Salesforce workers ask CEO to reconsider border patrol contracts


INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Salesforce employees are protesting the company’s involvement in providing the border patrol with technology.

Employees of the cloud computer company signed a letter to the CEO, Marc Benioff, asking him to reconsider the company’s contracts with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The company has headquarters in San Francisco and employs a large workforce in Indiana’s tallest building, Chase Tower in downtown Indianapolis. Salesforce’s name is atop Chase Tower.

More than 650 employees signed the letter, according to news outlets Bloomberg and Buzzfeed. 

The employees are especially concerned about Salesforce’s service cloud being used in border activities.
