Remember that if you apply for a job and find out it is low-paying or they won’t accept you because you are Canadian, e-mail me and I will take it down.

A reminder not to take low-paying jobs; I didn’t put a lot of stuff up this morning because I felt that the pay was too low.  Nothing on here should be.  I’m always a little wary of the postings that don’t say to send a quote or what the rate is, if you think they are too low after hearing back from them again, let me know.
