Just curious to see how many people are in the same situation I am in.
I hate my job, but I like the money.
I can't just switch careers and do something I would enjoy and make the same, without having to go to school.
So, are you forced to stay at your job because of pay?

I like my job..any job there are parts that are not fun, but overall, I have always loved what I do. I feel fortunate that I got a degree in something, and my career is based on that degree, and I do enjoy it. It can be quiet (I am in an office of 1.5 people, I am the 1), but I do interact with a lot of people...my previous job was in a 80+ department, so it has taken time to get use to the quiet. I make good money, good benefits.
That said, I am looking forward to retiring in 10 or so years.

Seems to be 50/50 on the love/hate ratio.
I am kind of surprised, I figured more people wouldn't like their jobs.
Good to hear that people do like their jobs AND it has good pay!
I think at the end of this month I will be quitting and going back to what I love, but will take a big cut in pay. (close to 50%)
It might just force my other half to get a job, lol.
