Would you rather...make $3,200 a month(after taxes) or $2,700 a month (after taxes). But the lower paying job offers you full coverage insurance(just for you, no dependants) and the higher paid job has no insurance but more flexibility. And go!

I don't have health insurance and ds father is not involved at all. The job would cover me but not ds.

I would compare the insurance that they offer to my own private insurance. Then go from there.

How easy and cheap would it be to get insurance for the rest of my family and myself if going with the second job? I think that would be the deciding factor. If you can afford insurance through somewhere else for you and your family then I would go with the higher paying job since it's more money and has flexibility.

compare the two according to how much insurance would cost with both, the fact that the higher paying one doesn't offer a 401k contribution or life insurance, etc.  You're only talking about a $500 difference too.  And what kind of flexibility does the higher payer job offer?
