I agree with spiderlashes5000. Many times it's not what you know, but who you know. I would love to get out of my job, but I don't know where else to go. I've considered schooling, but I'm not sure if I could get hired at my age. Where I work now there are a lot of very young new hires. There have been a few older ones, but they have been hired at less money.
It really sucks. I wish you the best of luck.
