What better way to celebrate America's independence from the British than by spending it in a windowless cubicle:
"Kasowitz is great! If you enjoy working thru the 4th of July weekend. Woo-hoo!"
Speaking of the British,
"I hope this is a fucking joke. Craigslist NYC post below - It's an opportunity to work in one of the most expensive cities in the world earning less than 12 British pounds per hour.
First of all, I'm not sure why you'd get paid in Euros while working in the UK, which still uses the British Pound Sterling. Assuming that this is accurate, when the higher standard of living is factored in, your pay rate is ridiculously low. A Big Mac in the UK is roughly 2 British pounds, while in US dollars, it's roughly 3 bucks. Figure that your pay rate, based on your purchasing power, is no more than $18/hour.
Boo this man!
