Hi Everyone

Just wanted some thoughts on our line of work and how it effects families. I currently work away from home (5-6hrs by car) on a 2 week on 1 week off roster but my wife and i have recently have had a baby boy and she wants me home more. I also want to be home more but i love my job and we need the income. Im in a hard place at the moment as the situation is hard on us both...any thoughts or geo's in similiar positions

Cheers

What kind of geo work do you do where you are on for 2 week periods? What is your education level?
