Cool Wow ! Beyond Sweatshop Labor....

I found this so funny - I had to post. Obviously this job was not meant for Americans (or anyone else except maybe Zambians) - but this job is listed at 15 Zambia Kwacha per hour - which comes out to 0.00317125 USD..... LOL. I talked to my brother who lived there for 17 years and he said a loaf of bread could be $4000 Kwacha - so I don't think it's a lot for even Zambians....

Oh my. There's got to be a few missing zeros, or a mistake in the currency! Fifteen dollars? Fifteen thousand ZMK? Even fifteen hundred ZMK would seem low, for bilingual teachers with internet connections.

Default huh?

That is a convoluted mess -- A German company is seeking an English teacher with high fluency in French who wants to be paid pennies (US) in Zambian currency. Yeah, okay.

There must be something wrong with the listing because pennies/hour is hardly "• An attractive hourly wage"...
