Certainly I will differ to your expertise.



It's all the talk of "rumors" that somehow everyone "who has spent and time in Switzerland should know" about and her mentioning that Novartis working with Kelly Services is impacting salaries "in Switzerland" (if my memory is correct, I didn't go back and check) that sort of raises questions.



If you are in Basel, these two companies might have some sort of impact. I doubt they make an impact on all of Switzerland. If her goal is to find out the impact multi-nationals using interim companies for staffing on the employment market in Switzerland her project is flawed. She should be including more companies and interim agencies.



Of course if she wants to spend time on a flawed premiss that's her business. I think though that many on this thread question if that is really her motive.



Not that I agree that everyone should pile on.

This. Basing a research premise on a rumor and single pair of observations suggests to me the need for some due diligence as preparation. But the OP said qualitative research .... So maybe this is the due diligence step. But still....rumor based research? I've done more quantitative methods myself, though i respect qualitative methods when done well.

Could be semantics, although this many people balking at language and intent suggests a problem there too.

I heard that they kidnap Christian children and drain their blood to make crackers with which they celebrate arcane rituals involving monsters made of clay and then they throw the bodies down the wells to poison the townsfolk. That's what I heard.


Wait - who are we talking about now?

Heigh ho!
Who is there?
No one but me, my dear.
Please come say, how do?
The things I'll give to you.
A stroke as gentle as a feather
I'll catch a rainbow from the sky
and tie the ends together.
Heigh ho!
I am here.
Am I not young and fair?
Please come say, how do?
The things I'll show to you.
Would you have a wond'rous sight?
The midday sun at midnight.
Fair maid, white and red, comb you smooth and stroke your head.
How a maid can milk a bull!
And every stroke a bucketful.

A standard saturday night in glarus

Re: Research on experiences of employees contracted via Kelly Services at Novartis.

Too much time on some people's hands...."Novartis" will have to fire more crap people, I should hope. Otherwise it will negatively affect the ones who work.

(Sorry I'm late. I mistakenly ventured into the real world. They have coffee there! And places to do Christmas shopping where you can look at and touch stuff before you actually buy it!

I can't guarantee I'll respond promptly in the next 7 hours, either; the cricket just started.)
Thanks for the unexplained drive-by groan on this, greenmount. Just to clarify, "touching stuff" is not a euphemism for shop-lifting, and I didn't make any reference to any specific ethnic groups or nationalities.

Are you thick or what? I've groaned at you because OP addressed you a question re. your activity as moderator and you could have at least told her you don't find anything to be moderated, instead of being dowright nasty to her, as other usual suspects here.
Get your grip, dude. You're nasty.
How much more clear than that do you need me to be? Drawing, something?

"Downright nasty" ... what a cosseted life you must have led! People must have it really easy where you come from if they get offended by an observation that there's a real world out there to be enjoyed.

I refer my honourable moderator to the thread where all Romanian women are cheap whores and all Romanian men are thieving gypsies.
