harrodsburg, ky, USA.
I worked in a factory 10 years, gave 110%, got told the pay scale was out of whack and they were going to give biggest pay raise ever. New hires got $1 an hour more, i got $.02, with a promise of no raises for 2 years, and insurance premium going up, in essence, a pay cut.
I applied for a job with KU, and got it, best decision ever, with a $3 an hour raise right off, and steady step and annual raises.
20 years of that and retired.
Im not saying quit the job, im saying get out and look for better.

What's your profession?
For the past 8 years insurance. Thats about all I'll say on it.

But I've worked a lot of jobs. I bounced between having 2-3 jobs at a time for a long time until I found one that pays and gives me the free time I like to spend that pay.

Totally depends on the job and future at the company. I put up with a lot at a job for 13+ years because I was promised the CIO job. Then they moved the company to Fl.
