Comments and QuestionsEdit

  • No one seems to be including gender in his/her entries above. I'm curious.
  • The posted salaries are awful. Not even a living wage. Why do we accept unacceptable working conditions?
  • I am not sure why but I think the market forces shape us and we now need to shape them
