Thanks guys. I keep telling myself " be happy you have a job you love".
It's very hard for me to move on if I think something is not fair, but I'm working on it.

I am in a situation that I don't care if the pay is fair or unfair. I just need money, I don't care if I love the job or not....believe me, I feel that terrible. ...in January my boss promised to hire me as post-doc, but now they say until I haven't passed my viva I can't be paid as a post-doc. I am practically working as a post-doc without any pay......and I'm married.....see how terrible I might be feeling.

I feel like the whole science thing was a mistake....I shouldn't have left my first job to continue my studies.

Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is like expecting the lion not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.

I dont know what to think of academia anymore... its a system that supports you and eats you alive at the same time. Its really not all about love to science.

In many ways (and labs) it really becomes a business, where those who are able to attract funds are taking into account (irrespective of how good the science they do) and might survive up to a tenure position.

A PhD student, a person pursuing higher education at the expense of his private life and economical security in the name of science, is often reduced to only a number (monthly salary = purchase of 5 antibodies = 5$ working hr).

look for another job, until then stick it out. you can always pull an ultimatum but that is risky.

At least, One should get a raise in the salary yearly based on inflation.
