Q: It's a small world after all?

Does anybody know why the street sweepers have the tune for "It's a small world after all" blaring out of their speakers while they are washing the streets?

It's different from city to city. E.g. Changsha street washing trucks are blaring some xmas tune.... only 279 days until xmas, where are you saxy santa.

I thought that it had something to do with Nixon's visit - all those years ago. You know "We bring you gout and Disneyland"

Yesterday I was at McDonald's in Daqing and the Christmas tunes were still in full force.

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
