Either get working or get out would be my advice.

encourage him to keep going, but when he can to maybe look into something else. I KNOW it's hard to find a job right now. Trust me.. I'm looking. But maybe he will find something that he will be happier with. Good luck to both of you :)

Well... the thing is whether you like your job or you dont like your job is irrelevent.... if that's all you've got and it brings in some money then you just have to deal with it... thats what I would tell him.  The majority of people do not like their jobs and do not like their hours.... but that doesn't mean you just can't go to work.. you gotta keep making money whether you like how you're doing it or not.  Maybe while he's working he can look for something he may like a little better.  Sorry I'm not much help.

Take a pic of your family minus him and give it to him.  Tell him to keep it on him!  That pic should be his motivation.  If his family isn't enough, then I dont know what will do it!

Tell him to look for something else while he's doing this job. Maybe he'll find something better. Sorry, I'm not much help either. DH hates being in the Army but he doesn't have a choice.

remember to let him know you're thankful for what he does do.  its hard to keep pushing forward sometimes when you're both frustrated and have a long road ahead.  he'll feel more motivated being reminded that you need him and that you care.  always remember that you COULD be on your own, things COULD be worse.
