I feel like we talk a lot about ethics in business from a liberal standpoint - but what if that Colorado baker just really didn't want to make a cake for a gay wedding because they don't believe in equal marriage?
Like who gets to decide what’s moral and what’s ethical?
Deloitte reservist: If I am reading the policy correctly, you do not need to apply for differential pay if you are performing IDT and AT during the work week. Is that correct?

Anyone have recommendations on being less shy at work? I feel like I haven’t developed a good internal network yet at my firm (1.5 years working). I always feel awkward cuz people are chattier than me.
Met with an industry partner last night, he’s Chinese and employs a bunch of Chinese folks also...he was one of the most intelligent yet down to earth and kind folks I’ve met and I told him (cont)
Has anyone here franchised boba shops or is familiar with the process? Saw a post on a local Facebook group from a guy who owns multiple ShareTeas in my city (top 5 in US by population). Dude must be printing money.
I checked ShareTea and iirc that want/require $300k in startup costs + $100k in liquid capital. I'm guessing that means at least $100k cash and up to $300k in business loans if you don't have more cash. Sounds super expensive but every ShareTea I've been to in my city does well
Do you guys find it hard to date? I found it hard to find the people who understand you and then add on the crazy hour that we dealing with in consulting industry.
Asian guys, what's your style like? Where do you shop? Any recs for what looks good on us?
The management style between Asian and Americans are different and I struggle with American way. Asian leaders and managers seem to know how to execute most if not all of the things their workers do and very willing to get their hands dirty. Americans don’t know nor there is willingness to learn, all they now mostly care is networking, drinking beer and wine and politicking

This piece of trash better not see the light of day even after 25 years. He will be 50 years old. Nah thats not good enough. To all those people who think this murderer is a victim of his environment, you wouldn’t be saying that if it happened to you or a loved one. So get off your moral high ground. https://nypost.com/2022/03/16/accused-chinatown-killer-assamad-nash-a-no-show-at-court-judge/amp/

I need some advice, but more than that I want to see if it’s normal. I hate my job. I’m in internal audit. My weeks feel like an endless repeating cycle of looking forward to the weekend. It’s been a while since I’ve felt joy in life. Every day I dread signing on and cant help but feel depressed. I need to support myself and my parents. I can’t afford a fancy bootcamp to redevelop my skills. Is anyone else just working for the paycheck? What can I do to break out of this cycle?
Any books to recommend regarding leadership? I really like David chang’s memoir and Can see it being applied in my own life even as a consultant.
21-year old Jose Gomez has been sentenced to 25 years for attempting to kill a 6-year old boy with a steak knife, because he assumed the boy was Chinese.
Every time I fight with my parent, they bring up the fact that they spent all their money on me and my education. I am grateful that I had parents to support me. But, to always bring it up and to try to guilt me does not sound healthy to me. I am beginning to question my parent’s behavior. Is this toxic? Do other people’s parents also always bring up how much they spent all their life earnings on their kids and how we would be nothing without out them ?

Since we’re doing unpopular opinions, wanna share one and get some other perspectives on it: never experienced a white person or other minority race being outright and purposefully racist towards me; only experiences of blatant purposeful racism has come from African African folks. As a result I find it difficult to feel solidarity in the current situation.
Any LGBTQ folks on here? Do your parents know? My mom and dad still seems to believe I’ll be marrying a good asian boy and have three children and I don’t know how I am going to get her to understand I won’t be
