Would you work 80 hours a month for an extra 200 bucks to your income?

What kind of work? Is this after you pay for a babysitter?

Is my math right, $2.50 an hour? I would say it depends on what you are doing. Watching an older child. Doing something you love. Doing something you were already doing before but weren't getting paid for it LOL.

What is a deduction in aid? As in snap/tanf/daycare assistance? If so then yes.

If it would get us off of aid, and there was the possibility of increased hours, then yes. Gas can be mitigated with carpooling/ride sharing and buses especially if there is an increase in hours in the future. I'm assuming that you would be working only a few hours, many times a week for gas to have such a large impact or at some distance away from the job site?

Re: WWYD

I voted no, but would really classify myself as a "maybe" - it would all depend on the work (babysitting at my home vs. manual labour) and if I required childcare or if that was covered.

Re: WWYD

No. Not unless it meant food vs not or being able to pay rent or not. Even then I'd look for alternatives. I worked hours like that when I was younger. I feel I've "paid my dues" to my career so to speak and would not sacrifice my time like that unless absolutely necessary.
