Somebody quit? Couldn’t take the heat? Anyways, $75 grand year + benefits isn’t too bad. Why don’t they offer that job to a struggling TA? Just kidding! But that is a decent salary and interesting that they are hiring in the middle of a strike.

    TA’s are making over $62 an hour. Where else can find find a job that pays this well while you are a student??

    TAs do make a good amount of money! I sure hope I can get a TA position when I go to grad school!

    Listen, my Arts TAs were glorified undergrads with average gpas who still lived at home, and I couldn’t believe they were actually marking my papers.

    Of course, TA’s in the sciences, comp sci/mathematics etc. usually possess real skills (however social skills are usually lacking) and can genuinely help students who are weak in these areas.

    Might happen…I am getting the hell out of Canada…too cold and too many strikes ;)..go somewhere..Italy maybe..

    Italy excellent choice!
    I would go to germany for a year or two. I agree, Canada is not the best place to live in for graduates/young adults. I will return here, however, when I turn 50+.
