Well as the title says....we got jobs. I am working for a picture framing company part time casual and Stephen just started today in a full time permanent position. The relief I feel is great even though the money he is earning is awful. He has gone back about 5 years from what he was on at home and our dream of owning our own house here looks highly unlikely but at least I know we can eat for a while
Advice to anyone coming on a temp visa...do your research where wages are concerned as we are really going to struggle for a few years. In the UK we got family allowance and tax credits, here we get nothing. The good bit is I can take my kids out for the day anytime and spend only the petrol needed.
