Yeah that's it - never change your job for any reason. Be grateful you are given work by your employer, bow down to him every morning, be an obedient little slave submit to his every wish. Great advice really, it's sure never to get you fired and will ensure a good income for you. Oh wait - no it won't: by staying in a dead-end job you'll miss all chances to improve yourself and accumulate savings, and eventually you'll get laid off anyway.

Didn't you sign an offer letter with the new employer? If not, YDI. But if so, contact a lawyer (and ignore any internet lawyers in this comment area).
