I’ve been working for the same company for over 7 years— I believe they have improperly categorized my coworkers and me as contractors. We are supervised, have regular hours, daily meetings, we’re expects to be working Monday through Friday, our work (editing and writing) is essential to the operation’s purpose. They don’t pay any social security or unemployment. After complaining they have said they’d agree to make us employees, but with a pay cut. What should I do?


There’s a lot to unpack here…🥴

Wwyd? One of my girl friends uses photos that are heavily edited on a dating app to where they don’t reflect what she looks like in real life. Shes a plus sized gal, & the pictures don’t reflect her plus size. She has had guys leave upon seeing her on the first date because of this. She asks me what she should do & I don’t know what to say or how to respond. I want to be honest but feel it would hurt her feelings or cause conflict

Question:please read, sorry if this too long. I’ve worked at this firm for 3 years as a Legal assistant, they hired another LA 10 months after me, she basically became the favorite. If there’s any new training to do, her direct boss (chairman) makes sure she’s the 1st to know about it, she’s the 1st being trained. I’ve talked to my boss (who is also a partner) about being trained. She said they’ll look into it, it’s been months. I’m not growing at this firm. What would you do?
