A CEO gives away the game in a series of tweets 

I love when people tell me CEOs have to make the salaries they do so we can attract top talent... Who then turns around and farms out what limited "boss work" there is to do to others

The punchline: she goes on to say the executive assistant is a distance worker based in the Philippines. I'd be shocked if this person who does 60% (conservatively) of the bosses tasks makes a twentieth of what she makes

A startup CEO like this one ate years of my friend's life until she was at the bottom of a mental health crisis and too broke to feed herself. I can't tell you how I despise these people

This one might actually make you too mad. 

Because I'm grinding my teeth to stumps

Looking at what her company actually does 

Ok so translating this from tech jerkoff lingo, doesn't this just sound like "digital snitch maker"?

Show thread

She had a previous company 

Called Joany. It went tits up and they laid off 70 people after squandering the $25 million they raised on things like "absurd chairs, murals in the office painted by the spouses of leadership, trips to Cabo, a bloated headcount, nepotistic hires"

@InternetEh did you see this lady lives in Hawaii lol

re: This one might actually make you too mad. 

@pyxis I can just imagining her making her EA write a press release that has something about honoring the Aloha spirit

re: This one might actually make you too mad. 

@InternetEh Oregon has ruined me because now whenever I see Aloha capitalized, I think of that run down, high crime, half-abadoned looking bonch between Beaverton and Hillsboro that thinks it's gonna be the next Lake Oswego, when the schools, crime, and job situation suggests it's gonna be the next Juarez.

@BalooUriza @pyxis is that where that weird giant bunny is

@InternetEh Harvey Marine Supply. The boat dealership that's a good hour from water in the closest direction when pulling a boat trailer.

@InternetEh wait but she's a CEO... literally everything she does is inherently bougie?

This one might actually make you too mad. 

@InternetEh ah yes, she rides for $10 an hour, because otherwise, she may die

This one might actually make you too mad. 

@alex had the same thought. It's literally ride or die for one of you I bet

re: Looking at what her company actually does 

@InternetEh i literally could not tell what this meant so i looked at the website. it's actually very literal. this is some yet-to-be-released hardware that detects people's locations and other spatial data in a room. but, being yet-to-be-released, it could be (read: probably is) a complete fabrication.

re: Looking at what her company actually does 

@zorotl @InternetEh no her company is a therapy/therapist match website

re: Looking at what her company actually does 

@pyxis @zorotl profiting off the mental health crisis so few have the resources to fight while driving her assistant into an early grave

re: Looking at what her company actually does 

re: Looking at what her company actually does 

@zorotl @pyxis two companies, same name. Capitalism breeds innovation

@InternetEh @pyxis also it's kind of funny, given her original rant, that she named her company after (and all but certainly romanticizes) the idea of a literal "butler"

@InternetEh @pyxis that word doesn't have anything to do with therapy! she just really, really likes butlers!

@zorotl @InternetEh @pyxis it's not bougie (hiring an underpaid offshore worker to run a company, which is named Butlr)

re: Looking at what her company actually does 

@InternetEh @zorotl @pyxis innovation means removing vowels from common words. The less vowels, the more innovative it is

re: Looking at what her company actually does 

@zorotl oh, so good ol elizabeth holmes vaporware. Nice.

Looking at what her company actually does 

@InternetEh what an absolute pile of shit

re: She had a previous company 

@InternetEh what did they do

re: She had a previous company 

@pyxis it was a "healthcare concierge company." Helps people buy health insurance apparently

re: She had a previous company 

@InternetEh trendy healthcare is like, THE thing to do now. online prescription skin care, etc

re: She had a previous company 

@pyxis yeah I love to pay a middleman to negotiate with the thieves who stand between me and care

re: She had a previous company 

@InternetEh oh shit can you drop a link abt that if you have one?

re: She had a previous company 

@queerfrog looks like they're hiring again
builtinla.com/company/joany

re: She had a previous company 

@InternetEh thank fucking goddd I needed a job that takes too much time, underpays, and just wastes peoples time and money

re: She had a previous company 

@queerfrog I mean I was desperate enough last year to put in for that comms director position

re: She had a previous company 

@InternetEh yeah shit sucks rn. cant wait to see the job market available for me when I get out of college in a few years :bup:

This one might actually make you too mad. 

@InternetEh

Let's focus on automating those 10k/hr tasks, as that's really where the money is.

This one might actually make you too mad. 

@InternetEh median wage in philippines is like equivalent to $13K USD this is neoliberal slavery

This one might actually make you too mad. 

@Scout we can do feudalism across the globe!

Also aren't you profiting from a dictatorship too? I imagine Duterte is doing all the usual fascist stuff to keep wages low

This one might actually make you too mad. 

@InternetEh how the hell is she so proud of herself

This one might actually make you too mad. 

@Scout because being a tech CEO is a self reinforcing bubble. These people have class solidarity. Someone taught her the trick of offloading all her work on someone from a colonized country

re: This one might actually make you too mad. 

@InternetEh @Scout I think this exact idea was populised by known cunt Tim Ferriss in his book The 4 Hour Workweek.

This one might actually make you too mad. 

@InternetEh Enraged whenever someone acts like they're too self important to do tasks that are somehow both essential to get done and supposedly not worth their time

This one might actually make you too mad. 

@masklayer she literally says theres 10 dollar tasks and 10,000 dollar tasks. I guess that all depends on whether the tasks are done by a white american or someone from a colonized country

This one might actually make you too mad. 

@InternetEh love to do an alipin but with zoom and neoliberalism

This one might actually make you too mad. 

@InternetEh shed taste great with barbecue I think

This one might actually make you too mad. 

@InternetEh :hatefave:

This one might actually make you too mad. 

@InternetEh ACAB, all CEOs are bastards.

@InternetEh that's pretty hilarious.
That they can say all this stuff, and not realise she's explaining why she shouldn't exist.
I also imagine 60% is conservative.

"Ha, ha, ha; my EA has no life so I can, and then also go around telling others how they can exploit people too!"

@dankwraith see dank she's smart because she thought to find someone to offload this work on. It's leadership

@InternetEh @dankwraith she forgot to include the "e" in her company's name (Butlr). oh wait thats supposed to be quirky

@InternetEh @dankwraith found another CEO baby crawling around on her feed. her company's name? Famli

@InternetEh @dankwraith how the fuck does someone whos supposed to assist you as the name suggest do 60% of your job?

@InternetEh 1. Love to call humans assets

2. Damn, a WAP class does sound pretty intense
