Well the wage difference between tolerable job vs hated job is not signficant, so it just boils down to a question of if the extra income (after taxes) to put up with the hated job is worth it. It doesn't seem that way from what you are saying.
My perspective, and I am not a big believer in the whole "I love my job" mantra many people subscribe to, is that you should search out tolerable jobs. So I would quit the job you find less than tolerable. If you really miss the income, you can always start searching for a second 'tolerable' job.
