Is it time to look for another job?

I work for a small company (6 people total) I've been here a year and within 3 months got a raise; it's close to my house and my dd's school. My boss got really sick about 2 months ago and things have been getting really slow, I work in the office and I open the mail and he gets overdraft notices from his bank every week; it hasn't affected our paychecks yet but I'm beginning to worry, he hasn't been in the office much due to sickness (he's 72) and every Friday I worry that we might not get paid; would you start looking for something else?

I would start getting a feel for the local job market, but I don't think I'd start applying elsewhere until I spoke with him about my concerns.  If he couldn't provide some assurances then I would start applying.

Yes, I would.  If he's in his 70s does he have someone in line to take over?  If not I'd be looking for a new job in earnist.

No, he's the President and everyone else works at techs or in the office.

Quoting PoplarGrove:

Yikes, I would definitely have something on stand-by or find a way to make a graceful exit. No bueno.
