My hubby will not recieve a raise this year as they let go 550 people a few months back. So they are working on the theory of "be glad you are employed, be thankful!" so no raise though we need it badly. I have fewer hours because sales are down 4%, as it was I was a Stay-at-home mom for 5 yrs but we were cutting it too close in paying our bills so now I make enough to pay for groceries or gas since I can't work more hours between them not scheduling me and I have no child care so we have to work the opposite of each other. My hubby finally started taking his lunch with him to work instead of paying the company cafeteria an arm & a leg every week. Sad thing is with same or little opportunites to increase our income we'll struggle as we have been or go down hill

This economic condition has definitely troubled many lives. Even I belong to the group of people who have faced different problems due to this bad economic condition. I was forced to leave my job because of bad economic condition It is due to this bad economic condition that it is difficult to find a new job. Let's hope for the best.

It hasn't affected me at all. I'm still working, making the same or a little more money. Bills fluctuate, but there's no real change for me.

It has very much slowed down my business activities. I do not travel as often as I used to on my business trips.
