I work for a non profit organization. We help people live. Why isn't there more breaks for us as employees of non profits. We do jobs that int eh "for profit" world would make two, three four times as much as we make now, we pay horrible rape taxes on the pennies we do make, we get no fringey benefits like annual bonus', company trips, education benefits etc and when we try and work outside the non profit industry w3e are laughed at because all our experience is non-profit. Can't there be some break for those of us who work our rear ends off helping others? A tax break would be beautiful.. just to recognize that we sacrifice so much financially (basically, I am ruined financially because I spent so much money on university to make this piddly salary). Even if emplyers recognized that the job we do in a non profit is just liek they do in the for profit world in 99 percent of cases.... I have budgets to meet, I have tough business decisions to make and I am accountable for my job.. just like any other job.. but yet I just work for a non-profit, i can't possibly know about the real business world.

I shoudl just go on welfare.. would make more and have more help.

Ugh
