I just was job hunting on tesol.org and saw that my former employer is hiring English teachers. Mind you, they’re supposed to start teaching next week. This ad went up yesterday!
I’ve learned that now teachers will pay about 47% in Chinese income tax and currency exchange fees. So English teachers, who usually put in 50-60 hours of work a week, will earn about $9.60 per hour for all their hard work. Baby sitters make more – some nanny jobs come with housing.
Clark is the ONLY foreign university in China doing this. Rochester Institute of Technology, NYU, University of Toledo and ALL the American and Australian universities I know of don’t have these high taxes.
I pity anyone who takes these jobs. I loved my students and even little Jinan (the other city Hefei is the pits), but the pollution, mold in the apartments and the utter lack of resources makes this job highly undesirable. What a pity.
Part of the reason for this, I suspect, is that I prevailed in my claim for unemployment. Clark lied when they told the Unemployment office that I quit and in the hearing last month, that was confirmed. What their aim is to prevent their employees from getting the protections US labor law affords. Talk about disrespect and hypocrisy since the school purports to be “progressive.”

For the letter H, this week Cee challenges photographers to post photos on their blogs that depict that which is happy. Here’s my interpretation.
