"Okay. Time for public service announcement from Addison Wes, she did our listener the top of the show and that she said she runs to California reentry program. She was on the last episode talking about what happens when volunteers fall in love with someone in prison. So maybe one last question. That last thing you actor turned out to be also relevant to this episode. So we do get emails from people asking us about dating in prison, and they want to be a pen pal. And are they going to give somebody the wrong impression by being a pen pal? So what advice would you have for somebody who has met? They're they're not incarcerated in somebody in prison. Do you have any advice or somebody who wants to start dating someone in prison? What would you tell them? Probably the same. Dave Ning advice. I'd give anybody get to know them two years before you commit to any. I I mean, really I think it takes at least a year to scratch the surface of somebody. And in imprison, I'd say two years just because when you're out you can go out on three dates a week, if you want you can talk on the phone, you can text you can Email you can Facebook Instagram, you can all those other apps. There's a million ways that you can be in touch. You can meet his parents. He can meet your parents and in prison all of those things are impossible or extremely difficult in so. If you're going to date somebody in prison, you need to not be in a hurry. You need to be super super patient to get to know that person. And then the art of letter writing that's one thing this beautiful about percent. Is it the art of letter writing is still very much alive? You can draw pictures you can send photos you can write poetry. You can write stories you can write about your day. It's just such a beautiful way of getting to know somebody..

So as one spot is I think it's like one designated spot pitcher behind you can just stand in front of the pitcher take a pitcher in printed out for you right there, and you got a memorable moment. So Kevin gets pictures taken with these two women. And this is where the trouble begins for him the one that has been here for year. I like taking pictures with her. She gets a lot of a lot of guys. She's beautiful that other one she's beautiful in her own way. God and make no women. They are beautiful way. You know? But yeah, looks I know so, you know, we kicking imbibing annum may to pretty course for the holiday. I think it was merry Christmas and happy new year. So put a pitcher munition glady here. And then I put another pitcher in another young, lady and other one. And you know, I'm thinking everything just move. Okay. And getting ready for the criminal how they told the other one I need a package and. She's gonna see me to package. I told the other one I need some more strategy books. You know? So I'm you know, I'm I'm doing it. I'm like I'm on. I'm the man. So. I just had a bathroom. And I don't know what it was. I said it I mind, but I turned two million and. Magically they ended up at the same actress and about three days later. I get a dear John letter. Fuck you don't call me. No more. Hope you die. Got the pictures of me. I mean, she had pictures of both females in there. She told me don't call my phone. No more. She told me she died. She. Oh by and I'm not that handsome, and all, you know, everything you think you all at and I guess I'm gonna sign up for pen pal service or something. Because now, I'm only I don't know what. So I gotta find some more women. You know, what I learned from the stating story with? God didn't make any ugly women. But he sure as hell made some careless men. You know what? Thing process to have them for. Okay. I'm gonna leave that alone for now. But ten services that's something. A lot of people might not have heard of will everybody here know about them. Right. These services connect prisoners with people outside and is not always remains. But it is a good option for someone. That's looking for love. They get correspondence going. They start talking on the phone and pretty soon, you might have a date indivisible on the dance floor. And sometimes it works out. Hopefully, but it really does seem like guys meet a lot of women through friends like our young for Shelly here. She's she was real solid. He surprised you. I know earlier Nep Assode when he said he'd been dating I was shocked. So how'd you meet these other women other women, I met them to friend of a friend? Okay. So we've shot each other's info. And we started talking, and you know, I mean, it was it was it was just real into some good conversations. But the only thing was like I got to attached. I get like because I haven't been into that kind of relationship with anybody for so long that I felt like I was still a beginning. I didn't like it was all brand new to me all over again. Because like me just talking to her. We'd have all the mental things. But she wanted not just the mental. But the physical in understood that so. That is one of the hardest parts about dating from prison unless you're married and you're eligible for family visits. You're not having sex and any romantic relationship without that is hard to maintain and that proved to be fatal and Charlie's case as he learned one day on the phone..

