With a check of $1236.53 you have to admit its better than flipping burgers at Mickey Dee's. So tell us all are you happy with that wage? Or unhappy & complaining it should be more? I know the mood of many youngsters just starting out in the work force. Is they want top pay even when they are starting at the bottom. When in the days I started out,everyone knew they had to work their way up to better pay,benefits,& working conditions. So let me offer you a good tip maxicoze,Happy are those who have learned to live within their means. As a rule contentment has more value than desired wealth.
