Should Your Job Cover Babysitting If You Have To Work Late?
Ester Bloom

I always resented, and still do at my contract jobs, the requests for “fun” after hours. That isn’t how I choose my fun. How about you pay my invoice within 30 days instead of 45? That would show you appreciate me.

I do enjoy those I work with and will occasionally attend one of these events, because, well, they can be unavoidable. Even without the cost of child/elder care now, I resent it.
