The Underground Collective (trailer)

An anonymous group of janitors that take joy in airing their employers' dirty laundry may have gone a little too far.

I have an "ethical infraction" I'd like to report.

@e_sherrwood

Our employer, ABC possesses knowledge that the Havel Dam, under construction by B division, has design faults that could lead to collapse.

Dude, WHAT? (???) (???!!!!!????!!!!!) Where'd you get this from?

@snowfelt

What are you doing? You need to delete this until we talk about it.

@e_sherrwood

Too late now. #Undergroundcollective

@e_sherrwood this is a serious allegation. Is this really the best way to deal with it?

Ed3n
@e_sherrwood

I know this is serious. Over 13000 people live in Havel, you're risking their lives with this project.

Mr J
@j_abc

If you had any real evidence, you'd take it to the police. This vigilante thing isn't going to make real change

Ch@rL1e
@snowfelt

This is one of the largest companies worldwide. How could there be real accountability? If we weren't needed, we wouldn't be here.

Keeping employees from sharing their salaries also prevents gender and racial pay gaps from coming to light.

Ch@rL1e
@snowfelt

@hecklesburg, can you do some digging for us?

Mr J
@j_abc

@hecklesburg Digging? Does this mean you're a member of the IT department? (Might explain the immaturity...)

Later that week

@snowfelt

@e_sherrwood Where are you? I'm at the usual place

Ed3n
@e_sherrwood

I am following our primary directive. I really don't know what the rest of you are doing.

Mr J
@j_abc

Oh, I think I know where she is. Earlier today we announced a meeting in conference room AA, section C3i, to discuss the Havel Dam. I wondered if one of you would swing by.

Ch@rL1e
@snowfelt

@e_sherrwood get out NOW he knows where you are

The next day

@snowfelt

We have more power than you think. Walk away from this or you're going to have problems.

Mr J
@j_abc

Consider me very scared. If you'll excuse me, we're going to start a security sweep soon. And we will find you.

Ch@rL1e
@snowfelt

You should be scared, Jason Greener of Harlen Street, South Liberty.

Mr J
@j_abc

So you've looked for people in HR starting with J and made a guess. Well done.

Ch@rL1e
@snowfelt

Yeah... and that you changed your name from Jackson Jr to Jason when you were 18? Did I guess that too?

Mr J
@j_abc

Where did you get that information?
