    Re: Would you quit your job?

    I've never made more than $25,000 a year in my life, even working full-time, and I'm no longer capable of working full-time or even keeping most part-time jobs. I wouldn't stop trying to improve my financial situation (or contribute to society), but I'd sure as hell stop trying to work "jobs".

    Not a chance. At about $100K I might have to think about it but definitely not at $25K

    I'm honestly sick of this anti welfare stuff. Why is ok for the Government to be dependent on other countries to pay their bills but not ok for the people to receive ANY help at all to SURVIVE?

    The question would depend upon how that $25,000 compared to how much you were making at your job.

    No, I would not. I like what I do. Though, I hope to retire a little younger than most people do. I have a HUGE stack of books I would like to read before I die...

    It isn't alright The US Government should not be allowed to borrow money either.

    It is perfectly ok for people to receive help to survive. It's just not ok for them to receive such help from unwilling members of society.

    I realize that is the way people think about it, but I honestly don't. If I have to spend my time working I want to get as much in return for it as possible, but if I'm doing nothing but spending time working out and being on the beach surfing the amount I will be willing to accept is far less. As long as I'm doing nothing towards the money I receive I have no reason to be picky about it.

    I know I wouldn't, how about you?
    No, and yes. I would continue to work off the books (tax free) but gladly accept my "fair share" of the wages of others.
