Advocates urge the Biden administration to reject Big Tech appointments to his cabinet

In a letter to President-elect Biden, consumer and privacy advocates urged the President-elect to avoid appointing representatives from tech giants like Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google to his cabinet. These companies represent serious threats to privacy, democracy, innovation and to Americans’ economic well-being. Advocates warned that representatives from these companies should not hold positions of power within our government. Instead, advocates urged Biden to assemble a team of advocates that will represent working Americans and not the Big Tech companies that work to exploit them.

Consumer Action joined privacy and consumer advocates in urging President-elect Joe Biden to fill his cabinet with leaders who will champion working Americans instead of representatives from Big Tech that have made billions off the exploitation of people’s privacy and economic well-being.
