    These are very short term jobs. These situations are for people trying to basically get a free vacation. One meal is generous. Do you know the price of a room and food at a Caribbean resort? Teach one lesson, eat lunch, and then go have fun. There are actually waiting lists for these positions.

    I know a friend that does that at a ski resort for a week every year.

      She made it sound like she just fell into it. I think she may have taught two classes or perhaps helped teach two a day. I think she only did it for a month so it is possible she filled in for someone, compared to the whole summer.
      My worst jump story:
      My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
      As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
      No lie.

        Yoga sessions in resorts generally run only about 45 minutes by design. In most cases, the vacationer is not going to spend thousands of dollars just to waste all that time doing yoga in an intensive session - it is just a curious novelty or just to stay within a routine while traveling.

        So, two lessons would not be unreasonable, especially if they alternate days which is often the case.

          Wouldn't call that a job though. I once got a free weekend in Cyprus through speaking at a international conference but I didn't see it as employment.

            We really shouldn't, because no monies are involved. It is an exchange of favors and from what I have seen, the cost food and accommodations would usually far surpass the amount of reimbursement one would normally get. It is usually a win-win for everyone. I got three nights and all meals paid for doing a one hour speech at a convention in Vegas each year for 4 years in a row. I was truly disappointed when the offer was no longer extended.

              When I first started at the Casino we had a number of employees that were living out of recreational vehicles in a little park set up in the back. It was a good deal for people who wanted to work there, but not rent or buy a house. Sooner or later some penny pinching accountant decided the casino was losing money by not renting out these spaces to paying customers. The next thing we knew is a bunch of people we knew were quitting and moving "home". This was before the Mississippi Gulf Coast gambling boats were destroyed by a hurricane.

              You can make a lot of money working at a casino, but the same casino drives up living costs for the local economy. I owned my house in Sulphur free and clear at the time, so I drove an hour one way and back to work. Later on I wrecked twice going home after working late shifts. I lived in that house over 25 years and I miss it!

                It's obvious... They're doing jobs Americans won't do...

                Particularly ones getting generous Social-welfare benefits...

                  This is pretty much it.

                  Head down to the Boardwalk in Wildwood, NJ. The seasonal workers on the piers are college age kids from all over Europe, and elsewhere. Their nametags also have their country of origin.

                  Flirting with all those foreign girls was part of the fun.
