[Content Note: Class warfare; food insecurity.]

A Yelp! employee wrote an open letter to the company CEO detailing how her wages left her unable to afford even basic essentials, like enough food to eat.

About two hours after posting the piece, she was fired.

The CEO offered a statement which said in part: "I've not been personally involved in Talia being let go and it was not because she posted a Medium letter directed at me. Two sides to every HR story so Twitter army please put down the pitchforks."

Just a big old coincidence. Cool.
