Following up an online posting for a job. The client offered $20 (I assumed an hour) to manage his tech support team. However…
Client: Okay, so that’s $400 per month and a bonus for performance.
Me: What? I couldn’t even afford my cable and electricity bills on that.
Client: Oh, so you’re one of those foreigners that thinks we should all just pay at American pay rates. No way. If you were American, maybe, but –
Me: I live and was born and raised in Texas. You’re in Illinois, right?
Client: Oh, nevermind, I only hire Filipinos.
Me: I’m actually Filipino too.
Client: I meant poor Filipinos.
