I am a grad student with a part-time job. I recently started a second part-time job working in my field. I am excited and love the opportunity to begin working in my area of expertise.

Is it acceptable for a boss to send text messages to you about work, outside of working hours?

In the early 1930s, having grown tired of the vapid romantic comedies and historical dramas that made her a star, Louise Antoinette strikes a self-compromising bargain with a rapacious movie studio boss that will enable her to direct and play the lead in a motion picture intended to help liberate and empower women, a screen adaptation of the bawdy Greek anti-war comedy, “Lysistrata...
