I just started trucking to help pay off some of my loans. I like it more than I thought I would, but recently my girl asked me to stop. She says I don't spend enough time with her anymore. She said to pick my job or her, that's messed up! I like making money, I NEED it! I feel like I am screwed either way here, but should I keep the girl or the job?

Anyone who forces you to choose between them or your job needs to leave. Keep the job. It is more reliable.

I've always been very lucky to have super supportive bosses and teams when I need to take some time out of the office to help care for my kid/family. But I know so many others in the workforce aren't as fortunate. I was hoping the power of the Jobcase community could lend some advice to those who find themselves needing to make some hard decisions when it comes to childcare/family care and work.

I was laid off from the oil fields recently. I was a mechanic and operator. Since then I have put out so many applications I lost track. Noone has even so much as called me. I do online applications as well as going in person. Nothing has worked. I have a family to provide for. I couldnt even get a warehouse job. I am willing to start at the bottom and prove myself.

I’m very exhausted I’ve done everything I can do, the job search is going nowhere lots of dead ends. Today was the last straw I have to go talk to the lawyer tomorrow and file for divorce something I really regret doing no matter how hard I’ve tried to prevent it I will be hurting for a long time and it’s gonna take even longer for me to get over this.

You shouldn’t relate your job to a divorce because if she truly loves you it wouldn’t matter if you’re in a card... see more
