As most of you already know, I have 2 full time jobs.
Podcast Production (now married with terrestrial radio and management of a young ladies career) is one of those jobs and my regular day shift job is the other.
The day job was forced to lay-off a bunch of people on Friday and while we saw this coming, it still rings hard with a sense of dread, worry, and compassion for those folks who got walking papers. Let’s face it; getting laid off even 5 years ago is not the same as getting laid off under this economic climate. It’s bad. I can’t say that this is the worst business climate there has ever been because I only have my own frame of reference. The GDP numbers just released show only a 1.6% growth. I’ve never seen the GDP that low. The number simply means that country isn’t really growing economically and that’s really bad.
So, we worry. We worry about our friends and we worry about ourselves.
There might be a light at the end of the tunnel but so far we seem to be having trouble finding the entrance.
