Re: Minimum wage actually means $0 in the US

The minimum wage everywhere is always $0.

If government regulation prevents an employer from hiring someone without paying them more than they're worth, they don't hire them at all.

This is why jurisdictions like Portland see a stampede of entry level employers for the exit when they drink the 'living wage' koolaid.

Yelp isn't a viable business in the long run, so Talia needed to leave anyway. A shame someone who thinks she's should be paid lots of money to do media for a reputation company, wasn't bright or savvy enough to realize trying to publicly shame an already reviled company could only impact her reputation, not theirs.
