my husband quit his job for another. when he told me about this other job i asked a series of questions and i said you better make sure that you ask everything. my husband can be a whimp when it comes to asking questions when it comes to money or work related issues. i don't know why. i mean he has the right to ask how will i make? will i make at least the same amount that i do now, before i quit. i told him i would support him as long as he is told that he would make the same if not more at this new job. so he quit. so i assumed that the answer is yes, then a few days after his new job starts he tells me that at first since this is a new business he can't pay him what he classified the ad for. then later the next wk i find out that he isn't getting paid drive time. at first whenhe was working i was ok with the rate of pay thinking that he is making it up by the number of hrs working but it not getting paid drive time then he is only really working 5-6 hrs a day at $10. his old job paid him $13.50 but we used about $600+ on gas. here he rarely drives and only about 3 blocks. somehow thought it doesn't seem to of helped save money. anyway long story short i have been telling to tell his new boss, hey when will i get paid more, when will i get paid drive time and he never has a solid answer. so i figured the only to jault him out of this habit was to tell him i'm leaving him. which i did, but i'm being crititized (sp)by his family. i'm not saying i'm divorcing him just that i'm leaving. i feel he needs to grow some nuts. if i stay he will continue to let people take advantage of him. now i'm feeling ashamed that i felt i had to go to this drastic measure. it's not an issue where work is just slow that he isn't getting paid, i strongly feel that this guy is taking back everything he is to be selfish to keep what he can and use the men he has working for him. he told me he was going to give this guy another month but i'm like no. we can't go another month. he is not making even half of what he made before. i will leave if he doesn't grow some nuts soon. i can't have him be more concerned about this person over his own family. that is what he just said a few minutes that he really liked this job and wanted to help joe get this business going. come on this guy is probably getting paid $500 plus per house and they do about 2 -3 per day sometimes more. the business is him cleaning out banked or foreclosure homes. tell me it doesn't sound like he being taken advantage of.

I can't even imagine. I wouldn't be able to handle the no nuts thing period. It sounds to me like a seriously bad choice but hopefully it will pay off soon. If he plans on staying another month, how does leaving help though?
