    Thats two now in 12 months and business isn't getting better. I think we're all pinching butt here at work. I'm getting sick of helping my buddies carry their stuff to the car.... /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    That sucks, good to hear you slipped through, though. Hopefully, the economy's on an upward cycle, as we're being told by so many news channels...

    Another company out by me just started massive cutbacks. Closing 8 stores of a chain, and laying off tons of people.

    i think that's the problem, the economy is being run by the newschannel... if you look at the market vs "upcoming" good/bad news. you'll have an idea of where the market will end up at the end of the day.
