I've been there before, holding down a job just for the money.  It's a miserable experience.  The best I can offer you is to keep looking, while you try to improve your situation.  One question, with all these changes what has happened to your top and bottom line?  If the places have gotten that bad are you losing customers?  If you are losing customers, are you losing more than has been made up in this guy's cost cutting measures?  Where is your profit now, compared to...
Welcome pmd18.  You have come to the right place if you are looking for information on off premise catering, as well as any other food related questions you might have.  As for wanting to spend more time with your family, as you can imagine, this topic comes up with us professional chefs quite often, and how we try to find a good work/life balance.
