Q: Anyone else taking part in the huge retail sale going on now?

Single's Day is coming up (November 11), and it's now become a tradition to hold what is basically the equivalent to "Black Friday" sales in the USA for Thanksgiving. Speaking seasonally, this is the Q4 business event that will balance out Spring Festival sales in Q1.

 

It's likely a thing in the retail stores, but this is huge for online sales. What are you buying? Or will you be spending Single's Day alone and lacking of material possessions?

There can be some good deals to be found, but often it is a way for companies to get rid of old models, still not a bad thing depending on product type. 

I think the missus is building up a shopping list of stuff she wants to see if she can find at a good cost.

November the 11th is armistice day for me.

 

I will be observing the two minute silence at 11am, not feeding the pockets of the rich few.

I think I've put quite a few things in my taobao shopping cart... In the end I'll see what the actual discount on some of the stuff will be since not all of them are showing their discounted prices until the actual day.

 

I didn't know that the retail stores were having a sale as well... Might go to the malls and check out what kind of bargains I can get.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
