Second Thoughts About Money And Job

I know in the end it is my decision but I feel I am at a crossroads here. I have accepted a new job at the end of July. It does not start until the middle of September . I am having second thoughts. The hours are good and it is only 4 days. Parents are laid back and the kids sweet. Now the part I struggle with, It is $2 less than what I should make. No PTO or sick days, 1 week vacation. I have been asked not to take any days off jan-march. Mom will work from home 2 days a week, dad one. It's a Super Tiny Home so I feel I will have to keep it quiet. My job ended in May so I wonder if I jumped the gun on taking it.

One last thing when I got her to go up 75 c I said " sorry still too low" they said - maybe  in a year when we can give you a 25 cebnt raise. I still said no. then the call saying I am worth the 25 cent. If they are struggling this bad, How will I get a raise in the future.

Do I take it and hope for a better job in the future ( the contract says we end it whenever we want) not signed yet.
Jobs are hard to find! Need advice!

I'm always weary of work at home parents, they have a hard time understanding that they just cant come in and interrupt when your working with kids. Having to stay quiet is a no no. How will you laugh out loud, or sing to the baby? How will you teach surprises and unexpected noises if it's always quiet? Seems to me they just wanted a warm body and dont appreciate your expertise or value your experience.
A job that starts a month an half from now seems sketchy. I would ask for a trial week, at your rate and see how you feel about it. DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING UNLESS YOU ARE 100% SURE YOU CAN GET OUT OF IT.
In my contract I stated any form of emotion or physical manipulation or harrassment is grounds for me to quit without notice.
My advice, do a trial before signing anything. If they cant afford you now at your rate, there is no future pay raise. They dont value you.
You will find someone that will pay you your rate, trust me.
Unless you really value how laid back the parents are, which can often be worth it if you get along fabulously

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
