Google can do any ddamned thing it wants and no one can or will stop them.
A judge could assign a billion dollars a day fine. The officers can be sent to jail.

But they didnt refuse a summons.

Yeah, that means sensitive data is there for the asking. No thanks.
OK. Then Kamala Harris' proposal might provide the legislative incentive for companies to provide the salary data which would otherwise require a court order. You're making the case for why the proposal might be warranted. According to you, companies don't want to give sensitive data if they're not required. (I'm not convinced that's true.) This proposal creates a requirement.

I didn't post that Google refused a summons. I posted that Google refused to give the government information.

The only person talking about a summons is you.

And rightfully so. You just seem anti-Google.

I posted an article that had similar circumstances to the linked article that someone recently posted about Harris proposal. The company in the article that had circumstances similar to Harris' proposal happened to be Google. I didn't post about my feelings or thoughts about Google in this thread one way or the other. The topic of the discussion is Harris' proposal, not my feelings about Google.
