Op, we don’t all have the same taste in literature just because we are partners.

Some additional info would be helpful or you maybe better off going to a local bookstore.

Something light and fun and hopefully your dad didn’t consult for the military or something, and spend the entire time complaining about inaccuracies in the story.

Hi Chicago Fish,
Any suggestions for good quality food in the city? I feel like the quality has gone downhill since covid-19 and estaurants are trying to save money and cut back.

Hello everyone!
I recently found out that I was being paid less than everyone in the team (more than 25% gap to more expe teammates, around 15% less than new hires)
We all had the same responsibilities, I consider I even had a heavier workload (talking in past tense since I very recently made an internal move).
Things to consider:
On a work visa
Non-white
Non-male
What would you recommend doing?
Keeping it to myself?
Speaking up? How? With who?

-TIA
