I understand... it's a heck of a thing - and I wonder if toxic work environments will increase (considering the crappy economy, and it being an employers market) ... Employers may try to get away with any/everything because it's THEIR market now, unfortunately. Well, this could be another thread.

Well, why didn't I think of that? Of course...that's my problem. I am either at work or asleep. There is no time to 'have a life outside the job.'

Of course, you need a job to survive...hence the trap.

I am kind of in a different situation. I don't hate my job per se but I hate the fact I recieve no benefits, the pay isn't great especially considering my education, and I don't see things improving anytime soon even if the economy recovers. The above is causing me to hate my job profession not the work itself or the environment. For now I suck it up and just do my job, but am actively investigating/persuing a career change.

Personally if I had a decent paying job with benefits, I would keep it and learn to like it no matter how much I hated it.
