Default Work hours

How many of you would take a dead end, labor (blue collar) job that would get you nowhere, but pays you $3000 a month with full benefits and you will have to work swing shift from 1-9:30pm M-F? Social life would be would be impaired because of the work hours.

Let's just leave it at that with a simple yes or no answer...

I would rather be on the bread-line with a job that I love, even if it pays s***** wages.

With good pay, benefits, etc. I would have to say yes. Screw social life dude. I'd rather be able to feed and cloth myself.

Dude $3000 dollars a month is awesome. My parents together I don't think make that much and we have a good life, so I would imagine with $3000 dollars coming in every month you'd be living a nice life. You'd be able to have your own house, yes HOUSE not apartment, your own car, your own life pretty much. I would take the job for that amoutn of pay. A social life can come later. Besides I'm sure you'd be able to squeeze in a social life with only a 8 1/2 hour shift. There's always the weekends!
