So frustrating. I'm trying to find a new job.  I keep seeing these ads, they are a mile long, with a lot of responsibilities, no problem, asking for a degree, again, no problem for me, I have a BS.  Get to the compensation portion, $14.00-$16.00 an hour!  WTF?

Wow.. $14-$16 an hour isn't much! Specially having earned your bachelors. What field are you in?

LOL That is double minimum wage here. Most people would be happy with that.

I hear ya in 7 years my dh has been working at his Job they have only added more to his list of things to do. He's now a executive chef Making two thirds of what he should. When he confronted his big bosses about it they threatened to fire him for insubordination!!! PS we qualify for food stamps that's how little he makes but we do not receive them. I don't like using the system.

Yep. I had a job offer me $14 an hour. They expected me to relocate with no financial assistance from the company. I am a biologist. I hold a Master's. I passed.

Cool story. What do you do for a living? Did you graduate from college?

Where are you?

They pay really well around here and actually the minimum wage for the state is higher than the national wage.

But again...beggers can't be choosers and money is money! Well unless unemployment pays better?
