    Pay Cut

    Would any of you be willing to accept a pay cut to do a job that you like? or would you rather stick to a good pay job you dont like?

    Thats one hell of a cut Brett. Is that before or after stoppages?
    All depends on how much of a cut really saying that I dont think you can get much lower than what Im on

    My mate took a 5k pay cut to better himself. Does that count?

    I took a 7k paycut in April to move to a better job. I love it!!!

    New job is more sociable, better hours, and no stupid indian call centre staff to deal with.
