Basecamp tire fire grows as employees tweet they're leaving the companyAs they have many times before, tech workers are once again taking a stand against controversial company policies and wishy-washy managerial strategies. This time, employees of decades-old software company Basecamp are quitting in protest of what one employee called a “tantrum” by management.

After a week of controversy that exposed racially insensitive actions that had carried on for years, and what staffers perceived as management’s discomfort with addressing them, multiple employees announced on Twitter that they were leaving Basecamp for good.

As a result of the recent changes at Basecamp, today is my last day at the company. I joined over 15 years ago as a junior programmer and I’ve been involved with nearly every product launch there since 2006.
