Yelp Employee Gets Fired For Asking For Living Wage: Morning Roundup

A Yelp employee was fired after writing an open letter to her CEO on Medium.

Starbucks is changing its rewards program. Now, instead of earning a star for every purchase regardless of the price of the purchase, points will be earned by dollars spent. So, no more gaming the system on twice-daily tall coffees.

Have a tip we should know?
