I think my job is pretty secure. I've only been at this hospital for 3 years but I'm well liked, do a good job, and am pretty flexible. I frequently float/pick up shifts on other units. To me it's a win/win situation because I gain skills and show the supervisors that I'm flexible at the same time.
I was worried about my husband's job and still sort of am. He's an electrical wholesaler for a family owned business. Most of his customers were general contractors and private electricians for the residential/comercial building boom so he took a hit last fall. Instead of rolling over, he busted ass to pick up a ton of goverment contracts and recently landed 2 huge six figure, long term, contracts. His boss is very pleased with him.
My mom is shitting her pants. She works for the CHicago Suntimes which filed for bankruptcy yesterday. She's taking a 30% pay cut, which includes a 1 required unpaid week off. My brother sells windows and always has low numbers in the wintertime but his numbers for last spring/fall weren't so hot either. He's hoping that the stimulus will help boost his sales but he's not holding his breath.
