    Default Which Job do you Prefer?

    Given that many of us will probably want lots of money to buy our gear, which Job/remuneration do you prefer?

    Hey, I'm working more than 12 hours a day, up to 7 days a week and yet paid less than 10K a month!

    #2 would be the choice as well... money ain't everything.

    but i still long for the 4-day work week.... an elusive goal no doubt.

    That's why I said "at least".

    From a ROI's perspective:

    Option 1:
    12 hours X 7days X 4.33 weeks = 363.72 hours in a month
    Earnings per hour = $27.49/hour

    Option 2:
    10 hours X 5days X 4.33 weeks = 216.50 hours in a month
    Earnings per hour = $23.09/hour


    Difference of $4.40/hour.

    Option 2 operates at approximate 19.05% discount to Option 1.


    Any of the above Options got OT pay?

    Notice I said Option 1 is AT LEAST 12 hours, and option 2 is no more than 10 hours (so no OT needed)?

    Anyway, assume no OT in Option 1.

    Okay, which do you prefer?

    Option 1 working as a Photographer?

    Or

    Option 2 working as some pencil pusher?

    >> Work at least 12 hours a day, up to 7 days a week, get paid >> $10k a month

    are you sure? normally those who get paid for $10K and above usually works 2 -3 hrs, socialise (golf, visit etc) for the rest of the day.
