Nothing immediate, but my dad's approaching retirement and his 401k's been halved. My mom doesn't really have much for retirement savings due to past job problems, so they've been put in a bad position there.
My job's secure for now, but it depends on the decisions Obama makes. I work in the defense industry.
well we have to make sure we don't spend too much money, but we live pretty much the same as before the problems. my mom didn't/won't lose her job, we're not starving, we're not struggling to pay the bills, etc.
I got fired back in october just for calling in sick on the bosses birthday, and at the time my pay check was being used to pay for a trip for choir as well as my groceries (because of allergies to foods I have to eat differently than the family). On top of that, I'm graduating and my step-dad got his hours cut. It's not been pretty lately.
The question is wrong, it should be "Have you or your family been affected by the recent changes in economy?" or something like that, because everyone is affected and has a part in "economy" as such. ... But, meh, I digress. Yeah. There's something I don't like in the horizon.
