NJ Unemployment

Unless they are paying you, for YOUR TIME, then screw them! We are not slaves! Here in NJ where I sub, they are just happy that we show up. Time to take a stand.

Good news

Good news is that my district decided not to outsource to Swing after all. They are very unhappy with the few subs that actually showed up from Swing and even more unhappy that 80% of their subs have...

Wow, where I sub there is such a demand for subs that there can literally be about 20-25 jobs available the night before, whenever I log in. Maybe you should consider signing up for more school...

Yeah, no matter what company you work for, taxes can be tricky. I dont bother doing them by hand anymore. Always use a reliable program like Turbo Tax or H&R Block. I noticed one of my school...

Personally I have been subbing in this district for about 9 years and everyone knows me already. Therefore, a merge with Swing would not suddenly make me a stranger. But you are right, if you join...

Oh ok. Doesn't sound too bad, however I would not look forward to getting fingerprinting and the TB all over again. I did that years ago and my districts never required us to get it done again.
