Cool, try living in Burlington on $14hr

"These employees make it break..." haha haha. You can tell exactly what an employer thinks about these employees by how close to McDonald's they pay. You get $12 around here to flip burgers. With ZERO experience or technical know-how.

If I were talking to my rep about skis I’d want to FaceTime / phone while he’s on the hill, if im I’m not skiing with him ! It’s a slippery slope, working from home on a mobile device....

We have a very successful winter 1/4 taking phone calls, composing emails and texts from the chairlift, it works.
