"On Friday, a Yelp/Eat24 employee wrote a blog post to her CEO about her
minimum wage compensation, which she said came out to about $8 an hour
after taxes. A few hours later, she was fired. It imploded certain
pockets of the postgrad internet and ignited a debate about how billion
dollar companies are getting away with paying minimum wage for their
lowest tier workers, especially in an area with a high cost of living."
The original article was a distressing but important condemnation of
Yelp and indeed other similar Silicon Valley employers. This article is
a lovely reply to a thoughtless and unkind response to the original.
