    so...I have a weird problem

    I have been offered two jobs
    one promises more pay after 30 days
    one will be the same pay for...forever basically, unless I took on more work/became available.



    more pay is 40 hrs a week
    regular w2 job
    10-6 and includes saturdays
    after childcare, fuel etc I would literally only clear about 150 bucks a week from it...if everyone is satisfied with the trial peried I'd clear about 350 a week


    same pay job is about 3 third shifts of 5-7 hrs at a time
    1099 job, and an owner/job I'm very familiar with. He actually called me with this asan emergency
    there would be no childcare aside from about 2-3 hrs a day but I'd have to force myself to go to sleep at like 8pm for those three nights to get up at 2-3 am to get the work done in time
    I'd clear about 250 a week.


    my problem with all of this is I was clearing about 700 a week after childcare until the contract died on my last job

    *sigh*

    I hate job hopping because I've done a LOT of it the last couple of years so I feel like if I take either job until something better comes along this makes me a deadbeat and puts employers in a bad spot.


    I have a lot more thoughts on the whole thing ...I was actually asked to start the ft job today but I said no, I can start monday but I'm really rethinking it after doing the math.

    it does doesn't it....

    I don't think I can handle both either..not realistically

    the w2 is really gonna fuck up kids appointments, any meaningful gym time, nanny is great and cleans the house but then I still gotta figure out what the family peeps are having for dinner etc
    it seems like very little reward in the end

    Shop away and don't worry about feeling like a deadbeat. Most, not all, employers won't lose any sleep over putting you in a bad spot. You need to look out for yourself, first. Looking out for the company might be in the top ten in importance.
    If gunners were as violent as anti-gunners believe, logically there wouldn't be any anti-gunners left.

    Agreed. 99.9% of companies out there are only worried about their bottom line.

    Well, Sheri, at least you're able to have multiple job offers. And I'm sure you'll make the right decision for you. If it were up to these A holes who run shiite tho, they'd say take 'em both, that's the American way!

    Even tho those MFers never even had 1 real job.

    If that other job is 1099 and you haven't taken your taxes into account, you're definitely not clearing 250/ wk

    If you have job related expenses you can. This job won't have enough to make a difference.

    nev is right, he's familiar with the job
    the write offs are very minimal for it..barely worth keeping track of

    I don't know what industry you're in but this sounds shady. What if they aren't "satisfied"? It's not a logical proposition. Once you agree to the lower wage you'll have no bargaining power except threatening to leave. IOW, I'd assume (for the purpose of making a decision) that I'd be payed at the lower rate.

    Just marry me and you can stay at home or as you wish.

    take the job the offers you the security you need, in the long run will pay off better, it's not obout how much money you have left but rather how much you can consistently save.
