I saw the piece as well.. pretty depressing. A start-up migth not have the money to hire an old qualified PhD... I am not if an old qualified PhD will be interested either.. Almost feels like we have 2 worlds in the valley

I don't know about that. One of the most depressing bits was an engineer who just took a job at Target for $9.50/hr.

There were also plenty of office managers and others whom I would assume could bring forth plenty of skills that a start-up (funded) could employ. Particularly in sales, one would think.