"By hooking up with one of your friends, girl sisters or friends, you know, it can just be a hook up like that basically networking like you do on the outside networking so for this episode. We spoke with a lot of guys about their dating experiences and also about romance in general from prison and some of them knives. But some of them are good role models. Let's start with Charlie. And he may or may not be exemplary because the truth is he just hasn't had a lot of experience with women as we heard at the top of the podcast Charlie was fourteen when he came to prison. He's only twenty now when the tape started rolling. How was curious what does he say? When guys around him start talking about women because that's the subject of a lot of conversation. Oh, I bet it is. You know, I get into Gaijin conversation. But mostly like, I try to ask questions because I don't really know much about women like this. So when I do get into a conversation, I won't make the mistake of saying the wrong themes. So have you ever found yourself making up stories just to be in the conversation? Not really like I'll tell them about wish. Like, you know, what I'm saying? But it never happened. But I never said I did some I didn't do. So you ain't never lied on. You know, just Jake. I think I heard what she said. Oh, I've never expression before. So like, what do you think? Romance is. Well, I thought on will romance was at one point. But I don't know. I'm kind of confused this Levin romances same thing. Or is it two different things. Like remember when I was talking to somebody. They was like do you? Let me or is it just less like is just some foot of meantime, but I care for her a lot. So I'm pretty sure it wasn't just no less weight. So it sounds like are you do you? Have dating experiences in prison. I actually have. Well, that was a surprise wasn't this bras. As what we do. We're going to hear more from Charlie in a bit. But first we're going to hear from a guy with decades more experience with the ladies. Well, you know, what she's a little shot that more? So man, I thought she was my little chocolate chip. She was killed. You know, and my gab is good. You know what I'm saying? I'm small with the girls. So I. Harder. He told us a story that guy inside can tell sincere has been locked his twenty thirteen for two attempted murders. Here's what happened. He came home from work one day, and he found his wife in bed with another man shot them both. Luckily, they survived sincere was eventually arrested and sent to county jail while awaiting trial. And that's where he saw a story about a woman that really caught his attention. She was really young. And she was cool, and I seen her pitcher in the newspaper that she cured. Her her boyfriend at the rage of at a club. So I ended up getting information, and I end up writing her, and I said, look, I them sorry that you had a bad experience. But I also had that experience with my baby mother, and we kind of been writing back and forth. Okay. That is a lot to take in. So let's just to a little recap here e because he's a fast talker. Okay. Sincere tried to kill his wife and her lover. He's interested in woman who had succeeded in killing her boyfriend, and they started correspondence that's pretty much it she's in jail for women. And he's in jail for me. They both waiting for try, but still they figure out a way to me. She told me her date that she was going to court, and I was on the same bus. She was on. Huckabee on the same bus. You've got to explain this. Here's what court you're going to to sometime they'll put you on a big old greyhound bus where the men and women they caged off each other. Okay. Other times they'll put you on a smaller bus van and on those. There's no separation. That's the story. I told her to sit close to the guys, and I was gonna sit on the front row pushed everybody back. Let me get in..

"You know, Amazon's case, how many entry level jobs is Amazon actually have may have may have, you know, maybe they have more than we think. And therefore it had. More benefits potentially for unemployed or underemployed New Yorkers. The other issue would be you know, how good is your local workforce system of getting people into those jobs. A lot would depend on are able to get Amazon to seriously consider hiring currently unemployed underemployed people referred by the local workforce system, if we can't do that. I mean, we if we stent we can do that that makes it so much more progressive so progressivity is not necessarily baked in the job growth. It's something that policy can advance. I mean, if the local unemployment rate is higher you tend to have worked bogus civic a main because then there are more non employed to be hired, and you have more of an effect on that unless in migration to an area when you have job growth on the other hand, you don't want. It's really low you have more in migrate more upward pressure on housing prices. And a lot of the job growth just ends up increasing property values in Bethany people own property. Which is not the reason we want the purpose of economic development should not be to make capital gains for for property. That's not a sound public purpose. Why on earth should the general taxpayer pay to augment the wealth of property owners that doesn't make sense? And that's a great point in it and it supports. What was my biggest concern about this? Which is that it seemed like Amazon's HQ two might be a chance to build up some other city in the United States that could really use it and said it's gonna go to make the two of the richest cities in the country, even richer in employment right in this country. No, given of course, recent events or whatnot. We need to think seriously about how we deal with some of the geographic disparities we have in this country where there are places being left behind some of them are rule area. Some of them are cities. Some of them are neighborhoods, and we need to think a little bit about how we address that. I mean, are there ways we can either help increase skills that people in those places? Is so they can succeed better. Or other ways. We can in some cases increase jobs in those places. We need to think very seriously about how we help the places left behind because people there are somewhat better over the lack of economic journey. They face even when the national economy is doing well Timberlake. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you. We're going to take one final quick break.

