A year ago, I was working a menial p/t job making about $14K a year. I did that for 7 years after being a SAHM for 7 years. Got a f/t job that paid way more than I ever thought I'd make, but was laid off when COVID hit. I got a new job last month, but had to take a pay cut from the job I was laid off from. Well, after only a month, I was offered a promotion. $20K more than the high-paying job I was laid off from. My total compensation will be close to $100K. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could do that after being out of the workforce for so long. And I'm not like an engineer or something. I do admin work. Dh has never really come out and say it, but he's made snarky comments along the way. First about how I don't contribute anything financially, then insinuated that I was laid off because the job was over my head, not because of COVID. This promotion shut him up and he's suddenly supportive. F him. This promotion means I can afford to leave him now.
