It is a clear sign what we have felt for a long time.......teachers are expendable.

Truth!

My elementary school is going back August 3rd. Students and teachers to wear mask, but special education students may or may not wear mask. Teachers are mostly 10 years and above in experience so we have an older population.

I’ve decided to go back. Students with mask can stay in room with social distancing and without mask I will have them outside on the lunch tables with social distancing. Sink in room to wash hands as they come in. I’m a special education teacher.

We are doing remote and full in classroom learning. Everyone to have temperatures taken at door of school. Runny noses won’t enter my room. Notes to nurses office will be plenty.

Prayer is a must during this time of our lives!

I teach special education, also. Our district is making masks optional for all students, and expecting families to do health checks at home without taking any temperatures at school. Your district sounds like they actually care at least a little about your safety. I wonder how miserable the kids will be, though, forced to sit in one seat six feet apart from every other student, without changing rooms during the day. My ADHD kids will lose their minds.

Hi
I joined this company in November, at that I had offer from 3 companies with 22 LPA being highest ctc offer, those were service based company then I cleared a product based MNC, NCR Corporation, and they negotiated me down to join at 19 LPA. At that I joined considering job security but now seems like I am underpaid because interns in my team has been hired on 10 LPA and I have 6 YOE. Should I look for switching Organization?

Would you find it too much if a candidate asks for 10k more than what he was offered at first?

They are really interested in my profile. I was interested in the work so I asked the recruiter how much would I be paid and she said 60k. I feel like I'm stuck because it's a really good offer considering my skills and experience but I'm afraid if I start negociating and ask for more, it would be considered rude. Any opinion?

Need to settle something. I woke up on Saturday morning to four missed calls at 330AM from my older sister. No texts or other context. I was immediately concerned so called/texted her back and no response. I was seeing my parents that morning so asked them if they had heard from her and they said no why, so I told them the situation. My sister finally gets in touch with me later in the morning and when I asked what happened she said “don’t worry about it.” I feel like I was owed a response…cont.

A couple of associates at my firm are very close. We openly discuss salaries and discovered some are significantly paid less than others even though we are the same class year and went to T20 schools. The high ups somehow found out about these discussions and are angry and want to talk to us. They're claiming we are "entitled millennials." Should I see this as a red flag and start looking for an exit?