"I mean, it would use out the entire state budgets. So I my prediction is ten fifteen years from now politicians are Wisconsin who voted for this package, only pretending they never heard of it and people will point to this. Zastava the FOX gun case. The other issue is half the package doesn't depend on jobs grade. It just depends on best -ment. So a FOX goes in. And they robotics is this factory. So that the whole factory is being run by. Well, this is extreme that it's being run by one executive in China remotely, and it's all robots Wisconsin. We'll still have to pay half the money two billion for what no jobs. Just robots why that would be considered a good idea. Now who knows what's going to happen? I I don't know his the future of robotics in making flat screen TV's. Maybe Foxconn is not sure what the future robotics make your plan screen TV's out Rapley that technology will improve. But surely, there's a substantial risk that. In fact, the number of jobs created will be far less than promise. And so this won't be ten times usual package, this might end up being twenty or thirty. It'll be it'll be ill. You'll become a uh. People point us for years is what you shouldn't do an economic development. All right bringing good robots. But it's hard to see what the overall public good is of this bidding war between cities. I mean, sure maybe you can make the case for it in one city or another maybe the city that lands Amazon's headquarters will be better off in some way. But wouldn't we all be better off if there was no bidding war in the first place in Amazon just had to choose the city that worked best for it without getting them all to compromise their their tech structures and so forth. Well, there could be a game. If in fact, this this competition was something where the places with the highest unemployment or bidding the most. So you could say, well, gee, there's this competition, and at least what's going on as the place of the high unemployment or bidding more, and they're getting more jobs, and they need the jobs, and the places that already have jobs or not bidding. But that's not what's going on. It looks like a governor in mayor regards unemployment rate is is just wrong. Like a moth to the flame to. Wanna make these huge cash bids for large companies, especially long term incentive offers that someone some future government has to pay for. So, you know, we have this problem that the evidence suggests that every city and state does this. There's no sign that the more disadvantaged areas are benefiting so the only real solution to it is some type of federal regulation of it to hold back. The problem the challenges we have state sovereignity in the in the US, we have it all we Milana. What happens the US would says it be illegal in the opinion? Right. So let me ask you one more question one. I have a feeling my co-host April Glaser would ask if he was here who benefits from these jobs. I mean, I guess it depends on what type of jobs, they are Amazon, obviously has headquarters in Seattle. And that's done. One thing to Seattle Seattle's economy in real estate in a lot of other cities across the country. It has distribution warehouses. It's. Announced in fact, today as we're recording this announced that it will build a logistics hub in Nashville have you done any work on on what type of people benefit from jobs when a company is bought to ten brought to town. I've done work on that. I mean on the whole it looks as up job growth tends to have somewhat progressive effects on the issue of income and the sense that it helped tends to help the lowest the lower income quintiles like the bottom three festively income distribution the bomb. Sixty percent tends to benefit more than the top forty percent. Because the top forty percent presumably already had good jobs, did they tend to be more than non employed, and so the people in the bottom sixty percent, either tend to be on employ more are more likely to be unemployed or underemployed. Now, I do think it matters what the jobs are. So that's why I asked this Abassahs question..

