    They are firing and forcing people to quit left and right at my day job. My dept has had a 70% turn over(usually around 20%) and just closed down half of its operations. I have to get my ewhorin' butt in gear and make some money before I get on da' axe list.

    Has anyone else had this???

    The company i work for just cut all of our temp employees, about 25 or so. Then they laid off 18 management positions, I think ill be able to ride this one out unscathed. I hope so anyway. When obama gets his plans going to boost construction and bridge repair our business is gonna go through the roof. Really sucks for me because I'm not a very good IM, and i have no back up plan as there aren't any other jobs around here.

    I know exactly where you're coming from, my dad got laid off a couple months ago, so I can't let my parents go without anything because of it. I gave them $2 grand last year for bills, money is what helps the world turn I guess and there isn't enough of it.

    Educate yourself quick, pick up some freelancing on here, you'll do just fine. Read, read, read, read and do more reading from this forum. But for now I can only settle for the scraps until I dive into IM completely.

    I got sacked on Thursday. Not recession related, though. I thought I was safe from that in HMRC until I received my P45 for being a muppet.

    Anyway, I've got the next 5 weeks off on full-pay notice, so I've got the next two months to get my act together and hopefully stay full-time self-employed with IM. I won't be ewhoring, though. Not my style.

    Not quite how I'd planned it, though... first payment due in next month is just over £20. So I've got to really work my ass off to match my previous wage from the Rev.

    It's one way to find out whether IM can pay a wage!
