People respect billionaires who produced or invented something, e.g. Rowling, Jobs, Dyson but not those who created a successful business model. Seems a bit unfair to me.

Depends what job they're doing I guess. if it's just picking stuff off shelves and putting it on a cart, probably not that many that could transfer to teaching.

Teaching what? You think someone stacking shelves at amazon couldn't teach ABCs and "this is an apple" to minsu and bomin at crappy mccrap hagwon?

Teaching well is a skill.

It absolutely is.

For all ages.

Not everyone can do it well.

Takes practice.

Improvement comes with time.

The last time I worked in a warehouse, two of my work mates couldn't actually read, so they'd have found it difficult.  We're talking UK education here. Still, the point is anyone can teach anything in the sense that they can stand in front of a class and tell them to do stuff.   University educated people should be able to read, understand and write lesson plans better, be fairly skilled at presenting/public speaking, know more about the learning process, know how to create stuff on Word/Powerpoint , know what is considered standard English and what isn't etc, plus a load of other basic skills I can't be bothered to come up with now.  It's all pretty obvious if you think about it.

No, it's not obvious.

Not every EFL teacher has the English nor classroom skills to teach EFL. And Korea has a strong fetish for hiring based on trivial things like appearance over any actual skill.

The fact that you can't even appreciate that things like keeping to tight deadlines, working under immense pressure to reach targets, working as part of one or even multiple teams simultaneously, learning to operate in-house systems, liaising with different departments based on different needs and situations etc...all count as valuable skills compared to "teaching" at a hagwon that thinks you're a good teacher because you have blonde hair.

It's not even like skills aren't transferable. Some skills gained in "unskilled" jobs like working at McDonald's (personal experience) and factory work absolutely come in handy when teaching EFL.

Some of you just fell hook, line sinker for the skilled vs unskilled differentiation and it's showing your class privilege.

Sure, having had a job, any job, before you start work in a hagwan, would make you more employable than someone who hadn't

you might be onto something. everyone seems to love Jobs, but weren't there many scandals showing horrendous working conditions in chinese factories where they produced apple products? nobody really seemed to care about that though

trump didn't know what he wanted or couldn't find the time to work to get it passed.

Funny thing is, one pundit said he would have been re-elected if Pelosi's original bill had been passed. 

The stimulus bill just passed is too small thanks to moscow mitch and the far right republicans.

"I am asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600 to $2,000, or $4,000 for a couple," Trump said in a video posted to Twitter.


For all his many, many, many, many faults, he is right on this one.

Broken clock syndrome maybe.

Can't you just say "Good" or "I agree?"

Agree with the stuff you like disagree with the bad.

For those who don't like Trump, broken clock syndrome is pretty apt.

Brace yourselves for a nonstop stream of letdowns. You wanted "normal"? Congrats, you got it. We're right back to where we were. These were the idiots that got us to that point.

So much of the Trump hate and fear was artificially created. You're going to realize how little of it was actual substance as things roll on.
