Google is hiring security guards to protect its work buses in San Francisco following protests over tech workers driving up city rents

The Daily Mail reports:
First, San Francisco-based commuters to Google Inc got buses with plush seats and free WiFi. Now, they are getting security.

In recent days, men with earpieces have closely monitored passengers boarding Google commuter buses at the site of at least one bus stop in San Francisco's Mission District.

Their presence comes a few weeks after Google buses were targeted by protesters who blame tech-industry employees for rising city rents.
