Would you rather work a job you hated and make $15 per hour, or work a job you absolutely LOVE making just $7.00?

I would work a job that I hated. I would do it for my children. I live in such an expensive area that I unfortunately do not have a choice. But only if my children were of school age, if they are not then I would not put my children in daycare for better pay and added stress. Right now my children are not school age and although money is tight we rather be home with them instead of me making more money.

Oh, cant we have it both ways? lol Of course we all want to work for $15 an hour doing something we love, but with the way the world works these days, I think I would choose the higher pay versus the love of my position. I love my electricity, and I love my tv and internet, I love to eat, and have a night out and I love my house and would like to keep all those things and you just simply cant happily maintain those things on $7 an hour. If you could you would so stressed out from pinching and scrimping you would be too stressed out to even enjoy working at the job you love so much. I think its kind of crappy how they determine what should be the wage for certain jobs. Doesnt it seem like the easiest positions in the world are the higher paid ones and the ones you really have to work hard at pay you the least?

If I have enough money, I will choose the job making just $7.00.
