I've never had an employer offer me free haircuts, or free meals at the cafeteria, or free shuttle service to/from work, but those are all examples of other perks that are common in the Bay Area where talent is in high demand.And what I'm saying is simply that employers have never paid to fill up your tank with gas
Surely by this logic you refuse other employer-provided benefits that are part of your overall compensation, yes? I mean, you can provide health insurance for yourself, or contribute to your own 401(k), ya?I think it borders on dishonest to expect something for nothing or to expect others to do for you what you can (and should) do for yourself.
Where did the "expectation" come from? You've fabricated that part of your argument.I'm sorry if you live where electricity is expensive but that is no reason to expect your employer to give you free electricity.
