I'm on Work Strike...

........ from a particular school I'm working with. I told The Man about it and he went "huh"? What huh?!?!?! Tell me! Will you continue going to work if your pay has been delayed for 6 months and still counting? Sorry, but enough. Pay up and we'll return to teach, it irritates me further that from my understanding, this school charges a "high" price for their school fees. Together with my colleagues there are 4 of us teaching in this particular school which has a couple of branches around Singapore. I'm talking about not 1 to 1 classes but classes with at least 10 students in it per hour each session. Multiply by the calculator or I'll lend you my toes.

Despite numerous billings invoices and reminders. I was telling V, he should add that each reminder letter is charged at $100 bucks! What's worst is, there's this one instructor that only teaches this school and has got no private lessons. Thus, V has been paying him through his own pocket. I was fuming when there was a television crew at the pool last week filming the teaching. Promoting awareness to the public that their school provide swim lessons.. ZzzZzz
Let's see, with us on strike. The school's teachers are welcome to get into water and teach themselves! Call us mean, but they've got a reputation of delaying payments in the swim industry currently.

Owner/Admin of school is a "gek-leng". This is fine example of what's called "Gek-leng-Xiao".

@ecl,
school in private sector. top notch case of "gek-leng siao" ZzZz

@tigerfish,
most SGs won't do that. for my case it's a case of my 'patience' running and registered under "private limited".

Oh that is unfortunate... Sorry to hear it! No one deserves to work without pay- no matter where they live or where they work!!
