Yes I understand you. The only issue here is the medical check because you never know how long you will last here. And the age issue. Thatís why I am taking this decision to leave China. But here I can make 1.5M in 5 more years!

Why not a legacy? I don't have a 4 year degree and it's coming slow, figured I can go there for 3 years and make some bank, as a previous regional guy I know I'm missing on a big hiring wave at a legacy right now.
Really I donít know what are you waiting for???? For your age I will come to China with my eyes close! You can work here 20 years and get out of here with $15M. There are a lot of companies that have excelente contracts. I am one of the first foreign here in China and also I am the first foreign instructor. I get a lot of extra pay for being and instructor. Good luck and come to China!

Omni has THE HIGHEST first year pay, AFTER you get off training pay. I think it's about $115/hour...

It's all about the contract. Cancellation pay, min guarantee, any other soft pay. That's where money talks.

Needless to say both are six figure jobs starting out, even my friend at WGA pulled over six figures his first year. Good to see this.

Back to the original topic, I dislike China. Always feel like a Lannister in Winterfell.

Then you need a new accountant or know what TF youíre doing next time. This is your fault. Itís called a foreign tax credit and itís not top secret. Iím calling BS or dumbass.
