What would you do? I am very good at what I do, but work for a company that is extraordinarily stingy. They pay me about 2/3 of what I should make. I believe I have other options, but not too many due to the location. Should I start looking? But my job is relatively secure, so that’s a bonus in times like these. Otoh, I am so sick of having to think 3 times whether I can buy H&M clothes for my kids, whether we can have a meal outside or take a regular (not luxury) vacation. All my income goes to fixed cost, which are pretty bare bones.
