A different point of view might be, of course, that it’s not really a ‘job’ to simply speak your language. I know you’ll tell me that you have qualifications, certifications, experience and a real commitment to teaching English, but that’s not really the point, is it?
The point is that most people struggle to acquire some kind of marketable skill some employer will be willing to pay a decent wage for. The key word is ‘struggle’ here.
Basically, people on this thread are complaining that a ‘skill’ acquired because they’ve been born in the USA as opposed to, for instance, Brazil is not enough to make a living.
Well, yes. It’s not enough to make a living.
I find there's some sort of morality here, and I'm sure that if you weren't personally involved in this you'd find some sort of morality too.
I thought you might want to adopt this point of view to set things in their right perspective.
Ok, I’ll take my coat.
