ADVICE: Is My Job Exploiting Me?
By Stacy Morrison
Does my philosophy of taking pay where I can get it undermine the higher rate that I should be asking for? Am I being exploited by a company that has no compunction to drop me to part-time after 14 years of full-time work?
TueNight 10: Michelle Arnold
TueNighter Michelle Arnold knows her way around mid-century decor and has some capital-S Stories. “I’ve taught school in France, been kissed by Rick Springfield, hugged by Simon Le Bon, had cheesecake with my absolute childhood hero, Stephanie Zimbalist (from Remington Steele), and I get to live in NYC and work with music, my life-long passion, every day.”
Have a safe and happy holiday weekend, Tuenighters!
