Go employees! Show management that you won't be exploited anymore.

It actually sounds like a lot of Sili Valley & nonprofit positions, minus the perks. I take it these are non-exempt employees vs techs who rent stations?

Yet another reason not to frequent this establishment, the first being that a friend of mine is still recovering from the serious, hideous fungal infection she got at the Natalie's San Mateo from her pedicure.

I have been to Natalie Salon for many years and happened to get to know the owners well. They were immigrants themselves but they work hard and always strive to do their best for their employees. The employees love to work at their shop. However, a few of them turned their back against the owner due to jealousy. These few individuals also stole customers from the Salon and started a new nail shop across from Natalie Salon in Redwood City.
