Hypothetically Speaking...

Okay. Let's say you have a job that's not your "real" job. It's a second/part time thing that you enjoy. Currently at this job, you make $x. Now, your employer is readjusting their budget and they would like to pay you anywhere from 39-93% LESS than you're currently being paid depending on their revenue for the month.

What would YOU do?

(if this is too vague I'd be happy to be a little more detailed.)

P.S. Happy Birthday to my wonderful boyfriend. :)

I'd put 39-93% less effort into the job.

Just kidding. If you're doing the job "just for fun" then in reality, it shouldn't matter... would you do it if you weren't getting paid at all? This is a very interesting question.

I don't think I could "work" for no pay.

it depends on how much your extra time is worth to you. hypothetically, your pay should be going up not down. but if there are other benefits to working this part time job like business connections, social outlets, enjoyment because it's a hobby, or honing skills you could use down the road.... then carry on. you just have to figure out what you get from the job that is worth while.

on the other hand, if there is no real tangible benefits, other than passing the time and making a little bit more money (soon to be less), then if you can find something similar that pays better, move on.

Wait, I'm sorry - are they a non-profit and are you a volunteer? Right. If they want to pay less, they should hire a less qualified individual.

It matters how much you'll miss doing it? I would be bitter everytime i'd show up.

If you love what you are doing... then I'd stay but if you don't then find something else!!

If you are doing it to cover bills then I think you are going to have to look for another part time job...if it's your passion or for resume building...maybe you can talk to your boss about padding...er...I mean adding to your resume.
Good luck. I'd be outta there like "Later bitches" ;) LOL

I would ask which one has insurance benefits and stay with that one probably...I know it isn't alluring but it's practical..although it ispossible to perhaps increase your hours at x, get insurance and go work there full tie or almost full time...
