Seriously though, there's been problems with Canadian timber for years and they won't do anything about it. If this is a trade war, they already fired the first shot long ago. And this isn't a broad tax across the entire industry, it only affects specific Canadian timber companies that haven't been playing fair.

It's not a bad thing without the precedent set before it. If you were getting paid 40k and all the sudden wanted 90k they'd call you crazy. That's why you ask for 90k day one. We've been getting screwed for years across the board

Hello Fishes,

I have a joining in PwC India on sept30.
They offered very less - X lpa, which is just 12% more than my CCTC.

Switching tech so thinking I might get caught for fake tech exp. in the small company.
So want to re negotiate with PwC. Everybody saying PwC takes a lot of time for approval.
So give it now only! But still 40days left what if they start looking for my replacement?
Pls help 🙏
