economic crisis!

Vent spleen here.

economic crisis!

PostPosted by McFuck » Fri Mar 27, 2009 3:01 am

Earlier this month the CEO of my company announced that "due to the economic crisis" there will be no raises this year and they won't contribute any money to employee's 401k. BALLS!

Today I learned that the building's owner has shut off the hot water. So we all have to wash up with very cold water. I guess I should be happy they still provide soap and toilet paper.

What's next? Will we have to work in the dark? Will our pc's be powered with little hamsters running on wheels? How has the economic crisis affected you? Vent your spleen here!!! :evil:

My husband has been made redundant :(

On the up side though, I got a new job yesterday, start in 3 weeks, earning more money. First time i'll have worked full-time for 12 years, since I had my kids :?

We've got the usual balls of not replacing staff when they leave,so we're short staffed an' all running round like twats! Shure the boss's are using it all as an excuse to get more work out of us. :x

I keep getting more work but less time to do it, since overtime has been eliminated.

It's funny because as soon as I joined capitalism the economy broke.

I can afford to eat food and drink a litre and a half of sherry every day, that's pretty luxurious, and I have my own room now, I'm not living in a hostel, ha!

Live in a room with three other people for four months, it's good for perspective.
They found him wandering round Regent's Park with a cheap bottle of sherry...

And like a fool I mixed them and it strangled up my mind, and now people just get uglier and I have no sense of time...

It's funny that it broke shortly after I joined in, too.

I think there's a lot of concern that many companies might use the economic downturn as an excuse to lay-off people and cut pay etc etc. There's been a few bits on the news about it and apparently some of the bigger unions are pretty worried.

Despite some people talking up the economy, saying it is well on the road to recovery, I disagree.

There has been an increase in house prices, but I am certain that is only a temporary blip. They can't rise to summer 2007 levels again so swiftly. Not when unemployment is still on the rise. Even the Tories are talking down the recovery. And they want power!

Okay, we may have stared over the edge - but I think a full recovery will take years.

Well said. Almost Charlie Brooker-esque, I might add :wink:
