To get a Microsoft job, says Mike Blain in the Communications Workers of America newsletter, "you come into Microsoft and interview with a guy. He wants to hire you, so he sends you to a temporary agency. They hire you and send you back." Now Blain, a former editor of technical material for Microsoft, is using e-mail and the Internet to help organize Microsoft workers under the CWA. Organizers have met with Microsoft employees and held meetings at the King County Labor Council. "Our labor is very much in demand," adds Blain, "and we're going to exploit that as much as we can."
