So, someone wrote something on the internet …
Her company didn't like it and fired her.
PS, she isn't the only person who got fired after getting pissed off and writing something unflattering about her bosses: hello, Melissa Harris-Perry, formerly of MSNBC.
Unleash the maelstrom …
I can't even begin to capture the back and forth of all this. (My mini-take: everyone has a right to a living wage, but in this country not at whatever job they want and on all of their own terms. Paying your dues for a year or more is real; but so is empathy, and I suspect the circumstances that got her to the unworkable situation that led to her Medium post are unfortunate and not entirely of her own doing. The post was a bad idea, but blazing honesty usually is.)
Much, much more, here. This, IMHO, is what Medium was meant for: medium- and long-form conversation and engagement across the intertubes.
