April of last year, Dan Price, CEO of Gravity Payments, made big waves when announced he was raising the minimum pay rate of all his employees to $70,000.  A lot of people said his company would take a hit; some CEOs expressed disappointment in him, because he was making them look bad.

A year later though, he still hasn’t closed up shop.  In fact, his company is doing so well, his super happy employees decided to pay him back for his generosity.

Since he talks about Tesla cars a lot, they got together and decided to buy him one.

On July 13th, they went to the Seattle Tesla dealer and picked up the car they ordered for their boss. They then presented Dan with his brand new car… and he LOVED IT!!

The fact that he started crying when he saw the car makes me want to cry!  Meanwhile, my boss is lucky if I offer to buy him a drink when we’re out!
