According to the news organization Bloomberg, nakedly grinding against five dudes covered in henna while everyone high as shit in a literal desert is a work trip that you can get reimbursed for now:
When heading to Burning Man, the nine-day bacchanal-cum-art installation in the Nevada desert, people tend to bring along their friends, lovers or drinking buddies. Others go with their coworkers—and they expense it.
Shane Metcalf, co-founder and chief culture officer of 15Five, this year decided to let employees at his software company who had never been to Burning Man file the $425 tickets on their expense reports. The idea, he says, is to help foster creativity and community at work.
Oh? That's cute.
But if tech executives are still paying for their people to go pretend to be visionaries [ie rolling their faces off on Molly] in the armpit of Nevada for a few days, are interest rates really too high?
Sure, Silicon Valley dipshits are arguably dipshits indeed, but cheap money is self-evident when it's too cheap.
