• I found out my boss has been sabotaging my job applications. What should I do?

    I am a recent college graduate, and I work for a solo attorney. It is only him, a secretary (his wife), and myself. I worked for him for two years now, and he pays me $12 an hour (30 hours per week), which is pretty good, but not enough for me to be financially independent.

    I am a recent college graduate, and I work for a solo attorney. It is only him, a secretary (his wife), and myself. I worked for him for two years now, and he pays me $12 an hour (30 hours per week), which is pretty good, but not enough for me to be financially independent. I recently interviewed for a recent alum's company, and his company had him do reference checks. The alum informed me my current boss gave a less than favorable reference. I have interviewed with other companies too, and used him as a reference, but now I suspect he gave them bad references as well. now, the work i do is valued much more than $12 an hour (filing zoning permits, variances, etc..) and I think i do a very good job. I have great working relationships with the clients, civic groups, government staff, etc... I even use one of my long term clients as a job reference. in addition, I have travel often on public transport to the client sites, and sometimes walk up to 5+ miles per day. I now believe the boss is trying to keep me around as long as possible because i am difficult to replace and he doesn't want to pay market rate for a paralegal or associate attorney. my major is mathematics with a minor in computer science with a 3.15 gpa. So i think my market value is $20+ an hour. i've also interned with a mortgage insurance company last year but i couldn't get a full time offer from them. There is an Ivy league and a large state school where I am so the job market is super competitive

  • One of the greats in F1, Niki Lauda, RIP?

    Best answer: Very sad news to wake up to this morning although clearly he wasn't well as he'd been missing from the Pits lately. He could be rather out-spoken, but most of what he had to say, was relevant and perhaps needed. And another one departs. This is very scary.

  • Will Donald Trump do prison time for all the crimes he has committed?

    Best answer: Hopefully. He can try to pardon himself but that may not work. He can resign and get Pence to pardon him if he loses the 2020 election. He can escape to another country and seek asylum before he can be arrested. He can commit suicide if he knows he is going to be arrested. Or he may die of a heart attack, or AIDS... show more
    Best answer: Hopefully. He can try to pardon himself but that may not work. He can resign and get Pence to pardon him if he loses the 2020 election. He can escape to another country and seek asylum before he can be arrested. He can commit suicide if he knows he is going to be arrested. Or he may die of a heart attack, or AIDS or other illness before he can be arrested. These are all possibilities.

    Pardons only work for federal crimes. New York State is readying charges against him, and no presidential pardon can help him avoid being convicted at the state level, although there is a slim chance that the Supreme Court can rule that it is unconstitutional to charge a person both at the state and federal level for the same crime. If that is the case, then a presidential pardon can prevent states from prosecuting him. There is currently a case being considered by the Supreme Court and it has to decide whether the constitutional ban of double jeopardy means feds or states cannot both prosecute a criminal for committing the same crime. Currently if a person is acquitted of murder at the state level for example, the feds can charge that person for violating the civil rights of the person that was killed. If the Supreme Court rules that that is double jeopardy, then a presidential pardon by Pence can potentially wipe out the pending state charges against him also.

    Ford's pardon of Richard Nixon says that Nixon was pardoned for all crimes committed by Nixon up to the date of the issue of the pardon. That means even a presidential pardon cannot wipe out future crimes. That means if Trump is pardoned, he can still be prosecuted for crimes he commits after the date the pardon is issued. Given Trump's criminal nature, there is no way he would stop committing crimes after he has been pardoned. The question is whether he lives long enough to be sent to prison.
