Google employees aren’t the only tech workers struggling to afford Silicon Valley rents. One (alleged) Facebook employee recently confessed to a local TV station that she cannot afford the Bay Area’s $2,000 a month rents, forcing her to live out of her car. Unique Parsha, the employee in question, opened up about her situation to local Fox affiliate KTVU, hoping to start ‘a real dialogue about the high cost of living in the Silicon Valley’ (although as readers will quickly realize, there is a very real chance that either KTVU, or everyone else has been part of an elaborate trolling scheme).
‘Parsha’s nickname is “Pinky”- she has pink hair, a pink car, and even a pink dog. But she says, things aren’t always as rosy as they appear.
Parsha says, “I tell people all the time, stop looking at what somebody got and what you see on the outside”.
On the outside, Parsha is a model Facebook worker, who runs a non-profit in her spare time. But she’s been living out of her car since April.’
