I am so sorry to hear that. The global economy is really going to be worse. I don't know when this situation will change. Do you have any plans? Perhaps look for another job or meanwhile study will be a good choice. I love China

I think that some places are doing better than others. I don't know anyone that has lost their job...yet. But than again I live in a very rich area, although I'm not rich myself.
