I get this feeling that you are consciously avoiding the inevitable, but admit it is happening unconsciously. Perhaps you just naturally disagree with anything stated on this site!!
beginning? or perhaps the end. Your comment I believe!!
You agreed a few weeks back that it was the worst you had seen. The rates paid without argument have halved in the past few years. So how long are they to go down before there are no foreign takers??
Hourly rates now down to half of what they were, and still going down. Soon they will level out at the rate that the long term resident "whitey" will not work for.
Then in step the individuals that WILL work for these rates. Against local hourly rates, what is on offer is good even against shipyard rates for Koreans.
Sorry my friend, the good days are gone for routine teaching jobs.
The same situation applies to me. You want to stay in a good paying teaching job, specialize, find your niche market. They are there, you just need to identify them.
