My partners father has just informed us that his employer has called himself and 20 other employees into a meeting tomorrow morning with the express
purpose of letting go 15 employees...
To be completely honest, they had a contract with the Qld government, and they just pulled out (so obviously they know there's trouble)
As you can imagine, he is a standard aussie male, mortgage, wife, car loans etc.....and is now fearing the loss of everything.
I am just curious about the rest of the Aussies on ATS, about there current situations in there workplace, and the repercussions of this economic
I currently manage a fast food restaurant, and people are still continuing to spend more and more on our rubbish. So I have come to the conclusion
that people in Australia are not fazed by the recession, but my partners father, and to be honest, many of my close friends are very close to losing
there jobs through drastic cutbacks.....
So to all my Aussies ATS'ers, Whats your experiences? How is this recession affecting you?
