There's growing concern over Silicon Valley's two-tiered workforce: While some tech employees get to enjoy whimsical campuses, free or cheap gourmet lunches, and daily shuttles to work, others — contractors who work not for a tech company but for a staffing company — get far fewer perks.

Bloomberg focused on an office in Sunnyvale, California, near Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, operated by Apex Systems. Inside Apple, this office is reportedly called a "black site," a military term for a base where secret operations take place — the locations where the CIA tortured enemy combatants during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars were called "black sites."
