Hi, everyone, I wanted to share my recent interview experience.
Towards the end, the interviewer casually mentioned, “By the way, this position only pays $30,000, so if you’re seeking something better-paying, you might want to explore other options.” I responded, “Alright, I’ll do that.” He then seemed surprised and said, "Wait, no!
Even though some time has passed since this occurred, I still find the interaction quite amusing.
Lol. If I post a job for $30,000 and you show up on time and aren’t currently stoned; not only are you hired, but you’re underpaid.
It reminds me of one of my favorite Jack Dee jokes about interviewing for a job as a London Subway driver:
You could make a good impression by showing up late and then not moving a muscle for two hours
We were in Thailand a few months ago and calculated how much it would cost to live in a luxury apartment in the heart of Bangkok. Even on the American minimum wage, we would live like kings.
Americans are doing that in Mexico and on a small scale Portugal currently and its absolutely the economy for the local people who have lived there for generations.
New colonialism just dropped.
I mean it’s just gentrification.
Turns out gentrification was just internal colonialism
