“Cooperatively calling for a fair workplace reflects a basic human desire to care for others in a mutually supportive way.”
I’m not sure that Google would be high on my personal list of employers showing the way forward for workers’ relations, but there is a recent Aeon article that is well worth a read from the perspective of fairness and industrial relations.
