Romanian term or phrase: ca ne munceste ca pe caini si ne plateste ca pe....
E un raspuns la intrebarea "ce va nemultumeste la angajatorul dvs. actual?". Fraza e neterminata in context, iar eu nu stiu cum e expresia originala in RO.
Macar prima parte daca ati avea idee ce echivalent exista in EN, m-as bucura mult.
Multumesc
