Can't afford to keep my current job.

I'm back...............

I have been doing temp/contractor work for three years now and I can't continue to do so. I don't get any vacation, sick or personal time. I'm not able to get any over time. I'm making less than I was when I work for a company full time. I called to request a raise today since I been with this company for 1 year and I was told they don't have it In their budget. They will have to contact the company I'm working at to see if they can free up some money on there end. Which this company is tight with a dollar so I don't see that going well. It's flexible with allowing me to leave and pick up my child but I don't think I can afford to stay. I have benefits with my husband plan but what if they cut that out next year like most companies are doing. My rent goes up yearly and it's was being to be a struggle to main everything. I have made major changes such as finding a free before and after school program. I have switch telephone providers. I have not turned on my ac but once so far. I paid off my car. I would like to move to a cheaper place but it's not looking good as of now. My finances aren't where they user to be as far as savings etc. I know I have to find something else want to get some positive feedback or other people thoughts.
