Re: 150/night?

@FuzzyWuzzys Sounds about right. Depressing, but right. I was suckered in to my first serious job with promises of glory and riches beyond dreams (but only after two years - right now you're on an intern salary) - I never thought to get it in writing, and was all wide eyed and surprised when at the end of my internship they said congrats, you're now a fulltime employee - but there's no more money in the pot so you'll have to stay at your current salary.

Despicable practices - but as you say, life's more reliable if you assume everybody except you is a tool, things are only likely to happen if they're in writing and utterly unambiguous, and even then... ...people are tools so they might shaft you anyway.
