Salary is a scam. If the salary does in fact pay you more, think about the hours you work. Making more money...can essentially be bad...more taxes, less free time. Sell your labor short and the house will cheat you...it's their money...When you can be hourly and have a steady schedule you are lucky in this business. Work more for more money...salary is a great way to take somebody with skill and have them average hourly for a song. Don't be a stooge.
