Hearing about the ridiculous demands from the LA teachers union... Is anyone else frustrated with how political teaching has become? I'm not sure that I would teach at all if it was required to join the union. So sick of the pressure to back certain candidates, walk-outs, and viewpoints.

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?

Ladies how do you manage your relationship when your spouse holds you to what you promised you would do before you got married but then you realize you can’t do it. I had promised my husband I would fast with him for an entire day on a specific religious holiday, but when I did for the first time I had stomach pains, headache, and nausea. I told him I can’t do it for that long again but he said “we’ll see, you just need to push through”.

Is it crazy to go from $330k total comp in consulting to $240k total comp in corporate strategy at a F50? Base would be about the same in both roles. Young family at home, need to exit consulting and get better work life balance. We could afford it financially, though unlikely to see meaningful increases for a few years in the new role. Anyone taken that kind of pay cut before for family and balance reasons?
