I work at a credit union and inherited a small book. Came across people w their money being in their 80s/90s. I'm new, but also dont want to waste time on appts that don't go anywhere.
FYI, I suck with money. Fortunately I've been able to save a bit recently. Where to put my money to work? I suck at investing but heard about some high interest credit unions? Any specific advice?
Is there an argument that unions make better creative? I think creatives are afraid that unionized agencies would be one more reason to take creative in-house. Or, can in-house creatives unionize too?
Currently in audit, looking to do tax returns for friends and family on the side to make a little extra money. Two questions: 1) would the firm have a problem with this if it doesn’t interfere with my work? I assume no since the firm probably isn’t interested in filing my brother’s return (he is a union electrician). 2) I have no experience in tax (I don’t even do my own return), so is there a good software to use for this or what is the best way to learn how to do tax returns?
Okay. A guy at work and I were talking about Gabrielle Union, and he didn’t know who she was. We were on Wiki & I scrolled to her film list and said: she was in a lot of black movies, so you might not

I hope everyone is taking the opportunity to get out and vote for candidates that are PRO EDUCATION! Our votes can impact us, our students, our colleagues, etc. (By the way, our Union shared how many educators are not taking advantage of voting and those votes would have flipped some races to PRO EDUCATION CANDIDATES!).
I am newly in a wheelchair and am unable to find clear information on the ADA website about what my job is required to do. I’ve talked with my Union Rep and they are checking. I’m requesting to be on a 504 plan, but I have no idea if they are required to add handicapped entrances or not. I know I have to scan my badge to use the button, but trying to scan my badge, open the door, and not drop anything seems a bit unattainable to me at the moment. Anyone have some insight or dealt with this?

Serious question though: what would it take to make a secession happen? Can there be a referendum or something? It’s clear that the country is so divided that I don’t know if it makes any sense to keep the union.

The only thing that would convince me to join a union was if I was deeply and strongly attacked in any way at work, and needed legal help bad. What about you?

One of my Kinders refuses to go to the bathroom at school. I have a bathroom in my classroom and there is a bathroom at the playground. He will hold it until he wets his pants. I have tried everything that I know of to get him to use the bathroom. I’ve talked with my principal and the school counselors and have tried everything that they have come up with. Nothing is working. Mom and dad both say that this is the only place he does this at. He will go just fine outside of school. Suggestions?
4th year going into my 5th year and am leading discovery and case management on a case with a $5 million budget (yeah!) with a rocket docket. Starting to understand why partners have no time to do substantive work: it’s all answering client questions and managing staff, associates, and reviewing partners. Any tips for the transition? I’ve never been too demanding from my colleagues and usually just pick up any slack myself. Now I need to motivate others and give direction.

Meanwhile got approached by a number of recruiters for a) smaller emerging startup <but need to shift geo>, and b) major banks for in-house strategy.
