Some more equal than others?

There has been buzz recently about women in Silicon Valley getting crude treatment from the little boy geniuses.

This is about perks, though. Rachel Feintzeig (WSJ, July 16, 2014), says the tech industry is famous for snacks, booze and free dry cleaning--but these perks are now being scaled back and not offered as often to sales people and non-developers.

Redfin, for instance, has both developers and real estate agents. The agents, used to commissions, love the perks such as big monitors and sushi lunches.

But now they are getting entitled--asking for gym memberships and the like.

If it were me, I would not expect the grape-peeling to last forever or to be for everyone.

In other words, code writers will be sushi biters and the rest will bring tuna from home.
