Very interesting comment from David Heinemeier Hansson, who runs the successful remote working company Basecamp, suggesting that Facebook is "barbaric" for adjusting remote work pay depending on where you live.

What do you think? Should your pay for remote work depend on where you live, or should it be the same whatever your location?

“Wait what? Facebook is seriously going to dunk someone's salary if they move? That's barbaric. https://t.co/xoV5XpstH3”
