Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
You have until midnight tonight (it's Saturday, June 6th, 2015) to cast your vote in my Bohemian Rhapsody Battle of the Bands.
Click here to see the post and vote, if you haven't already. It's Wayne and Garth (with Queen) v. The Muppets. Tomorrow I'll cast my vote, struggle to add the total number of votes, and then announce the winnah.
Yesterday I wrote a post about how much it bugs me to try to talk to call center reps in India. Click here to read the post.
I want to add something about pay in call centers. ABC News reports that the average India call center pay is $2,400 a year. The average American working in a U.S. call center allegedly earns $20,000-$40,0000.
I've never worked in a call center. I've also never earned $20,000. The most I've ever earned in a year is $18,000.
Yeah, small town newspaper journalists don't earn diddly squat. Considering I can't find a job, I would be super grateful to earn $20,000. I also suspect that $2,400 goes a lot further in India than it does in the U.S.
Infinities of love,
