Robert "One-Fifth" The Pay

"Dear XXXXX,

We know you are diligently looking for your next job opportunity and we want to be the best resource for you. However, we are all experiencing the effects of the economy. Many clients are unable to afford the rates they’ve paid in the past. In order to meet their new budget restrictions, I am trying to gauge if you would be willing to work at a rate between $10 and $17 an hour.

Our goal is to keep people working and this is one way to do so. These pay rates are a temporary response to the current economic market. As the market improves, we will look to increase our pay rates accordingly.

If you are open to working for this rate on a short or long term basis, please email me and let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,


~Kelli"

Does anyone have details on the shitbox project Ajilon has in DC? They did not return my calls to get staffed on it but now I hear people are jumping off it fast and I want some satisfaction that it is in fact a shitbox and I did not miss out on any $.

$10 an hour pays the bills?

Maybe if you are an illegal alien collecting food stamps, have subsidized housing, and aren't burdened by student loans.

Kelli,

I understand that times are difficult for corporations in the current economic environment. Consequently, I am more than willing to work for $10.00 an hour in order to help out our economy. By doing so, I'll be helping an elite legal company and an elite legal recruiting agency.

However, since I have to pay rent and enjoy spending money, I’ll be quitting the current project as soon as something better comes along. Thank you for your understanding during these difficult times.

Sincerely,

XXXX, Esq.

P.S. Fuck you and your lousy rate. I'll never work with your firm again no matter what you're paying.

What a creative way to serve an elite law firm client.

I always say some work is better than no work.

I'm sure that the sleazy lpo types are hounding law firms and corporations with their hucketer sales pitches daily.

Robert Half: The agency that brought you the Bloomberg $20 rate (half from previous $20). But the asshole temps still went to work there. In economics, it's called the "Tragedy of the Commons."

I once went to the Robert Half office in midtown. What a slave operation. I vote them sweatshop of the century. They mostly place paralegals and put the squeeze on rates.

The Nigerians will take $1 an hour. Why offer $10-$17. Robert Half you fucking scumbag thieves don't be so generous.

Robert Half is publicly traded and HAS A MARKET CAP OF $4 BILLION. That's the salary their sucking out of your dumb ass.

The white J.D.'s, image obsessed, will do anything and work for free. Even volunteer. To have a suit and look important.

The Nigerian LLMsm(Thanks New York Bar) and Indians put the extra squeeze on the whites.

Hey kids, lets play count the grammatical errors, from the Pangea3 website"

"E-Discovery and Litigation Services

With the number of litigations expected to increase due to the economy, corporations and law firms are increasingly concerned with cost effective high-quality electronic discovery (“e-discovery”) and litigation services. With 70% of the total cost of a litigation attributed to the document review fees, corporations and law firms must select innovative litigation solutions to stay in budget. Pangea3’s e-Discovery and Litigation Services provides corporations and law firms with high quality, cost-effective document review and litigation support services that gives them the cost certainty needed to stay in budget.

As one of the first legal outsourcing companies in India to successfully complete a document review off-shore, we leverage our attorneys experience with substantive legal training and our Six Sigma processes to provide corporations and law firms with superior quality document review and litigation support services. We have expertise providing substantive document review and litigation support services for corporate counsel in class actions, government investigations, patent litigation and complex business disputes."

Law in those other nations is mainly an undergrad thing and the schools cost about ten dollars a year to attend. Classes are usually held in a sheep meadow, unless Oprah is working out of Nigeria now.

The NY bar allows people like this to attend a one year LLM toilet degree program and sit for the bar. The firms love it because they have so called "licensed" people (who can't even speak English in many cases mind you), but are able to be billed out at outrageous rates and in turn be paid illegal alien wages. The illegal aliens and foreign nationals like it because they don't have American law loans, and make far more than they would be making in their Nigerian cesspool. They can use the extra money that their American colleagues are paying towards law loans to set up extra side scams. Many of them were into flipping real estate, I don't know what their big thing is now.

The firms also have the added bonus of putting up the false facade that they are "committed to diversity" and not have to deal with the angry native African Americans like Yolanda Young.

