At the beginning of April, Dan Price, founder and CEO of Gravity Payments in Seattle, announced that he was raising the minimum salary at his 120-person payment processing company to $70,000. Most of the money for these raises will come from cutting Dan’s salary from $1 million to $70,000 per year as well. The rest will come out of the $2.2 million the company expects to earn in profit this year.

We sat down with Dan to see what has happened in the last month since his announcement.
