Advice please...

After about a year looking for a job... I finally found one !!! Started in March. I just found out that they only offer three days vacation a year and three days paid sick leave per year. It was exhausting looking for a job. Should I start looking again ? Wife and son are not happy with me at the moment. ( four more years till retirement )