That is all.

http://www.abajournal.com/news/8th_circuit_says_lawyer_cant_discharge_360k_in_student_debt/

A federal appeals court has ruled that a Minnesota lawyer can’t discharge more than $360,000 in student debt in his Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Mark Allen Jesperson had claimed he shouldn’t be responsible for paying the loans under an “undue hardship” exception to the general rule that student loans can’t be discharged, the National Law Journal reports. But the St. Louis-based 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Jesperson’s $48,000 annual income was due to “self-imposed limitations” and he should not be exempted from payment.

Jesperson graduated from Lewis & Clark Law School in 2000, and then held three jobs, all of which he quit for a variety of personal reasons, the opinion said. His first job was as a judicial clerk in Saipan, his second was with Alaska Legal Services and his third was with Kelly Services as a temporary worker. Next he landed a job at another placement agency, Spherion Professional Services.

The July 8 appeals court opinion noted a bankruptcy court’s finding that Jesperson’s “record of work experience is besmirched by a patent lack of ambition, cooperation and commitment.”

Jesperson is young, in good health, with marketable skills and no physical or mental impairments, the court said. He also has access to generous repayment plans, the court added. “A debtor is not entitled to an undue hardship discharge of student loan debts when his current income is the result of self-imposed limitations, rather than lack of job skills, and he has not made payments on his student loan debt despite the ability to do so.”

Anonymous said...

I quit Kelly because the on site supervisor was a cracked out whack job, and everyday after I left work I wanted to slit my writs. Does this count as a personal reason?

At least this guy still has his license, unless Sallie Mae is going to put pressure on the bar authorities to start revoking licenses.

God forbid however, if you are working for Robert Half at $10 an hour and can't pay your loans.

I am tired of being an American and paying all of the costs and not receiving any of the benefits. How come the Nigerians and Indians aren't required to attend three years of ABA law school? Why are we and the American taxpayers on the hook for funding these overpriced diploma mills, when cheap foreigners are allowed to come in after the fact and flood the job market?

Thank the New York Bar for this flood of trash Nigerian LLM.'s.

If it makes you feel any better, the super-P.C. U.K. has the same problem. They take the Bar there, but unlike the U.S. it is very hard to get work sponsorship. But they are the same retarded white-hating criminal spoilers who will work for $1.

Who's fault is this?
The fucking SHIT NEW YORK BAR and the Gloria Allreds who run it.

But but just because they make stupid rules doesn't mean there have to be problems. The UK and Japanese LLM's who take the New York Bar to have it on their resume never work here, because they are civilized people and have real economies. The Indians also are pretty smart and have a real economy. The Nigerians are the stupidest, most ridiculous, crooked, ignorant people on the face of the earth. If their country is the shit of the world, even with tons of oil, think about what troglodytes the Nigerian LLM's must be.

So, the answer is the New York Bar approach means the U.S. gets the trash people, and loses the quality Brits, French, Ozzies, Japanese, Koreans, and Indians.

I say, bring in more Nigerian LL.M's.

First of all, your entire post is just one big hatefest masquerading as a legitimate argument. You obviously have a roiling hatred of black people, and a resentment that ANY black people are getting ANY jobs.

You are also obviously an extreme loser whose employment status in this economy is so tenuous that you feel miserable about yourself, and are inclined to lash out against anyone who looks or speaks different, with vile, boiling-over spasms of uncontrollable hatred and emotions.

Since you obviously cannot control your own rage, you undoubtedly are not really qualified to practice law, or to do anything in a civilized society, for that matter -- get married, raise a family, take out student loans, study, or successfully apply for and work at normal jobs, much less pursue a career in law.

You are a racist, xenophobic, vulgar, rage-filled person who is so weak, he must lash out at others, victimize them, and spew foul names at them.

I'm sure your response to me will be more of the same uncontrollable emotionalism, thrashing about, calling people names, e.g., the N word, white trash, bleeding heart liberals, etc....

All just ways of desperately trying to divert people's attention away from your own weakness, inadequacy, and inability to make a living for yourself in this economy.

Pathetic.

I was on a project with this Nigerian guy who did absolutely NOTHING all day. His numbers were absolutely atrocious and we all couldn't believe how they allowed him to last on the project for so long. We found out that he spent most of his time on his cell phone flipping real estate. He was playing slum lord to over a dozen subprime mortgages! How an American bank provided this foreign national scum sucker with the access to the funding for over a dozen subprime mortgages baffles the mind! Imagine the fraud trail that must exist in that paperwork. This guy no doubt was in "good standing" with the NY bar. What a complete and utter joke.

