ factory (sounds grim), away from the rest of the white badges (full-time employees), red badges (contractors) and green badges (interns). Former Google contractor Andrew Norman Wilson noticed this Google lower class and decided to document their comings and goings from 3.14159~ factory.
