Nah... Too many intangible and hard to measure skills involved in order to put union like structure. Unions are more successful with say factory work because it's much more clear cut type of work and output so it allows more for putting folks under common denominator... I think...

Hahaha, you'll never get that many "free thinkers" to march to your drum. Good idea in theory, but i don't see it happening

OMG, Yes! Of all the industries, ours probably needs it the most. Huge differences in pay grades for similar roles, no compensation for overtime. Huge shareholder profits are declared yearly while headcount and pay freezes continues. No one is held accountable for fair treatment of workers. Yes, yes, yes.

Starcom, how will it work? We can't even do timesheetd on a weekly basis, largely because we are by and large making them up. If I billed for the actual time I am "working" on a specific project, I "work" an hour a day, but it takes me all day to do it. It's very difficult to put more rigid controls in place.

smart

No.

Starcom,

Hi All, I have a fully furnished, sun soaked, art-filled 1 BR apartment available for month-to-month rental indefinitely. The space is located right in the heart of Union Square. With noise insulated windows and a tree-lined view, the apartment gets great privacy. I am asking for $2k/month (which is significantly lower than what I pay), but am flexible depending on interest. Building: full service, door man building with elevators and laundry. (Continued in comments)

I hope everyone is taking the opportunity to get out and vote for candidates that are PRO EDUCATION! Our votes can impact us, our students, our colleagues, etc. (By the way, our Union shared how many educators are not taking advantage of voting and those votes would have flipped some races to PRO EDUCATION CANDIDATES!).

Currently in audit, looking to do tax returns for friends and family on the side to make a little extra money. Two questions: 1) would the firm have a problem with this if it doesn’t interfere with my work? I assume no since the firm probably isn’t interested in filing my brother’s return (he is a union electrician). 2) I have no experience in tax (I don’t even do my own return), so is there a good software to use for this or what is the best way to learn how to do tax returns?

What do you think that the education system needs to do, to get young people to be better prepared with challenges in life? For example, I grew up in Malaysia, national secondary schools had home science lessons, where we learnt from ironing to cooking to carpentry to sewing to plumbing to soldering on a circuit board where we did individually or in teams. To me, these skills altogether prepped me with a lifelong ‘Swiss Army knife’! Anyone with children with ideas?
