My son is getting lower bonus because of the decreasing sales. In such special time, I believe the trade union has to take a realistic approach to keep the business running. Some are accepting lowering their subsidies and allowances, to help a bit. At least it is better than losing job.

I'm still paid the same hourly wage, but I'm working fewer hours than I used to. The company I work for is in a labor crunch, and the corporate office has decided to issue a wage freeze, too. Nobody will get raises until the wage freeze is lifted. I can't complain too much about the wage freeze, but I'm very disgusted with the number of hours I'm scheduled for recently. It's not just about the money, either. I'm a department manager, and I'm having a lot of trouble keeping on top of things when I'm being scheduled for less than 30 hours a week.

Hi there. Well, since we're payed a fixed salary and rarely are paid for overtime hours worked, I'd say that my salary is basically the same.
