It seems that so many people are losing their job these days, companies are laying off people left and right, and many of them are closing shop.

It's always better to be prepared than surprised...


I was laid off a couple years ago, took a couple months off since I was sick of having a 9-5 type job. Started trading currencies full time like I used to in college, haven't looked back since. I also bought a local coffee shop that was closing down in town, it has been a money pit but I was expecting that.


I still have funding for my research, but my employer is cutting corners where they can and trying to horde all money possible. I think it's universal, but only temporary. Let's see what happens tomorrow after the news conference.

Pretty secure, work for a company in the health care sector. Government, health care, and education... best bets in a recession.
