    Would you quit your job?

    If you were guaranteed a $25,000/year income by the government would you quit your job and stay unemployed?

    I know I wouldn't, how about you?

    $25,000/year is no where NEAR enough to live on, so even if I didn't like my job, absolutely not.

    Regardless, I love my job, so no.

    Hell no, I have kids!

    Plus no money and too much time? That would drive me insane.

    Re: Would you quit your job?

    I'm semi retired and only make around 30k a year to avoid sucking to much out of my retirement savings so I guess I'd quit working for 25K a year except that a lot of my income is a result of cleaning up my land so I don't know what I would do with all the fire wood and lumber I now sell. That would be a problem.

    Too much time? Are you insane? You won't think that way when you get my age.

    I like to keep busy about 4 hours a day, then I like to take a nap and then read a book.

    I answered yes. If you asked me this question 2 years ago I would have said no. I don't have as much pride as I used to have. I used to live in fairy tale land. Now I live in the real world.

    Just because you don't have a job doesn't mean you aren't allowed to work. You can get lots of stuff done if you had all day to do it.

    You could become a muscle man. You could have an immaculate house. You could have an immaculate yard. You could read all the best literary works of all time.

    This poll is not very unrealistic at all.

    This decision is being made all over the place. I work at a hotel. The housekeepers make about $7.75 an hour and in our slow season they may work 25 hours per week. That's only $10,075 per year. If they have 3 kids and one is under six years old the government may offer them $8,000 to stay at home.

    Minimum wage in most US States is $7.25 per hour. That equates to $15,080 per year. Lots of people live on less than $25,000. Where do you live? Disneyland?

    I have way too much energy for that. I would be climbing the walls. I can usually read for about 45 minutes in a sitting, then my body has to go do something active and my social nature starts craving stimulation as well (which can get expensive)

    Something like a good rum and coke and prolong that, but only so long, then I am in even worse shape, lol
