Happy Monday.

What’s interesting today

Wage theft is a┬áserious crime. We’re finally treating it that way. New York is starting to get serious about wage theft.

The tyranny of the marginal user. It is always thus. Hacker News discussion.

Fan mail of the day

They are an employee-owned co-op, and therefore, they are completely free to write about whatever they want. Mostly sports. Occasionally, crazy houses that show up on Zillow.

They also host one of our family’s favorite podcasts: Normal Gossip.
