That is SO last week

Last week, Apple and Facebook announced a new benefit for female employees: egg freezing.  In the “perk war” to woo top talent, Silicon Valley is prepared to buy time for female employees who want to delay starting a family.  The announcement sparked an intense debate over benefits, with some suggesting that if employers pay for freezing eggs, they need to pay for daycare too.
 
Clearly, the war for talent rages on, with employers offering prospective employees everything from house cleaning to yurts to purpose.
