Educational Interpreter Survey. How is your overall work environment?

After 25 years as an educational interpreter I have noticed a huge difference in for lack of a better term the work environment.

The attitude toward interpreters.

Politics in the broad sense of the term from multiple areas and levels seem to be impacting the work area more each year.

I got into this line of work quite by accident. I did not wake up one morning and think, “Hey, I want to be an interpreter!”

In the beginning I fell in love with my job. I felt like I was making a positive difference in the world.

This is not a rant. I’m not venting. I am just curious how others in this field in other places feel.

Here is the survey question:

If you had to pick one describing your work environment as an interpreter would it be the video above or the picture below?
