I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing what I am experiencing.
We hear about the tuition crisis and the parnassah crisis and all that. I am one of those who are victims of these crises. My problem isn’t that I don’t have a job. I have one. I actually have two. But the earnings simply don’t cover my expenses. I can’t just pick myself up and try another field, hoping to bring in more money. How can I suddenly give up my job? And how do I know I’ll earn more in another field?
And it’s not like I am earning pennies. I am making close to 80 grand, but that’s a joke when you consider all the expenses a frum family has. So I am choking. It isn’t the parnassah crisis. It’s the parnassah choke.
My oldest child is now entering shidduchim. Our finances are going to be a nightmare.
What is a person like me supposed to do?