So, I have known white guys who have sat on projects and did nothing all day.

I've known white, upper-middle class suburban guys who lie, beat and bludgeon their wives and girlfriends, cheat on their wives and cheat other people out of money in scams, and generally act like assholes. And you know what? They are still offered jobs, and still working, at law firms, on projects, etc.

Race has nothing to do with being an asshole.

I knew a spoiled white rich kid who offered to pay a friend $10,000 cash to take the MCAT for him -- that's right, to go in and pretend to be him, learn to sign his name, comb his hair and fix himself up to look like him, and take the MCAT. And this rich white kid was dead serious when he made the offer, and pestered his friend for months about it.

I knew one Nigerian who was starting up an LPO and running it from his cell phone while coding on a project.

Three weeks later, all the jobs on that project were shipped to India. The Nigerian allowed the banks to foreclose on the 6 apartments he was renting out to poor Brooklyn Law grads in Brooklyn Heights, the tenants were all kicked out and lost their coding jobs, and the Nigerian disappeared on a redeye flight to Mumbai where he's now making millions managing the LPO that he holds through an interlocking series of holding companies in the Caribbean and the Seychelles.

You raise some legitimate points, but consider:

1) The first and foremost problem of Nigeria, like many Third World countries, is TOO MANY PEOPLE. It's overpopulation, pure and simple. Think of Pakistan, India, and other countries in similar situations.

2) Point (1) above does NOT mean the people in those countries are any more evil, lazy, corrupt, lying, thieving, or immoral than people anywhere else, including the USA. We have our own despicable scammers and con artists here in the USA, too. Think of Countrywide and the subprime mortgage scams and crisis -- where did that originate? NOT in Nigeria, or India, but right here in the Good Ol' USA among the white people a lot of folks on this blog like to tout as "hard workers" who "contribute to society". Who were the despicable, evil, lying con artists who perpetrated these scams and this financial crisis that it precipitated? Why, nothing but a bunch of white Americans... a bunch of despicable, lying, greedy cretins among the WASP community which controls our banking system... Italian scum like Angelo Mozilo who ran Countrywide (I'm Italian-American so I can criticize my own kind)... Jewish slimeballs like Bernie Madoff who scammed his own people blind for years....

So, it's easy and convenient to criticize people in the Third World who come to this country to "take advantage"... but remember, a lot of the slime who were raised in whitebread neighborhoods right here, and who have knee-jerk racist attitudes towards anyone black, are among the biggest corrupt scammers in the world.

Think of the Scam of the Century which was perpetrated by a WASP... George W. Bush and the Iraq War.

3) And before you go blaming the people in the Third World for "having too many babies", it is much, much more complicated than that. Chinese people, who many anti-black white racists praise as a "model minority", because they are so hard-working -- how did they end up having 3.5 times the population of the US in China -- even after implementing a "one child" policy for a generation? And the Chinese are not thought of as particularly horny, as is the stereotype of Africans. Neither are Indians thought of as prolific sex fiends, but India is fast gaining on China and in a few years will have more people than China.

Population demographics is MUCH more complicated than reducing it to stereotypes of people having babies like rabbits. It has to do with centuries-old history and culture, crowding of peoples to take advantage of scarce and unevenly-distributed resources (water, arable land, etc.) and other factors.

If we are to survive as a global community we all (privileged whites included -- ESPECIALLY privileged whites) have to give up our outdated, offensive stereotypes and realize that all people are pretty much the same, just born into different circumstances.

No one gets a free pass. White Anglo-Saxon Protestants robbed this entire continent, through brute force, guns and cruelty, from the Native Americans.

Nobody is perfect. All you haters get off your high horses of racism and bigotry, drop your phony superior attitudes (which are just a crutch for your own personal weaknesses) and help the human race survive. Because I guarantee you, we are all either sinking or swimming together.

Your situation won't last forever. I know it sucks, but if it's any consulation a lot of people are also in the same situation.

You might want to try temping in a non-legal role or relly any job until you land a legal job. It feels a lot better if you're working and making a little money instead of sitting at home making nothing.

Anyway, this situation won't last for ever, so keep looking for a job. Eventually, you'll find something.

Good luck.

