Is it fair that I have two jobs?

I just thought of this last night. I was a waitress all throughout last semester, and just got a new day job. So now I work M - F business hours and Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at my waitress job. Is it fair that I have 2 jobs when some people can't even find a job??

  • you have to do what you have to do to make ends meet. it's hard in these times, and if you didn't have two jobs someone else would. i understand feeling guilty though

  • I have to have 2 jobs though, for me to work my day job it's $220 a week for my 2 kids daycare! Half my wage! I have to make that up somehow, and I need the experience from the day job to get better jobs in the future. My husband works too and goes to school. Yikes.

  • Yea you have to do what you need to for your family. That is what everyone is worried about. Just make sure your family has what they need.

  • It's totally're working hard to provide for yourself and your family. I know we're in a bad economy, but there are still jobs out there and it's up to those who want a job to search hard enough to find them. Kudos to you for working so hard!

  • of course it is fair, you went out and got them, you deserve them!! Some people dont even try and for the others that really can't find a job, I am sorry for them, but there is nothing you can do to change it.

  • Hey, it's all about what you want to do... Anyone can find a job, if they really wanted to.

  • Sure it's fair. I have 3 and I'm not feeling guilty one bit. The 1st is my Home Day Care, the2nd is Crossing Guard at the High School around the corner for 1 hour 2x a day. My Mom watches the kids while I'm out and the 3rd I work as a photographers assistant on Saturdays and sometimes on Sundays....that's college money. You do what you gotta do : )

  • Absolutely and don't let anyone make you feel guilty about it.
