In a surprising turn of events, Google laid off unionized YouTube Music workers in Austin, Texas, during a city council meeting last week. The council was set to discuss a resolution urging Google to negotiate with the workers' union. However, as union member Jack Benedict spoke, his colleague Katie Marner interrupted, revealing, "Not to interrupt, but they just laid us all off. Our jobs are ended today. Effective immediately." Consequently, the resolution was postponed.
