On Wednesday, according to CNBC Beijing time, Google expanded in the San Francisco Bay area on Wednesday to become a hot topic of the company's annual shareholders' meeting, with about 50 local residents protesting outside the meeting, and at the meeting, two shareholders questioned the impact of the expansion plan on local residents.
Google plans to build a large office park in San Jose, which is the focus of the debate, which will accommodate 15 thousand to 20 thousand employees, including offices, retail space and thousands of residential units. Earlier this year, San Jose agreed to sell $nine to Google for $67 million for the construction of the project.
Supporters expect this large park to revitalize San Jose. The latter is the only big city in the United States with more nighttime population than in the daytime. Critics worry that it will aggravate local aristocracy and inequality.
