I don't care what anyone says, a full time position at $12.50/hr is less than $20K annually after taxes. She can not drink all the Kambucha in the world, that's still not gonna be enough to live on anywhere in the Bay Area.
Yall grilling her for living beyond her means and need to be on her about her employment situation.
Yelp recruits so aggressively, know a handful of people some with degrees in pottery, who's first job out of school was with Yelp. They were still getting twice what ol girl was making.
Instead of drafting a letter *****ing at her boss she should have picked up the phone and asked HR about exit opportunities to sales.
I'm sorry but in 2016 if you're a grown person in the Bay Area, you must not have a single hustle firing neuron in your brain if you're stuck make $12/hr.
There's plenty of grown people in the bay area making the $12.25 min wage man. There's no need for all that
