Yeah, it's a step down and it is probably a lot lower status but, Hilary, it pays! Better a job that pays than watching the money drain away from your bank accounts! Plus, as manager, she'll have peons to boss around; surely that is worth the reduced pay-scale?
In any case, the Job Centres are pretty vicious; refuse three interview offers and you're looking at having your benefits stopped!
You know, Art is right; she is very beautiful but she is also cold and hollow inside.
