There is no doubt that Elizabeth Warren raised her eyebrows earlier this month when she revealed her plans to divide some of the largest US tech companies. When the senator announced their bid for the 2020 Presidential nomination, he specifically named Google, Amazon and Facebook as too powerful and a monopoly. For some people in San Francisco, however, their suggestions go too far.
Talking to Bloomberg a number of Bay Area voters expressed reluctance to support Warren's plan to break up the great tech giants of Silicon Valley.
A tech consultant agreed that some tech companies have far too much power, but splitting those companies would go a step too far. Another voter who works in marketing reiterated this, saying it was brave to go against some of the world's largest companies, but their plans were not the solution they needed.
Many residents of San Francisco who were being talked to participated in a rally for Andrew Yang, another of the Democratic presidential hopefuls. Therefore, it is not surprising that most of the feelings expressed are more in line with his views. However, it was a decent account of the response of those largely dependent on the tech industry on Warren's original platform.
Former entrepreneur Yang has become particularly popular among the generations of the Internet, mainly because of his proposals for a universal basic income. Citizens receive a minimum of $ 1
Instead of disrupting technology giants, Yang supports the view that combating income inequality would help potential entrepreneurs and small businesses better. Warren wants to reactivate this.
