    Default Local salaries from Multinationals?

    A young friend came over to tell me he had quit his job at an international shipping company

    which had employed him for a year in a management position.. entry level

    He is completely fluent in English.. having studied in England for a year.. FULL bilingual education at one of the top schools in SD... AND

    they were paying him $15000 pesos a month for a five day 9 hour a day work week with one Saturday AM on top

    lousy medical coverage with no dentistry coverage...

    that is about US $13 a DAY

    Ok,, so most middle class Dominicans are only really aspiring to $40 to $60,000 pesos a month so guess they figure that the young guys can live on peanuts

    but since his University tuition is !0,000 pesos a month....

    Seems like they are opening themselves up for letting their staff go crooked, no?

    Stupid! The first job I had on leaving school at 15 paid just 3 pounds , 5 dollars a week. It was an honor to have that job since I could buy my family some food.

    Crazy posters here!

    If you study someone pays the fees for you - they did in my case. Plus as you get educated you build up a portfolio career that means that you no longer have to walk round fields looking for disgarded vegetables or run an allotment to feed yourself and the family. The air rifle that you used to shoot down pidgeons gets into disuse.

    Stupid post and poster. So it gets edited, by a university professor! Get back to the OP, not what-ever-it-is that bothers you. Stop being a jerk. What you said had nothing to do with the OP.

    I think it is the universities charging the students, not the professor.

    (We;ll do it without the quote, and I agree with you!!)

    You talking about publishing nonsense is certainly the pot calling the kettle black.
