1/27    When would you take a paycut?  Would you move to another job
        if you were getting less money than before?
        \_ The last two years I've taken paycuts due to no raise (company
           wide, except executives) and increased benefits costs. It sucks.
           \_ That's not a paycut.  That's inflation.  Only gubermint
              employees have COLAs as a birthright.
                \_ so why are employees at Berkeley paid 20% less than
                   the industry average?
        \_ If the alternative is to have no job, yes I would.
           \_ would you move jobs for less money if the other job
              is "better"?
              \_ That question presumes alot, but yes.
           \_ Here's a good example, My brother-in-law worked in San Jose,
              making quite a pretty penny.  He ditched that job for one
              with 2/3 the pay in Northern California.  Why?  San Jose
              is Hell, and considering the change in living costs, it
              wasn't that big a pay cut...
        \_ I just turned down a job paying $80k and I make $63k. I'm in SoCal
           and don't want to move back to the crappy ass Bay Area.
           - LA #1 fan
           \_ You rejected a 27% raise while others are lining up for
              unemployment checks?
              \_ Sometimes there are other priorities.  Though it would be
                 nice to hear that he could refer a friend. -- not a fan of LA.
        \_ annoyed at my previous employer, so i resigned without a job
           offer (indeed i had not even sent out my resume).  this was
           last summer.  annoyed at my current employer, so i am letting
           my current contract run out in feb.  i have refused to renew or
           even to discuss a renewal.  again, no job offer and i have not
           even begun to look for another job.  my wife prefers that i
           hang out at home for a while or maybe travel for a bit.
