Unpaid Probation In A Bad Economy

User Rating:  / 2

When times are bad it's an employer's market, so this new tactic on the part of employers (or driven by market pressures) comes as no surprise. It is a good way to weed out all but the truly motivated candidates and saves money at the same time.

Sleep Through The Bad Economy

User Rating:  / 1

Cryogenic CapsulesUsing cryogenic technology, people can now sleep through the bad times until the economy has rebounded. This new form of suspended animation allows investors to wait out the depression and subsequent rebound. This is not for everyone, and does not come cheap.

Media Affected By Bad Economy

User Rating:  / 1

Media FailingOne thing I have noticed is how the economy is hitting our local radio stations. I am sure it is doing the same to other media, such as TV and newspapers alike. All of these businesses are driven by advertising revenue, and when that fall off it causes management to panic.

Car Sales In A Bad Economy

User Rating:  / 2

Car SalesWith the economy as bad as it is, many people are out of work, and those who are still employed are keeping money in reserve for when they lose their jobs. How can you sell cars, when few people have the disposable income available to buy? With the size of the overall pie shrinking, how can you get more of the pie for yourself by stealing from your competitors?

Merchants In The Bad Economy

This bad economy is a great time for small business owners. You can get away with atrocities of a magnitude and frequency not seen since the second world war, and blame it on the economy. Government is doing exactly this, and pulling the wool over the people, so don't forget to do your part.

The Economy And Downsizing

User Rating:  / 2

Dumb EmployeeDownsizing is nature's way of thining out the smart people from the herd, so that only the scared, dim-witted remain to do the work. Employers want workers who can do the work, but who are not smart enough to know they could get a better deal elsewhere. Research has shown that smart workers can be a disruptive influence in the workplace, asking for raises and asking too many questions about health and safety issues.

The impact has worked its way up the food chain to gangs and various organized crime. It won't be long before the organized criminal groups lobby the government for a share of the bailout.
