Don't mind working longish days as I kinda like what I do & I want to get value out of my day.
As the years roll by, Im more inclined to work longer days then take whole days off rather than work short days & take part days off. Maybe that will change down the track ?
Each to their own & it all comes out in the wash kinda thing.
Anyhow, Plucka, I think you're 100% correct.
Even though a higher hourly rate can be obtained on the job, we need to consider everything else that goes into that.
Realising that there are NO other benefits to be had.
The only realistic fact, is the bottom line.
