Spamming a Multi-Billion Dollar Company

Coder and TikToker, Sean Wiggs, regularly asks his followers to spam anti-union employers with fake job applications.

He’s part of an organization called Gen-Z For Change and earlier this year, as part of their campaign called Change is Brewing, Wiggs wrote a script that has been used to take on Starbucks. The bot let people flood the company with more than 140,000 fake job applications for positions at stores where union organizers had been fired.
