New Skype employees
Original post made by Too Much Traffic on Dec 27, 2010
my question is will the city be making the same demands from Skype (housing for employees, a guarantee no new net car trips into the city, big bucks to mitigate traffic etc and whatever else was on the wish list of kishimoto/drekmeier/morton) that were made of Stanford. Skype will be bringing in these new employees very quickly--the Stanford project will bring in 2200 new employees by 2025.
I think Skype should not be exempt from these demands otherwise people will have the impression that there is a double standard when it comes to dealing with Stanford vs any other employer in the city. In fact, as I have stated many times before, I think that these demands should be made of EVERY and ANY employer in the city.
