The Great Discount Debate: Who's Right? 🤷

So, our business owner is in quite the pickle. Valerie, a former employee, quit her job to focus on school and continued paying her discounted rent. When the owner informed her of the $120 difference, her mom sent an angry email, accusing the owner of being unfair. While the owner feels they're sticking to the contract, they also wonder if they're being too harsh. If they give Valerie the discount, they feel morally obligated to reduce all rents by 20%, which would eliminate their profit. What do you think? Let's see what the internet has to say about this situation... 🌐💬
