I'm furloughed since March of this year. I depend on unemployment to meet bills and that's scary. You really shouldn't be depended on that. So the company that I'm furloughed on has a super benefit package that no other company can come close to. I don't know when I will be called back in. The unemployment is going to run out at the end of July. Out of the blue I got a call from a different employer offering me work starting in the middle of July. I researched them and work wise seems to get great reviews. But they have little to no benefits to offer. I will make more money, the hours are better, closer commute and it is doing something I like to do.
I'm 59 and in fairly good health . I'm afraid to turn down a job offered to one that I have no idea when I can go back. I'm at the bottom of the seniority list. So any thoughts of what I should do? I'm being pulled in both ways and not sure what to do.
