Would you choose stability over money? My husband is an electrician and somtimes he will work for 3 months or less and then be laid off for up to a month which is when we almost lost our house. My husband had a choice to take a $6 pay decrease doing a totally different trade but have the stability but we will struggle quit a bit or to continue doing electrical work and make the big bucks but not know if we will be in our house the month after next. When my husband asked me what I thought I told him that Im more scared to death him not having a job versus the struggling part because we have a three yr old and a baby due next month and Im a stay at home mom so hes the only income. I dont know if we made the right decision but no one is going to help us next time save our house if hes laid off for a month at a time and the struggling part just sounds more realistic then having no money at all. Did we make the right decision?Answer Question

I would take stability. Over the high paying unstable job. Unless you can save so you can still pay the bills when he is laid off.

With stability you can sleep better at nights. You can control household spending and such. Hopefully with stability you have good benefits and he can move up in a short time to make up that $6 lost in salary. As some one said he can find part-time weekends to make up that $6 lost.
