Re: In 50s ready to relocate: comparing pension options

At $76k you're on more than the vast majority of teachers. My advice is stay where you are.

Re: Creating fake references

I am but a rational economic agent seeking to maximise his utility. Now, why not do this?

Re: Negotiating and Accepting an Offer with a Pregnant Wife

Don't say a word, your personal life is quite frankly none of their business.

Dismissing someone because they had a child is illegal in all civilised countries on the planet, and often even in some uncivilised ones too.

Re: Feeling very stressed in my new city - Advice?

Heliotrope: And if I was caught, I'd be fired, as that behaviour isn't up to the standard that (most) admin would believe is acceptable. Just because I might behave 'unacceptably' to some paper pusher who spends his day watching youtube, doesn't mean I'm going to accept bad behaviour that affects me...

Re: contract back out repercussions

Just cancel the contract with the first school and take the better offer. In any other industry, an employee who gets an offer for more money/a nicer location/better career prospects would drop their old employer without a care in the world, and it's no different here. You have to look after number ...

Re: Feeling very stressed in my new city - Advice?

Not helping someone find a place to live after you've employed them from overseas goes way beyond 'bad treatment', and more into the realm of a human rights violation.

Run, and don't look back. They've left you in a hostel ffs, how much worse can it get?

Re: Creating fake references

Interpol? Just LOL, let's be realistic, that's never ever going to happen. Just imagine seriously thinking anyone is going to issue a red notice because you lied about work experience on your CV. Half the world would be in prison. If you find out, sure you won't employ me. But you wouldn't employ me...

Re: Feeling very stressed in my new city - Advice?

Why would you stay at a place where you are left to sleep in a dorm room and the admin clearly don't give a damn about you? Just LOL if you would put up with such treatment because of some worthless piece of paper you signed.

Re: Creating fake references

Heliotrope: I can't change careers since this is really the only job you can get that allows you to travel overseas with ease. Plus, would take too long to retrain and I've no desire to do so anyway, since it's a pretty easy job all in all, and in most places you get to salarymog the locals and bang...
