My dh lost his in Nov 2007 and started his own business (right as the recession started). It's been tough, but this is his second year so things are a bit better. I lost a job in spring of '08 and got another only to lose it in Nov of '08 due to budget shortfalls. So I used unemployment benes for a while and now I am trying to work on my own too.

Anon :04, your dh's side of the family is lucky. Sadly some of those "secure" jobs are being lost as well. Not healthcare, but some of the other white collar jobs. My dh lost his job as a controller in 2007. Fortunately everyone needs their taxes done at some point so having his CPA licence helped him start his business. Otherwise idk what he would have done. He probably would have had to take a huge pay cut and still wonder about his job security with another company. But with being self employed we've taken a cut in salary, but we've also gained the flexibility of working on our own so it was a good thing he got laid off.
