We've been desperately number crunching and are finding that our finances (contract here, or permanent there due to healthcare costs) would work out fairly similar to the UK...

Contract workers healthcare co-operative?

I'm trying to find a workaround.
My husband (like most people I expect) can earn much more money as a contract worker than a permanent employee.
However self...

Re: Schools in the USA

Re: Schools in the USA

Re: Schools in the USA

Re: Schools in the USA

Thank you both for your answers, I was hoping that I was massively generalising and it seems as if I was! I will research further...

Re: Schools in the USA

Hi Hotscot, I had meant that I was a bit racist for making assumptions of an entire nation.

We are thinking perhaps Florida, Seattle or California. But I was assuming the culture was similar all...

Schools in the USA

Hello!

Re: Crohns and healthcare

Re: Crohns and healthcare

Thanks for all the replies guys!
