At what point will we acknowledge that Mark Zuckerberg has too much power, and abuses that power without hesitation or conscience? Having worked as an employment lawyer for almost 30 years, these complaints sound valid. Mark and Priscilla's response is tone-deaf and hostile. I hope that every employee in the multi-national, multi-billion-dollar ring of companies, entities, and "nonprofits" designed to further the personal interests and unfathomable wealth of Mark and Priscilla speak up about their mistreatment. Sounds like Mark's personal companies treat workers even worse that Facebook (I mean "Meta") does - a bar one would think could not be lower.

WSJ had fantastic coverage of Mark Zuckerberg's many bad acts: Web Link

Billionaires can afford to treat their employees with respect and dignity. But if they did, they probably would not have been able to become billionaires. It is up to us to reign in this megalomaniac and narcissist who is poisoning our children, our democracy, and our communities. We deserve much better than what Zuck has to give.

Don't forget how Zuckerberg began his career, in college.
He set up a database for the boys to rate their female
classmates on how 'hot' they were. A public database.
Public humiliation of others has never been a problem for Zuckerberg.
And lack of empathy.
