  • My boyfriend does...for reasons I can't discuss here. It doesn't have anything to do with the economic crisis or anything though.

  • No, not really. I work in the insurance industry. Not the most stable, but my job is pretty secure at the moment. We just had our 3rd quarter meeting and our company financials are stable. No government bailout needed for us!

  • My DH is one away from a lay off. I didn't worry until I found out that work is slowing up in the commercial sector. Construction and steel industry are not good fields to be in right now:(

  • A lot of times yes. But I cannot worry about what I cannot change. I thank God every day that my husband has a job and the health to work. So I will just do my best to take it one day at a time.Even when the economy was strong, there were still days I worried, because nothing is sure except death and taxes.
