Hey Warriors,

Jamie here and a little bit about me first. I work in a youth club where I help run programs like football(soccer) coaching, pool tournaments, bike club, badminton etc. I really love my job but also want to chase the IM dream!

But I've been a bit fed up with my boss recently, even though the job and the kids are great, my boss just acts as though he doesn't give two sh**s about his employees (me), not to mention having to work with incapable colleagues. And now to make things worse, my ever dependent paycheque is two weeks overdue. I've had to borrow money to pay bills and food etc. and now the people I've borrowed money from are on my back.

It kinda makes me wanna just quit my job and go all out on a limb and become an article writing machine until I make some money on my own.

What does anyone else think... should I stay or should I go?

Jamie D

    I think you should carefully consider it, weighing the options with a clear head. Don't be rash or base your decision on emotion. You have a lot of leverage while you remain employed, but quiting may leave you with fewer options to collect past wages.

      Thanks for the input and advice
      I guess you're right... emotional decisions can be such a burden sometimes...

    I'd definitely be on the boss about the paycheck though. He's in legal dutch if he's not paying so you can get a pretty good settlement if he fires you for insisting on being paid. You do need work while starting out - but I'd sure try to find a boss that understands paying employees on time.
