  1. Awesome point, Allie – a small difference but really important. They totally could have still enjoyed the publicity and still given their vendors the dignity of being called a vendor/employee. Thanks for reading and speaking your mind!!

  2. Love the KV references. I think the point that lead to all the uproar (or at least the little point that irked me) was that rather than “hiring” the homeless individuals as service reps for the company, where they’d be the ones offering the service and making the financial transaction to provide the service to concertgoers (which is exactly what they were doing anyway), they were objectified ad the wifi hotspots themselves. I think it’s a pretty small difference, but I think it was the idea that the company didn’t value homeless individuals enough to call them employees (for however temporary it was).
