Recently, I have had three friends layed-off from their jobs and with the airlines and all the other companies laying off 25 to 50 percent of their work force, I have got to tell you that I am so lucky to have a spouse that emphasizes saving. We have friends that are up to their armpits in credit card and other debt and I fear for them, because if they lose their job, they will be bankrupt. I hope that all of you like myself are saving your money, so if you should be affected by a layoff, you will be able to support yourself and or your family. Good luck!
