Would like to ask for any and all wisdom you can share about my current situation..
Recently got 2 job offers from a unionized organization.. all else being equal, the difference: one starts now, the other in 2 months. the former of course would mean that my "seniority" clock would start now, the other would offer about $1 extra on my hourly rate.. it's not significant to me either way.. just would like to know what you would pick if given the choice between seniority or higher pay?
I'm fairly new and not quite used to having choices..
THanks so much!

Monetarily speaking. Let's say you make $30.00/hr now. In two months (based on 160 hr/month) you'll make $9600.00 . If you take off two months, that's $9600.00 you won't have.
The other job will pay you $160.00 more per month. That means it will take you 5 years to recoup that lost income. That's a long time in this business.
This is assuming, of course, that you will not have an income during this two month difference.
