I live in Buenos Aires. My job is to help with homework and classes for students who need help with that and until recently everything was going well, but last week the parents of many of those students signed a petition to fire me for wearing very short shirts and showing my navel They say their children can't learn anything that way, but I've always dressed like that.

I am not telling you what you have to do, thats nothing to do with me.
What I am telling you is that a dress code at work is perfectly normal and if you were being paid directly by the parents we wouldn't be talking about this you would just do what they wanted (assuming you needed the work).
I am 27 years old, do you think I still live with my parents?
