What is going on here? 13 000 WON an hour for kindie? 20 000Won for 3 weeks at a hagwon. 18 000WON an hour for another kindie job. Why is the pay going lower? Well, people keep on taking these jobs and keeping EVERYONE'S pay down. This is crap pay people! My wife is Korean and makes 25 or more per hour for teaching English. Why are you taking less? Go back home if you think 13 an hour is good money because you can more there. Part time should be at a minimum 30 a class-not 18 an hour. Are you kidding me?
People bullshit and say the economy is bad but that is crap. The reality is people here are too ignorant (literal sense meaning not knowing) too realize they are being ripped off. If the economy was bad, apartment prices would fall and full time pay would as well. But apartment prices are on the rise on full time pay went from an average of around 2mil a month to 2.2 in the last 2 years. Unemployment has remainded steady and people's wages have also gone up. So why is part time pay going down? To many illegal teachers who do not know any better are being hired by shady schools trying to save a buck and that leaves people who actually live here hurting for reasonabe jobs.
So what is the solution? All I am willing to do is keep posting things like this and tell people to stop taking these crappy jobs. Have some pride. Think about this.
2.2 a month salary
That is over 2.8 a month. But when a school offers 1.6 for 3 weeks doesn't that make you wonder where the money is going. It is going into the schools pockets as well as the teacher who is leaving. They still get the bonus (which logically you should also-why are you working to help them get their bonus) and so on but all you get is the salary. But it is part time. You get paid more. That is how it works here. The other kinde job-9 to 5 for a mil. Come on. Ridiculus.
Smarten up people. Stop being so greedy and see the big picture here. Taking these jobs keeps wages down for everyone-you and your friends included. Stop thinking only for yourself. And if you think this is okay, how would you like it if people who only think of themselves start going to immigration and turning in others who are teaching illegally. Same thing right, self preservation? Youtake food from someone else's mouth how is different they do the same to you? I could never do that as, well, it is not my style but I can not speak for others (obviously or people would not be taking these crappy jobs...lol). And besides, I am just trying to make a point for those who think they can do whatever they want to. Yes you can, but so can others so be smart. So think of all of us who are trying to make a buck and stop taking jobs that are killing the market. If no one takes them, the pay has to go up which is good for everyone. Cheers!
PS And for those who want to argue with me, I am just trying to help everyone out here. I have never seen the market place like this before. It is troublsome especially when you actually live here. People pop in and pop out but there is a large community of regulars who actually are teachers and this is how we make a living. Do what you will but please be respectful of others, especially if you are wanting the smae back. Thanks.