"There's no complicated services to figure out and you can pass on a lot of the cost to the next governor a mayor whereas trying to. Figure out how to create a common ecosystem for start up businesses for small businesses for medium sized businesses, a lot more complicated, and it's harder to explain to the public to the news media, it there's not as many the ribbon cutting for Amazon will Shirley got more attention than the ribbon cutting for well. There isn't a ribbon cutting when you start up one hundred small businesses or expand one hundred small there's no ribbon cutting, right? And that actually brings up another instance of city subsidies to accompany that I wanted to bring up Wisconsin under governor Scott Walker had offered a massive package of subsidies to Foxconn the Chinese manufacturing giant, which among other things helps to manufacturer apple products to come and locate in their state governor Walker is no longer the governor in Wisconsin after the midterms imagined that this huge package of four point one billion dollars in subsidies, which some have called a boondoggle will now get more scrutiny. Have you looked at what might be? The cost of benefits for Wisconsin there. And whether it's a wise move on their part. I don't think there's any way that kind deal is going to pay off Wisconsin you ever joined the Foxconn deal was way beyond even any of the Amazon offices for as you can figure out. I mean, the typical incentive offering the US is equivalent to giving up. Three percent weighed subsidy for about twenty years, FOX kinds over thirty percent of wages for twenty years. That's was equivalent to. It's over ten times, the usual thing is think about it. The government cannot go around offering every company or even every manufacturing company or even every new manufacturing company thirty percent of wages at some point, you might as well just hire people directly. I mean, and you can't afford to do it..

"Well, my main point has been episode is that the reason you might wanna do incentives is you want to have your local labor market. You want to increase the ratio of employment population, you want to put up with pressures on real wages? That's the real benefit of making more and better jobs for the whole population. You know, a lot of times you hear claims that this is going to raise all this revenue, and there's no cost to these incentives because you're gonna get all this tax revenue that wa- Senate that's mostly wrong because it doesn't take account. The fact that new jobs attract people and people expect services, and so a lot of times the increase services cost you more in increase tax revenue, but if you are able to create jobs that local residents can have access to. To you can't do some really good things for job opportunities for for the the unemployed or the under employed in the case of Amazon, the real issue for that is though how many entry level jobs other actually in these facilities are the are. They just going to bring in people from outside for these jobs, or are there many jobs left for local runs. That's a great question. Of course, New York City and DC had no shortage of high paying jobs already win a city competes to bring a headquarters to town. You mentioned there that there can be pitfalls. What sort of a worst case scenario in terms of let's say a city offered all these tax breaks Amazon moved to town. You know, what's the downside? Well, the worst case scenario would be that essentially employment population boasts go up by the same percent. So you haven't improve your layer Mark at all. And it's still worst case scenario would be what if you paid for the incentives by cutting back on say public schools. I mean, there's more economic development than handing out cash to competence. What what really drives a local economy. It's a variety of things. But the skills of the local workforce are absolutely key. If you have lousy schools that can that that has more consequences for your long term economic development, then whether or not you hand out a lot of cash to a food few competence, right? So if cities have to compromise funding for their schools to attract the company that could be a net loss, maybe any city that was trying to do that should be thankful that they didn't get the Amazon headquarters, but I've been thinking about this a little bit. Because when you think of some of the cities that today are rated the best places to live a lot of times, they have a big high profile employer there sort of an anchor. I'm wondering like let's say Rochester, Minnesota, I don't know if they had offer incentives to the mayo clinic all those decades ago. But now that it's there I mean, it really drives the local economy, and it seems to be a very highly rated place to live is it possible that there are sort of gains that are hard to measure in the short term to a city's prestigious reputation. It's maybe. The wealthy locals who can fund local institutions that kind of thing. I don't think that's true for Anna's on New Yorker DC. They have plenty of large businesses large organizations that provide anchors. I can see that would be true for a small town. I mean, you have a small town, and there was a major employer. That's lost. That's devastating and vice versa. If you're a small rural county, and you attract a major employer that pays decent wages. That that's stronger transformation for the community. But I think for most larger cities the more reliable way to promote long-term growth is Matt so much putting bets on a few big companies, but trying to grow your small medium size is trying to encourage startups trying to courage expansions of existing business. I mean, most cities of any.

