I'm stuck at a dead end job but cant afford a dollar an hour pay cut........
Does anyone no what it means to take one step backwards to go two steps forward?
Its like everyone wants instant gradification these days.

When I got into the apprenticeship, I took a $6hr cut. It was tough but paid off. In 2005 I quit my union job and took a job as an E&I maintenance supervisor. That was a $9hr cut. I made that up just after a year. 4 yrs later I went back to my union job with a $2 cut and now I am way better off. They were tough decisions since I had kids, but it's really paid off. Not only in wages, but also experience and knowledge.
