Probably not a good idea to publicly slam the company that pays your bills and the CEO that signs…
Kris Gellci

I’m leaning toward agreeing with you Kris.

Here’s what I don’t see:

I don’t see where she ever says that she was told she’d move up into a better position before excepting the job. I don’t see where she sat down, did the math and looked at the reality of having to live with that wage for any length of time. When she loaded up her credit cards, did she know how long she’d be paying on them?

Yes, I feel bad for her… it’s not easy to realise you’re working 40hrs and can’t pay your bills/buy groceries/get that promotion.

But I also look at the other prospective: it seems she agreed to work at a salary that was below her income requirements, without anything more than a hope that one day funny tweets would have the way to more income.

*for the record, I’d also like to make $24,000 more a year to make memes and tweet. You know, in case anyone is hiring.
