most of the countries that aim to uplift their economies are working on some stimulus plan. the government think that this may help slow down the crisis that the world is facing now. Some allowed their working people to have double jobs. this sounds great right? but remember there are costs associated with it like less and less time with family and loved ones. priorities now come in. who or what will be your first priority?

the job comes first. the family second or maybe even third. the job provides money for food and to pay the bills, the family doesn't do any of that. and if a person has to work 2 jobs, then so be it if that's what it takes. Now some would say "but wouldn't you rather be with your family"? Ummm nope. I can't stand my family. But I do worship my cats. Good thing my job allows me to be with my cats all the time.

i understand that. when there's no one for us anymore, other species can be our best buds too. you seem so practical to me. i seldom find people like you. also very broadminded. nice meeting you here.

I was working in 2 jobs before, and was very hard, belive me, because i was very tired and never i can t sleep as i want, or i can t stay to much with my family. For money is good of course, but for us as person, can be so,,,tired with double jobs. As a man, maybe is ok, because a man don t work in house , don t cook or clean house, but for a woman is not good.

most women are already multitasking at home. they don't deserve to be seeking for more jobs just to feed the family. the father should think about that. if all mothers are doing that then there will be lots of broken homes now. sometimes mothers that are often out of home have families that are not that strong enough.

I have also worked two jobs before and it was hard as well as tiring. I was working everyday and I didn't really have any time off. When I did get time off I spent it sleeping or resting. The jobs really affected my social life. I didn't have time or inclination to do anything. But it did somewhat pay off when I got my paychecks. I was making twice as much so that was a good thing. But it got so hard trying to juggle both the jobs as well as school. I couldn't do that so I ended up quitting one of my jobs.