So they did not decide thus far to raise the level of the chief diversity officer to be reporting to the CEO. There is someone in surprisingly, no Google employee on Google's board as of this time. From talking to both employees have Google and some people involved in an organization called the tech workers coalition. I think one concerned that employees are going to be pushing with Google is the differentiation between how temps vendors and contractors are treated at the company, and how employees are treated at the company, especially because like I said before there there is a gender and racial difference between those two groups of people, and then there's also a great difference in compensation protections benefits. And I think that some of the Google earth who are employees are starting to get uncomfortable with those differences, and I think some of the contractors are starting to get fed up really frustrated so after the walkout, the will go will announced some of the changes that it would be making especially around arbitration other things to do with their process in. They sent Sinndar CEO sent out an Email to to staff about the changes that contractors didn't. Receive? You know, an contractors were not invited to go to the town hall meeting where executives tried to address the different claims and everything that had happened the walkout to apologize. All of those things are not something that the temp vendors and contractors are included in like I said they make up more than half of the people who are working at Google. So I think from what I've heard I would expect to see more pushback around that. Although it's at this point something that's so embedded into the way, the goals businesses structured, I don't know considering legally, you know, the legal definitions about what you can and can't provide people with I don't know that we would expect that I would expect to see that change super quickly. But I do think that it's something that will continue to hear conversations about especially just because there are so many of those people on Google's campus, you mentioned people sharing their stories during the walkout, some of the people who got up and spoke with a woman who works as a barista on Google's campus, and she was describing being harassed by custom. Over there. You know? So I think there is an effort to try to show that just because people have different legal standing with the company's HR department doesn't necessarily mean that they don't experience the culture in the same way, and, you know, have the same consequences. That's a great point. I've really appreciated your reporting over the years on the relationship between labor and Silicon Valley a lot of it was on the gig economy and people who are not employers at these companies now, we're also seeing a lot of changes in the relationship between employees and the companies with employees trying to flex their muscle and affect policy change killing. Donovan thank you so much for joining us on if then thanks for having me. All right. We're gonna take a quick break.

"But I wanted to to highlight the point you made about how it was not just an isolated case of of Andy Rubin did something. Bad and Google handled it badly, Google if you read stories about the early days of Google, there was all kinds of stuff going on in terms of sex and relationships that should not be going on in an office. And it was kind of I think it was the culture not to say that everybody did this individually, but the culture at large kind of laughed it off for a while. Like, oh, you know, those nerds with their lack of inhibition. And now, we're at a moment where nobody's laughing that stuff off anymore. Definitely has to do with me too movement. But yeah, let's talk about what has changed. I know that one of the demands that Google seated to was the end of binding arbitration in sexual harassment cases, why was that important the issue of four star betray patrician isn't interesting one. Basically, it's his question of if you sue your employer, your former employer, if you've signed an arbitration clause, they can have the case removed from the court, and basically the negotiations any settlement all of that has to happen behind closed doors. So this is. The same trend in legal contracts that his lead to things like the Uber misclassification loss theater and mother drivers should be considered dependent. Contractors employees arbitration clauses have been used there to shut those cases down unto get the the classes dissolved to that individuals have to negotiate with Uber individually. Right. It's the same thing. But now going forward in cases of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct. Google is saying they will waive those agreements for employees who want to sue that means that those cases the evidence all of that would play out in public format. And what's interesting is that since Google made that announcement Facebook has followed suit Airbnb has followed suit. So what we're starting to see I think is shift in the trend there. Of course, I would say that an important caveat is like who gets to determine whether a a lawsuit or a specific case meet. It's the standard for that. Is that the company that gets to decide or what a court get to decide short of remains to be seen? But just I think the fact of having those allegations in public would make a big difference because I think like I said there's a difference between rumors some of the things that were in the near times article had been rumors bouncing around inside of Google. But the question of actually having it on the record for everyone to see in everyone to have the same information does make a big difference. And I think you know, you mentioned the culture at Google being sort of wild back in the day. And I think people do talk about companies maturing, right? Like the culture changing in all of that. But I think what the New York Times article sort of highlighted in what beat people react so strongly is that they really laid out the difference in consequences for the men involved versus the women involved. Right. A man gets ninety five million dollar payout. A woman ends up leaving the company in you know, her. Career in law does not progress nearly to the degree of the Manchus involved in a romantic relationship with right? A culture can mature and change. But I think for the individuals involved you start to see a pattern where the the women are sort of struggling more in their careers are not receiving the same rewards as the men are a great point. And of course, it goes beyond just Google. The tech industry isn't the only industry this with this problem, but it is certainly a really serious gender imbalance in Silicon Valley, and especially at the highest levels of tech companies. And it seems like that trickles down throughout the culture. And you report it at the time when you went to the walkouts some of the women employees of Google at the walkouts were sharing their stories of being sexually harassed within the company..

