    Lol this is been going on for last 7 yrs in Sunnyvale . They used to pay very well for contractors even in 2005 . All changed after 2011 . All these Indian consulting firms bend over and accepted very low rates . There is no parking lot or restrooms or cafeteria for contractors . Google treats its employees and contractors the same - free food . Apple is worse than Foxconn in treating contractors.

      Actually I thought food was billed by Google to the contractor company for Taxes purpose?
      (And possible because giving employee perks to contractor maybe illegal and lead to requalify contractors as employees)

      Google treats their contractors like shit. Aside from food, you are constantly reminded that you are not one of them.

      Apple is very careful with money for all employees and contractors. They pay as low as they can.

    OP
    Never thought a company like Apple will treat its contractor's (which are also their employees) this badly.

      As a “black site” employee non-contractor they gave us free food since Cafe Macs was far away.

    I worked on the special projects team at a “black site” they have those buildings for special projects to maintain secrecy, however the shuttles make stops there so it’s not THAT secretive.

    Lol it applies to all the contractors buildings in Sunnyvale . Just go and check the buildings in Arques Avenue.
