MENLO PARK, CA -- Facebook, Inc. has opened a dormitory to help its employees save on Silicon Valley housing costs, which are extremely high.
"We did this for the good of our workers," said Founder Mark Zuckerberg. "The dorms are a bit crowded, but we have headphones and WiFi so everyone can still be disconnected and private."
Zuckerberg plans to expand the dormitory concept and pay employees with "Like Money" that they can use at the company store for things like toothpaste, razors, and other essentials.
Relatives will be able to visit their loved ones who work at Facebook every third Sunday from 10 a.m. to noon when the main doors to the dormitory compound will be opened.