"I will say that my favorite sign from the walkouts last week was probably the one that said, not okay. Google has joke. I think about a Google voice assist. That's right. I used to have to say, okay. Google all the time to my Google home before I traded it in front, Alexa. Okay. We'll talk first about what the immediate cause of the walkout. There was as New York Times story, which I've mentioned about Andy Rubin about Google's handling of sexual harassment. Cases. What did the employers who walked out one? What were their demands? Yeah. So I think one thing that's interesting about that New York Times story is that some of the information some of the allegations had already been bubbling around for a couple of years in Google employees were aware in some cases of things that had happened. The actual financial settlement that any ribbon in particular. God, I don't think had been made public. But it's interesting to think about I think how the climate inside the. Industry, and then the metoo movement more nationally kind of influenced how people interpreted that story. I think an an and led to this sort of severity in the way that people responded, which of course, was the walkout which included a list of demands. So one of the first things employees wanted was didn't end to forced arbitration when it comes to cases of sexual harassment. So allowing employees and former employees to actually sue the company they wanted a change in in process for reporting sexual misconduct and sexual harassment. So specific there is like they wanted to be able to bring a support person with them to HR when reporting an incident some kind of describe that to me is like when you're going into HR, sometimes it feels like you against the whole company just one person against this gigantic firm and just having their support. You kind of like a patient advocate in the hospital right helps helps sort of to make that process feel a little bit stronger on the side of the complaint in. I think they also. Asked for the chief diversity officer to report directly to the CEO, which would be an effective promotion of that position. They wanted a an employee to have a seat on Google's board. In addition to making sure that what Google calls TV sees which are temps vendors and contractors, so not direct employees actually make up one half of the people who worked for Google right now, they wanted to make sure that those people were involved in the same system of reporting that employees are right. So that those people who have lay tend to be women people of color get the same treatment. But also, I think so that all the information is centralized, right? And you don't end up with like missing cases or stuff like that. So I think those are some of the main things that people were asking for and then of course, we will responded, and they got some but not most of those demands met, right? So let's talk about that in the second..

"Online misinformation and potential problems with voting technology. Suffice it to say both of those issues proved relevant. We didn't least see some progress from Facebook in particular on the misinformation front, that's according to multiple studies that found less fake news on. The platform in two thousand eighteen than was there in two thousand sixteen and twenty seventeen if you're interested. I wrote a piece for slate last week, headlined, why social media's misinformation problem will never be fixed. It's not very optimistic. I know. But actually, the takeaway was that barring some fundamental changes to the structure of social media. This is going to be for the foreseeable future. A problem to be managed rather than solved and Facebook is working on that. At sei, guess all we can ask for now. So as you know, by now, if you're a regular listener, we'll have more to come on the topics of online platforms and misinformation, but right now, I want to move away from social media and the elections and talk about Google on November first employers in Google offices around the world staged a walkout walkouts at its offices in Singapore. Japan, Israel, Switzerland, Germany, the UK and Ireland, but the biggest walkouts were reported from its California headquarters in Mountain View, and San Francisco and its New York offices. The walkout was prompted in part by New York Times story about Andy Rubin. The so. Called father of Android. The times reported that Google had received a credible claim of sexual misconduct by Ruben against another ghoul employees. And instead of firing him the company paid him a ninety million dollar exit package, give him a hero's. Farewell and kept the whole thing. Quiet following the walkouts on November eighth Google announced changes to its misconduct policy in particular. It said that it would end binding arbitration in sexual harassment cases, Facebook followed suit shortly thereafter, and we're lucky enough to be joined now by somebody who's been watching all of this very closely. Carolina. Donovan is a senior technology reporter for BuzzFeed news. She's forged. Something of unique beat her time at BuzzFeed focusing specifically on labor issues in Silicon Valley in the tech industry. She was at the walkouts last week where she reported that employees were holding signs such as hey, hey, ho, ho creepy. Dudes have got to go somewhere holding signs that said don't be evil, which of course, is a wry reference to what used to be Google's unofficial motto. We've heard that when thrown back at the company quite a bit lately. Anyway. We're lucky to have Caroline with us. Now joining us via Skype in San Francisco. Thanks for coming on. Thanks for having me..
