Warning Warning Dr. Smith!, as the Robot used to say on Lost in Space. The other disadvantage (beyond the low pay) is the fact that the KMT Crone, who is the accountant will cheat you or attempt to cheat you out of your pay.
Not a little, a lot. The one time I wrote for them, when I went to get my pathetic pay (which was for two articles) the female KMT Crone Creature only gave me one of the pay envelopes. I assumed the single envelope contained both sets of cash. Fortunately there was someone (who will remain nameless to protect the innocent) right there at my side who knew how the Post operates. Without even saying anything he took the envelope out of my hand, looked inside and told the Crone Creature to give me the other one too.
The Crone Creature just glared at him sullenly, shuffled the papers around on her/its desk and then pulled out the other envelope.
I guess the bitch thought it would be a cute joke to make me drive back out there and/or she figured that I would not bother and she could simply pocket the cash and forge the receipt (i.e. typical Taiwanese accounting practices). And I do thank my nameless friend for immediately seeing the gag and jamming it.
As an added bonus when you go into the decrepit offices (think Office of the Living Dead, complete with cobwebs, a spooky bust of some forgotten patron and boxes of shit piled up all over the place with dust two inches thick) before you can hop in the rickety elevator to go up to the floor where they keep the Accounting Crone and her evil minions, you must get past the Undead Guard (age somewhere between 65 to 200 years old) who insist that you sign in and wear a sign on your tit
