    yup thats a major suk. The company I work for went in and out of bankruptcy in 2003-4, then got bought out by another foreign owned company which manages to stay alive with investment dollars between soft sales. There isn't a day that goes by that everyone on my team doesn't wonder when the hammer is gonna fall. Been this way off and on for almost 5 years now. What keeps us together is we like what we do and also have the liberty to work from home. However, that constant uncertainty can really wear on ya sometimes.

    I got the ax once, due to "down-sizing". :'( It was tough at the time, but I ended up in a much better place, comparable pay and lots more time for family and fishing. :) I just hope it lasts... :-/

    Hopefully, those folks will find their "silver lining" also...

    Reality is that I have never know a person that didn't think they were better off after the turmoil was over. Hard to see that when your in the middle though. ;)

    I hear ya man. Started to shut my business down and got to work for somebody. At least I won't be letting go of my product lines and taking a chance of getting layed off. IMHO, it's better to tough it out.

    teh suk for sure. 176 year old fire truck manufacturer bought 2 years ago by an investment company files Chapter 11, part of the reorganization plan is to eliminate ambulances (division I have worked for almost a decade, loved the job and product) - my last day is tomorrow. Got a corporate email today talking about how great things are looking for coming out of bankruptcy, blah blah blah - why would they think I care? Just want to make sure I don't loose the house, already sold the boat...

    Corporate America - teh suk :mad:

    Tek suk is my government job budget is cutting down by 51% this year and everything is going to be tight , but I thank god for not cutting me or anybody off the job at all. We'all stick together and hang on until the budget comes back up again.

    Several government department in another counties has been shut down this year due to budget because of property taxes and more taxes for stoopid U.S pigggottonnn and half-asses people in the white house.

    The whole U.S economy is getting worse and believe me it will go back to depression one of these days.

    Yee have little faith in the people who live here. We like our lifestyle and will fight to keep it. But we may have to endure some tough times for those who wanted to live way beyond their means.

    When I watch people walk away from debt and file for a second time in bankruptcy court I just have to wonder WTF is going on. Who do you think is gonna pay? Responsibility sucks. :mad:
