Haha. Good one. More like, “We look forward to lining our pockets with legal fees while our clients receive peanuts.”

“… the workers sue as a group, and pursue what the defendants said could exceed $9 billion of damages.”

Those same workers made you more than $9 billions dollars in profits. Pay them their fair share!

I agree and think the employees have a reason to gripe. I once worked for a contract company and wanted to leave in order to continue growing my career. I applied at two different local companies and they both openly admitted that they could not hire me because of contracts made between the companies to not poach employees. This is illegal, yet these companies get away with it.

Perfect justice. If you cheat to get a job or school, in over your head. If you bargain hard for high salary, boss treats you worse. If you marry not you equal but higher, living hell. Perfect justice.

This is ever a possibility in the creative talent market. It is ever a complex issue, especially where issues of R & D are concerned. As employees are engaged in developing new technology or applications, corporate secrets, design, and/or strategy can be involved. This will not be resolved easily or quickly. Repercussions and related law suits will go on for a decade or more.
