You mean secretary work or something like that? Doesnt all jobs in City pay better than that?

Just like over here. However, what is the point with having teaching assistants if these positions are only filled with people who are simply not qualified (nor motivated) to do the job? If we expect assistants to do vital work in the upbringing of kids, either in school or kindergarten, what's the point in recruiting people who are not up for it? Not to mention the price that this can cost in the future.

According to the rules of capitalism; increase your prizes! (It always surprises me how few people "get" capitalism)
