You need to compare job A (mom) with job B, salary ? Working conditions? Chance for promotion ? Job security ? All things being equal give mom notice and ask her to meet new salary....
However things get sticky if you are still living there and being supported by her. If so you need to either cut the apron strings and make your own way in the world or live under her rules and desires.
I would not be leaving my moms, just trying to figure out if I would swing working one or 2 days a week at the other place. It's already been sorted out that I will be the kennel owner when my mom retires and or if something were to happen to her. Typically grooming jobs are commission based, usually it's 50%, at my moms I make either 30% plus and hourly rate, or if I'm off the clock 50%. I'm not sure what the new job would offer pay wise, I didn't ask her on the phone as I'm not sure if I could make it work, she told me to call her if there is anyway I would pick up some hours there.
I'm 26 years old and I do not live at home, My boyfriend and I own our own house with our son a short distance away. I have no desire to stop working at the kennel. My mom relies on me a lot at work and I'm very busy with grooming there and I'm not sure I would be able to pick up hours elsewhere but I know what the other groomer charges and if I am going to be making a 50% commission(which I'm not sure I would be) I could easily make $100/day, more if I learn how to groom faster. The extra money would really be helpful since I feel like I'm kinda drowning right now.
