Are you working in the area you are working because you love what you are doing, or because you are well paid (or paid at all)? Would you take a worse paid job if you liked it better?

Im in a work situation where in i hated but i cant leave(not until january 1st) because of some pending benefits and commissions that cannot be claimed if you leave. But im gonna go for a worse job as long as it pays. It's up to me to wear my own weather wether my job is worse or good.

I hope you have luck in your new job. To stay untill you can get the benifits sounds like a good idea.

lol Thanks for the comment. Naturally money makes it easier to do a job - hopefully it is possible to find a at least partly stimulating job at the same time as being paid.

The only job I ever loved paid badly. The others I hated.

Unfortunatelly that's my experience as well... I think people use the fact that people are doing it because they want to - it makes it possible for the bosses to give low wages!
