Google Labeling Employees In Caste System?

Over the weekend a somewhat shocking and confusing video was released by recently fired Googler Andrew Normal Wilson. The video was named Workers Leaving The Googleplex.

It basically shows how Googlers are given different color badges. Each color determines the level of access and privileges they are given. The video documents how Yellow badge workers are treated compared to others.

The thing is, yellow badge workers may not officially be Googlers. They are hired not just only by Google but also by Transvideo Studios. They do the book scanning work in a separate Google building and od not get Googleer privileges, like free food and access to Google shuttles.

Personally, I am not sure what to make of this. Just seems very weird.
