Should I accept the offer or are they lowballing me? I just finished my offer discussion with the recruiter from PwC for a summer (May-August) internship at PwC Corporate Finance (boutique investment bank) in Montreal, Canada. They’re offering me $47k CAD (prorated), no benefits bcs internship, 10 sick days. Did my research and asked around, it seems to me that it’s very. I was expecting sth between ($60k -$80k CAD). What do you think? PwC
Would you get a COVID Vaccine? Suppose it was mandated by your school and you still had reservations about it.
Just curious...What does it look like in your building when there are no substitutes available anywhere within the district's pool? Are you combining classes or having teachers cover an hour during their plan period? Do counselors, building administrators, and other "specialized" positions rotate in to cover the classes that are without teachers? It has become a daily challenge to staff our classes this year and I feel that the burnout rate is going through the roof!
If you had to designate a sixth vital sign, what would it be? Thinking about this after watching Dope Sick.
Interesting read about folks who won’t take vaccines. Lots of different rationales, but they all boil down to people thinking they’re smarter than experts (a common problem in modern America) and a general “you can’t tell me what to do” attitude. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/05/the-people-who-wont-get-the-vaccine/618765/
Would you let go? I have struggled in the US for 10 yrs, battled through O1 and 3 layoffs, finally my current company submitted PERM last yr. Then this yr, my dad became extremely ill with stg. 4 cancer. Imagine a lighthouse in a storm. That’s my dad to me. Now I have to choose: back in the US, the lonely life but (comparatively) great income, or stay to spend the definite time with my dad, let go of the “American Dream” and re-build my life after my dad’s decease. Which would you let go?
Sick of getting ideas shot down because I'm young! I'm the goddamn market, I speak the language of social media vs the older creatives who are like, "Hey what's with this forward/rev gif thing? Its cute. Let's use that."

Our 3 year old cat got diagnosed with a heart issue. Genetically weak heart muscle or something apparently and we won’t know how long he has - could be weeks, could be 1-2 years.. 😞 just hope he doesn’t feel any pain. I love our kitties but it just is rough when they are sick and there’s nothing you can do.
I’ve been working in agencies for 5 years and I want to explore freelancing digital buying/ghost writing. Can you share the pros, cons, and how you even got started? I’m just sick of agency BS.
Contriversal topic but here it goes: I’m in-house a F100 and happen to be a white male (although I do have a fairly severe “invisible” disability). Progression to a management level attorney is quite difficult despite the relatively large. Recently the company announced DEI initiative that includes targets and goals for women and people of color (not applicable to other minorities). I absolutely want more diversity in our law department - I’ve taken steps to help ensure that there is - but…
Delta Air Lines is raising health insurance premiums for unvaccinated employees by $200 a month to cover higher Covid costs. Higher insurance costs for unvaccinated are coming.

Anyone other expecting mamas really sick of not being able to drink? Or being around people that are? I find myself dreading what should be nice dinners or parties knowing the focus will be drinking. I realize this is me having the problem and I am running low on tolerance - anyone else?
Made plans for my close non-lawyer friend to visit. Found out she is unvaccinated (hasn’t gotten around to it - she says). The handful I hangout with are vaccinated. Majority of my office is vaccinated - or required to wear mask entire day. Struggling to find the words to cancel plans until she’s vaccinated. She is sensitive. Any advice?
Anyone else think it’s weird / disheartening how many folks comment stuff that isn’t helpful? This hasn’t even happened to me, but I’m so sick of seeing the top comment on posts be “Google is your friend” or other joke replies on a lot of folks asking reasonable questions. Be helpful or keep scrolling.
Given the presidents comments in the debate and the constant violations of the Hatch act that likely increased the risk of him catching COVID (ie all those maskless people on the lawn)...why should the American tax payers foot his medical bills now. This seems like something he should be paying OOP due to his recklessness
