My apt building just told us only 1 of 2 elevators will be functioning for the next 46 weeks. My lease ends in April 2022. Can I use this as a leverage point to try and keep my current Covid rent price on my apt? Huge inconvenience

Your rent until April 2022 is already established, and I believe that’s the Covid discount you’re discussing, and by the time May 2022 rolls around, they would say no, that was already factored into the rent we offered you in May 2021. As far as for May 2022 - April 2023, they will probably express indifference to your inconvenience for the three months (May, June, and July 2022) remaining in the project.

Are you on park Ave? This is happening to my building too... "Elevator modernization "

Nah but lowkey I don’t need modern elevators

Lived through this at Normandie Court many moons ago. The modernization projects take much longer than quoted. All three elevators per tower were replaced over 1.5 years. Used it to get a free gym membership in our building and knock a few bucks off monthly rent (lived on the 34th floor). Allow 15 extra minutes during rush hours if you’re on too high of a floor to take the stairs. Plenty of times elevators will be too packed to get on.

Does that require filing of H-1B amendment - maybe it is considered employer address changes? Does it require another LCA? Stick both LCA on wall?

I left my consulting role of my own accord earlier this year (pre-COVID), primarily for WLB reasons. Notably, I was always rated a “top performer” and left on very good terms. I did not have a job lined up because I wanted to get out of the rat race for a bit and enjoy life. With the job search severely tougher than expected and repeated, explicit offers from my former partners to rejoin, I start to feel tempted. => See below...

His family vacations always seemed to include a 500 mile bike race or some other extreme event. He is now doing this in Europe (according to IG). How do spouses put up with that?
