An old coal miner once told me that he quit because the mine was too dangerous...but "when the kids start gnawing the paint of the table legs, you know it's time to go back to work". In his case, he decided to go to work in a different mine, although it was in a different state. He said the day after he went back to work, the old mine blew up and killed a lot of miners. In those days, the widow got $100.You'll work the hours to put food on your table and support your family.
Right now I'm teleworking and have a 4 day work week so I'm not complaining. I also know what everyone else is making. And yes, some people are making more money than they are worth but not my problem.
