I have noticed a definite trend while looking for a 2nd job/better paying job. I have quite a bit of experience and am considered pretty charming by most (shocking as that may be to some here). Everyone wants to hire me,Yay! Sadly no one wants to pay me enough to live on. "We'd love to bring you on board, I think you'll be a real asset to our organization. We're offering 12$ an hour". Erm that works out to 1400$ a month take home. With rent being 1000$ minimum water, electric, food and transportation how in hell do these companies expect potential employees to survive? I KNOW I'm not the only one stuck with this quandary. Thoughts? Suggestions?
