    I agree. 83k/year 8 hrs a day with weekends off- that's peanuts.

    I would walk out right now without a seconds hesitation.

    Seen many jobs out there 155k 175k even 200k a year!

    At 116k/year he was making 55+ an hour! Dry van stuff out of GA. Atlanta to be precise.

    On a serious note, if you intend to stay the course, start saving as much money as you can in case the paychecks do stop coming.

    I hear Swift is hiring!!!!!

    Seriously, stay where you are for now. As has been said, start upping your savings just in case. Pay off CC to get yourself in a good position if thing's do go south.
     
    bzinger and truckdriver31 Thank this.
