  • My husband's job isn't being affected by the recession because the parent company has contracts all over the world including Iraq. The downfall to that is my husband will have to go overseas in a few months and if they ever decide to close our office (it's the only one stateside) we will be relocated overseas somewhere.

  • Psychologist isn't recession proof.

    People aren't going to spend $100+ on counseling if money is tight.

  • My husband is an attorney and as of right now we have not been hurt at all by the recession. He is not the type of attorney who handles frivolous lawsuits.  He does more corporate and business law.

  • I sell Medicare Insurance policies...We got the baby boomers flooding the gates and I can't get them to stop shoving mandatory overtime down my throat. But I'm not complaining because I'm happy I have a job that is really taking off now.