You can make good use of this time - even without a lot of money. Cut down your expenses, [you'll be surprised at how well you can live even with less], clean your home and mind, block out toxic people, including any unsympathetic family member, focus on your health, enjoy long walks. Keep looking for jobs and 9:29 is right do anything, even something small to get you out.

"does NOT mean the people in those countries are any more evil, lazy, corrupt, lying, thieving, or immoral than people anywhere else, including the USA."

More mouthing breathing Nigerian gibberish. Do you really think anyone believes your obvious lies? Nigeria is far more corrupt and backward than the USA and other first world countries. The rule of law is weak there, as in many third world countries. That's why they lag behind the West and why their citizens flock to the West to London and NYC and any other country generous enough to admit them.

So you may believe this simmering tripe that you've served up and perhaps you can convince a few idiot Westerners of this, but a quick Internet search will reveal what a true gutter Nigeria is.

Not to mention the avalanche of phishing schemes and relentless scamming come out of Nigeria.

Nigeria is an oil rich land and exports its lawyers and remains a vastly troubled country.

A lot of the posts here mix fact with fiction to paint a very depressing and pessimistic picture. Thing's are actually better than this site will lead you to believe.

It makes me wonder about some of the posters on this site. They seem to enjoy writing posts to make other people feel worse than they do already. Whatever. They can't escape their karma.

9:05: Have you ever thought of being a volunteer lawyer in the borough (or city) that you're in? It's a great way to pick up experience and network. Also, keep sending out resumes to any type of job you qualify or overyqualify for, and use the ABA/state/city bar committees to network.

Keep trying, apply to everything, network, ignore the recruiter BS, and ignore the naysayers. Above all, relize that your situation is temporary and you'll get out of it.

If you do the above, you'll find something better than temping. I did, and it's the middle of one of the worst recessions.

Good luck.

From Times of London. Noble Prize Winner James Watson says Africans have lower intellectual capacity:

One of the world’s most respected scientists is embroiled in an extraordinary row after claiming that black people are less intelligent than white people.

James Watson, a Nobel Prize winner for his part in discovering the structure of DNA, has provoked outrage with his comments, made ahead of his arrival in Britain today.

More fierce criticism of the eminent scientist is expected as he embarks on a number of engagements to promote a new book ‘Avoid Boring People: Lessons from a Life in Science’. Among his first commitments is a speech to a London audience at the Science Museum on Friday. The event is sold out.

Dr Watson, who runs one of America’s leading scientific research institutions, made the controversial remarks in an interview in The Sunday Times.

The 79-year-old geneticist said he was “inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa” because “all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours - whereas all the testing says not really.". He said he hoped that everyone was equal, but countered that “people who have to deal with black employees find this not true”.

He says that you should not discriminate on the basis of colour, because “there are many people of colour who are very talented, but don’t promote them when they haven’t succeeded at the lower level”. He writes that “there is no firm reason to anticipate that the intellectual capacities of peoples geographically separated in their evolution should prove to have evolved identically. Our wanting to reserve equal powers of reason as some universal heritage of humanity will not be enough to make it so”.

He claimed genes responsible for creating differences in human intelligence could be found within a decade.

To the person who posted that article about James Watson, maybe it applies to you, too.

Maybe you are still temping and not working at a biglaw firm, as an associate, because you went to an inferior law school full of inferior students with inferior brains.

That would include you, wouldn't it?

Maybe you are genetically inferior compared to most of your fellow white American attorneys. Maybe you rank at or near the bottom of the barrel, genetically, because you went to a crummy TTT law school, or got bad grades, or both, and cannot compete with your peers.

If so, it's not your fault. You are just genetically inferior. You cannot help that you are an inferior moron.

I heard the daddy was deported back to Nigeria for falsifying his immigration records.

We were all ROFL when heard you were having that loser's baby. I guess it gives you something to pass the time while you twiddle your thumbs at work.

Very tough time to be a temp recruiter, especially as a single mom.

Father Eamon needs to take Recruiter's confession and bless the new baby.

By the way, the new baby's name is Wesley Odigbuni Alvarez. Recruiter gave him her own last name, because she didn't know the father's.

Hi Ngozi!
You definitely look like an affirmative action beneficiary. Thanks for explaining how bad our southern states CITIZENS are and how intellectually superior you Nigerians are. So nice to know USA lets people like you into the country, instead of being deported back to your bug eating shithole.
