That is so so sad. I'll say a prayer for her and her children.

I'm worried about one of my Nieces. She is raising 5 kids on her own, and lost her job a few months ago. I think Welfare was helping her out some. I don't know what she is going to do. Wish I had a lot of money!!

I don't know how people are supposed to pay rent and utilities with iou's. Can't you just see Walmart taking an iou for toilet paper?

This is the general discussion forum so I think anything goes here. Sometimes it helps to talk things through that are bothering or stressing us.

It is getting ridiculous. One of the benefits of my job is that my employer pays part of my health insurance. Now they want to tax that benefit as if it were part of my salary!

I saw in the newspaper today that a town near by is having a "Tea Party" this Saturday. I've never done anything like that before but I believe I'm going to go and participate. Looks like we better stand up for ourselves or the govt is going to run all over us.

This recession is really getting bad, but I will take this opportunity to jump on my soap box. Raising taxes and fees when the people who pay them are hurting never works. Our local government but fees of $81 on us this past year and now they propose to raise the property taxes 12%. When less money comes in our home, we have to make concessions. We cannot eat steak, we have to stretch hamburger. The pockets they reach into to keep their reckless spending going is penniless. Where are they going to get it. They need to learn to do without just like the citizens that pay the piper.

Keep on track

I'm a CA state employee and I now have 3 furlough days a month which equals about a 14% cut in pay.

50 is the new 30.

I am in Calgary, Alberta. I believe we're one of the last cities being affected by the recession. It was not too bad until June. There was a report last month on our employment rates... seemed like we finally got hit as well. I can't imagine how bad it is going for other provinces.

They said they might have to do this a few months ago. We are really hurting out here.

I never heard that, I'm from Canada but we usually hear everything about the States. Hmmm, strange.

i heard on the news this morning that the state of california is giving out iou's to their vendors because the state has no money. how are these vendors going to pay their bills with these iou's? this recession is getting bad but a state like california can get away with giving out iou's. will the mortgage company, electric company, gas company, telephone company & the supermarket take an iou from me?
