Tell us: You know you have a good job when...

Resumes tell employers what you bring to the job. Job postings say what employers want. Often, it's flexibility. One ad: "Requires morning, afternoon and evening availability any day of the week."

A whole lot of the American economy depends on consumers.

We hear over and over, consumers need to borrow more and spend more to help the economy recover, but many of the jobs being created today are part-time or temporary. When jobs become insecure, our spending is affected.

So we want you to fill in the blank: You know you have a good job when _____.

When you come to work everyday smiling and leave the same way.

The boss needs you more than you need the boss

I know I have a good job when I only need one job to be able to put $ in my savings account.

When you get off the wage-slave treadmill and work for yourself. Then you decide what to do and when to do it, and you pocket all the profits without having managers, shareholders, families, and others profit from your efforts. Every day you get up early and go to someone else's idea of a "job" you shortchange yourself. It's downright humiliating.

You can live on your pay, there's a retirement plan and medical insurance, and you rarely work more than 40 hours/week. It's a REALLY good job if you get all of the above and management doesn't yell.

You don't need an alarm clock to wake up and you want to go to work every day.

you can actually afford to live in your neighborhood.
