    I'm wondering what qualifies him to say what is and isn't "hard" work. I'm curious about how many manual labor jobs (his benchmark of difficulty) he's worked himself to give him perspective to write this.

    Most of all, though, I'd love to hear what he thinks about his own company. Since he works in tech—and not on a farm picking lettuce—starting, growing, and managing his multi-million dollar company must not have ever involved hard work... right? Hell, if we're going there, why should he even bother giving his employees all those nice benefits if their work is not hard? If their work isn't "hard", then they shouldn't need any of that stuff, right?

    I might have taken this a little far, but my point remains: This man seems wholly unqualified to define "hard work" means for everyone else.
