This company raised minimum wage to $70,000 — and it helped business
In 2015, Gravity Payments CEO Dan Price announced he would raise the company’s minimum wage to $70,000 a year by 2017 and slash his own compensation by more than 90 percent.

Nice reminder with some beautiful images from +Marianna Paulson ...
 
Beauty is all around us. Pause and enjoy.
Two upward glances, one last evening, and one very early this morning, almost brought me to tears. The sun was just setting as I pulled into our driveway last evening. I was awestruck by the way in which just the tree tops were bathed in a golden light. (The light had already changed by the …

Story
Tagline
Career development coach, writer, workplace coach, cat lover, reluctant foodie, and avid Brooklynite.
Introduction
As the founder of the popular career blog Work Coach Café (which I sold in 2011), I am proud to say I now have a new career blog called Career Nook. I have an MBA in Finance as well as a B.A. in Theater with a minor in Psychology, and have worked in academia, government, private industry and the non-profit world. More recently, I completed a certificate in Career Planning and Development at NYU.

I've always been fascinated by the world of careers, and spent many years working as a management / business process consultant who was often asked to help with the hiring process as well as internal coaching, things I loved doing. I now offer private career and job search coaching services, and can be contacted through my Career Nook website for more information about that:
