**** that. yeah youll get a steady paycheck and it will seem like you are making alot because you are saving alot because you never ever have free time to spend it! they will work you 90 hours a week and pay you for 40. they take your offtime and turn it into a "privelage" called "liberty" which is subject to being "secured" at any time.

Re: economy

******* economy! All through college i've worked at a place large enough that it'll take the Great Depression to close it.

Been there almost 5 years and now that I'm graduated with my degree i'm scared as hell to leave this job i'm a veteran at, and start somewhere in my field as the "newbie" and risk being one of the first to be let go!

Depends on your MOS.

Im currently full time for an Army Reserve unit, and refuse to go active because the pay is better for me here. I work 30-35 hours a week and can take off basically anytime I want.
