    I have orientation (for this job I've had for almost 4 months) this week. Do y'all think I have to wear work clothes or can I just show up in jeans and a t-shirt? This is the orientation that will give me my actual uniform so


    edit: I'm not gonna see the answers to this, I'm going to sleep. Good night turkeys

    Albuquerque is like that, too (requires a business permit to conduct business within city limits, even if you are self-employed) but the good news is that I've been reamed since day 1 on it so I haven't had to find out by surprise that I have to do it and get a big bill for all the years of working.

    At least it's $35/year so it's not as bad as San Diego.

    Yeah, in the grand scheme of life and bills $35/year is a drop in the bucket, and the $180 is annoying but not the end of the world either. I'm going to call the office tomorrow and try to talk my way out of the late fees (on account of their lack of clarity in regards to crowd-sourced work, or something like that...) so then it'd just be the $105.

    If it wasn't specified, I would probably just go in work clothes.

    wow, I'm surprised that was the current year fee plus penalties. I thought that figure was 3 years of licenses plus penalties.

    GL with calling the city. When I deal with goverment, I usually find that they say ignorance is no excuse but they are willing to work with you to get into compliance rather than just slam you with a citation for being in violation of conducting business without a business license.

    New Mexico has gross receipts taxes (like a sales tax but taxes on not only goods but services). I had a services contract with an out-of-state employer so I didn't think the GRT applied to me becuase it was not conducted locally. My government got into contact with me to find out why I wasn't paying my GRT and that's when I learned that I should have been paying it as my situation was not one of the GRT exclusions. They didn't charge me with failure to pay GRT as they said they'd rather get me into compliance and caught up with current and past years' GRT and we worked out an arrangement and got caught up with a minimal amount of penalties added since I was working with them and not fighting them.

    or fired for unprofessional conduct/dress.

    Safe thing is to go to the orientation wearing what Jaded was the last 4 months and then she can continue working in that outfit or change into her employee uniform if they give her one.

    Wear one of those shirts with the cat that flips people off. The brand is RipnDip if you haven't heard of them, but I assume you have.

    @Jaded@Jaded wear whatever you want. If you want to dress like a princess, then go ahead. They need to know who you really are.

    they must be lurking! :wink:

    after my other post, a bunch of them approved and now i"m over 5K. I haven't figured out how to use Hit Tracker to figure out how old those were that just got approved. All I know is a bunch of MLDataLabeler were paid as the number of submitted HITs waiting from approval fell by a few hundred.
