    How many hours are you working this week? And do you have a physical work job or a brain work job?

    I'll be working 58 hours this week and I have a physical job (that's still a brain job!).

    I'm not sure. I had to travel this week to one of those "stay in a hotel and sit all day and listen to people with good attitudes tell you all the ways you're doing your job wrong." 3 days of that. It wasn't much work but I feel like it was.

    40, and I finished my week at 5:00 today.
    I used to do 56, but I don't intend to again. Now if they need OT I'll do 46 or 50, but at least I'm still done on Friday.
    At one point when everyone was working 56, they were moving so slow I think they could've got more done in 40 if they had a little rest. Just feeding machines for high production might've made sense, but we do a lot of setups. A lot of small runs and prototyping. Tired machinists take forever.

    I retired last August....I need to go back to work so I can get some rest! ;) This week I'm moving my 92 year-old mother into a senior living facility. I have three brothers who can't be bothered....although they know they have equal shares in the will....PLUS IT'S THEIR MOTHER FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!!!!!! I have to do what I feel is right, and hope that karma evens things out someday. (sorry to rant...I'm just tired right now)

    I'm a precision machinist by trade but I'm running a CNC mill in factory now. The work sucks and the hours are rough but it pays really well. No one wants to pay a decent wage in a job shop anymore.

    Seems like most job shops are stuck in the early '90's as far as wages go. It's odd in a way because what I did before took a lot more skill and knowledge but I'm making way more money now.

    Not that it matters, I hate both! Lol

    Yup. That's a true story. I'm really trying to avoid working for a larger company because I enjoy my job, but the pay is terrible.

    I've been hovering just under 55 hours for the past month, which I'm not very happy about. I'm not paid by the hour.

    i'm retired, so i'm going to work 8 hours this week at my sit on the butt Saturday job. I am getting ready to jump into something fulltime, though. I do not have money to buy guitars. this is unacceptable.

    hopefully the true-crime book i'm writing will bring in a few nickels.

    Somewhere between 30 and 60. I have one of those brain jobs where I'm often thinking about it even if I'm not at work (on the other hand, I'm also posting here throughout the day, so...). It also fluctuates wildly from week to week.

    Same here. Had to retire early due to loss of vision (thankfully not total). I would like to work at least part time - many guitars I want but can't afford. :cool:

    teaching school, 50 hours a week or so. No physical work but enough stress to make up for it. 12 miles a day on the roadbike saves my sanity (and bloodpressure)

    40. Grocery. I love it but it's draining. I really only have myself to worry about and "getting ahead" is kind of meaningless to me. So I do my thing and check out at quitting time
