Come on guys, give the OP the benefit of the doubt. I'm sure there is no way in hell they are stupid enough to think that 2.4 and a split shift is fair pay...

wtf. 46? where the hell do you work?

Well...it is a "famous" franchise in Korea....or, infamous.  It is a mix of being swindled a bit, and, having the wolves at the door due to another position I had lined up ,having fallen through. 

Trust me when I say...it is a step down.  My last job was one of those you only hear about, perhaps from someone like Van Islander.  But, I had it...my own classroom (which I turned into a den of awesomeness), any recourse I needed, big screen TV for PP lessons, input on curriculum...no more than 20 classes per week.  I was happy to put in extra work...seriously.

 Unfortunately, the school's owner sold it to new managment and they turned it into some Korean academy....8 months into my contract.

Now...construction outside my door (and bed room window)...46 classes a week, no say on curriculum, a complete incestuous/clusterfuck of a schedule. It gets better....if I leave for any reason within the first six months, the contract says they will take 1/2 my salary.  I'm willing to bet I would not go gently into that good night, if they did that.   
I make less than Poly...this is how great it is.

The kids are great though.  If I had the typical hagwon gutter-rats, I would have left.  Actually, to be fair...I have been quite lucky with the kids ,during most of my teaching career.  I read horror stories regarding them, but, as I said...I've been lucky.  Then again, I may actually know what I'm doing...who knows?   

Anyway..back to the OP
