I don’t think she missed the point at all. Yelp is not responsible for Talia’s woes, Talia is responsible for them. She was not forced to move, to accept that job…etc.
If Talia was attempting to shine a light on the difficulty of living on a minimum wage in the bay area, she failed miserably. She came off entirely as Stephanie described, entitled and unwilling accept the consequences of her poor decision making — including writing a public letter where the only guaranteed outcome was loss of the job she was complaining about.
