I made it through round one. How bad is it out there? I'm working for a pretty stable design firm with five offices in the Carolina's, but our Charlotte and Wilmington, NC offices took it pretty hard. I'm in Wilmington, and glad to have a project to work on. How's it going for the rest of y'all? It's getting tight here. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

I work for a caterpillar dealership in the precision machine/weld shop and we have more work than we can handle and we're hiring. But copper mining is booming and they need trucks.

Glad to hear it's not everyone taking a pummeling. We've had nearly 16-18 years of pretty good times financially - guess it was time for an adjustment. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

I can think of twp fairly large A/C shops only letting there employees work half days. Leaving one tech. to work what ever he can scrounge up for time. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shiner.gif" alt="" />
That's pretty bad!

I guess i am pretty lucky doing criminal prosecution. I have an endless supply of drunks, tweakers, child molesters, and thieves.
