    Holy cow, what a mess.  Can you two survive on just his income?  And still pay for the wedding?  To me, any job and income is better than none unless you can easily make do without.  I would go along with this job and move, all the while looking for another better, closer job.  I wouldnt want to postpone my wedding/life in this case.

    Sorry to hear this – it is a tricky one for sure espcially with the way jobs are in South FL!! I know we live here too and Fiance company just got bought out and he was laid off with no notice!! he has not been able to find anything above min wage and even that has not been able to actually get a job offer!!!  He has been offered a job in AZ and will be relocating out there until I find something and can join him. 

    I would think twich about just giving up a job right now – any job is better than not having one and being in the situation of unemployment running out too!! Take the job but sign up with local job agencies etc and find something closer to you.

    Sending you lots of positive thoughts for a good outcome for you. 

    Good Luck

    @Genesis31:  Is there any way that you can get contacting the agencies ASAP and see if they are are to offere you some advice as to what is the REAL job situation in your field in your local area?  They gave my Fiance no hope in truth which is why he applied out of state BUT at least we knew and could make some decisions too.  Which area of FL are you in (PM me if you like – I may have some agencies I could suggest for you too as I dealt with tons of them when I was moving down here from CT just last year!)

    @Genesis31:  I would definitely not quit until something is lined up then.  One with no job and and the other with unstable job  is definitely not a place I’d put myself in.  It sucks that the commute will be longer and increased commuting cost with no additional raise to make up for it, but as long as the net income is still positive, I’d put up with it until there’s a better option.

    In this economy I wouldn’t quit a job without having another lined up.  I say as much as it stinks, make the move and start aggressively looking.  Hopefully it will only be temporary and you will find something quickly!

    You need to get a new job. Start looking now, update your resume, post it in CareerBuilder and Monster and Indeed. Update your LinkedIn profile. Use Indeed to search and apply for positions.  This isn’t normal and shouldn’t be acceptable…you can do better, I’m sure!

    Do not leave until you have a new job lined up? how much do you guys haveleft to pay on the wedding? what was you orginal budget? What is more important, a nice, expesive wedding, or marrying your best friend?

    I know it hurts and a pain to drive that far everyday, but stay at the company until you at least find another job.  As you accept the move I don’t care if they give you a raise leave the company as soon as possible when the right job becomes available.  Reason I say leave because this company is very unstable.  Owning a company myself I would never place 50 of my employees in a situation like this.

    you need a job. over an hour commute sucks but i know MANY people who do it. My dad commuted into NYC from NJ for 25 years. Over an hour each way and a bus fee. He left at 6 and never got home til 8. A lot of people do it. Take the job and be thankful you have one, continue the wedding plans. Just keep your options open and keep looking – one day a better job will come along. keep the faith!
