Let's say every job out there payed £35,000 per annum, with the same amount of hours worked per week and the same amount of annual leave/holidays. What would you do and why?
Would you be more inclined to choose an "easy" job as opposed to a more stressful one?

I would absolutely pick the easiest/stress free job going. Something that ordinarly wouldn't pay anything close to as much as £35,000 like picking apples or working in a quiet country pub. Why bother busting my gut doing something diffcult like medicine or engineering if I'm not going to see any real reward for it?

(This, btw is an example of why communism doesn't work)

So are we using your value of 35k a year? In that case I would go for something like a bin collector.

PhD students survive on a fairly modest stipend, lots of people have ideological drives to do things.

I would probably continue my dreams and still go for the job that I want now.

That job being a medicinal chemist researcher/an academic.

Yes, it would be tough, but a less stressful or easier job would get boring, I couldn't be bored for the rest of my life, even if I was getting paid £35kpa.

Either continue my original dream (IT consultant or Software Engineer) or I'd probably work in a Middle to High-end fashion retailer or a job relating to fashion lool.
