If I was working at a job and felt like I was being overworked and underpaid, I would take the appropriate actions to better myself and not be in that situation. Albeit it takes some time, but ultimately you control your own destiny.
If the man is okay with driving at those rates, what’s the problem? My gf complained to me about her job not promoting her and not making enough…my response to her was “Well what are you waiting for? Start looking for another job” Plain and simple.
