helpless in Baltimore, Maryland

May pay got cut a month ago and my boss is on my back about doing more work. I am being paid 32% less then what the average person who does my job receives. I cant afford daycare and my job keeps saying this is not working but they will not fire me. I am afraid if I just leave to find another job paying more, I will not be able to receive unemployment. I feel like I'm working for free and I don't know what to do!!!! Any thoughts???

Welcome to the job force right now--with all the cuts, most people are doing the work of two. However, at least you have a job when a lot of people don't--and aren't sure WHEN they'll get another one! You should work hard to keep your job because in this market IF you are lucky to find another job, it will often be for less money. Be grateful and keep a good relationship with your boss so that you will have a good reference for the future.
