Recently I ran an ad here for a personal assistant for a specified number of hours one day/week. I invested a great deal of time in the interview and on-the-job training every week. Every work day was very stressful, with much less than the usual business and groceries taken care of for which he was receiving the full pay. The third day, after giving him the record $55 he asked, the 30-year-old male told me, “I am worth much more than $10/hr. and you are able to pay it,” never mind that he had agreed to the $10/hr. (Try telling that to a business for a certain paying job, though I am simply an elderly widow.) We worked 52 years with no help of any kind, living within our means, and I now share most of my modest income with family and the extremely poor here and in other countries. Question: Is this attitude typical of most males here?
