As you well know, I think about such things all the time. Knowing my mental state, take that as you will. My current job isn't very challenging; it's a means to an end. I work to live, but I don't live to work. I have a plan, and having food and shelter are two very important parts of that plan.

My fear that things will get worse is omnipresent. That said, I don't mind my job. It pays better than being a security guard, I work with some really nice people (some of whom give me candy), and I'm not expected to take my work home with me.

my current job isn't very challenging, and honestly the pay is great. The hard part is that its hard to consider it just a means to an end because I have such disdain for what I'm doing. Even thinking about it conceptually tends to make me ill. I wish I could say I had a job that I just don't care about and that the people are nice enough and yadda yadda yadda, but the honest truth is the success condition of doing my job well means that its that much harder for me (and tons of really good technology sector folks like me) to find a job tomorrow. Yes, I realize its temporary employment, but that's what my job is. My job is to put people like me out of work. And my wacked out since of honor and right and wrong and all that jazz makes it very hard for me to sleep nights thinking about that.

Damn you, Batman and your code of ethics that I grew up assimilating!!!

again... its not so much about the job sucking... sucky jobs I'm entirely used to and entirely capable of handling... its the constant knowledge that I am actively doing something that is hurting lots of people... myself included...
