Question Help!! New job. Should I take it or pass.

I need Opinions guys! I need to make up my mind fast.
Was hired for new job. They have enough work now to last till end of July. Pay is $20_$55 per hour depending on type of job I am on. 75 mile drive one way.

OR

Currently making $2000 per month working about 6 hours Tue-Saturday and 2 hours on Monday which will last indefinitely.

Do I stick with the one I have or shoot for the good paying one??? Drive one mile and pick up company truck

and with the first one are your driving the your jeep 75 miles both ways or no. cuz if so your gonna use 3/4 of a tank going to work each day so that means ur filling up every day. i vote the the one you already have. unless there is work after july and your not driving a jeep 150 miles each day

75 miles is a long way. consider weather, time traveling, vehicle wear and tear, gas.

It sucks doing long commutes. I know (I do a 1hr 40mins one way) now u said drive one mile and pick up company truck? Does that mean for the new job so if that's true I might do it..... if u get a company truck and they pay for gas!

No company truck for the new job and to start out I would be driving the Jeep.
The company is booked for work until the end of July. Slow due to the economy. They are continually bidding on jobs but competition has really put a hurting on the big construction companies here.
I'm a concrete pump operator and that is what I would be doing.
I have been at my current job for 13 months and no raise yet.

you would have to figure in the additional cost of the new job, the raise would be nice, but if you are spending it on gas and maintenance, then you arent any better off, and then theres the issue of if there will be work after July and how much work if any.

Sometimes changing jobs is the only way to get a pay raise, but how's the economy in your area. If a lot of people are hurting for a job, then I'd wait it out, if you can line up another job if need be, then go for it.

Well I asked for another raise, before I have even started. If I get it I will take the job and if not I will stay where I am. I just told them for it to be worth it I had to have it.
