Half of firms have laid off staff since October

Here we go some news I found today:

"Half of Irish companies have had to lay-off workers since October, according to a survey conducted by KBC Bank. The bank says just 10% of firms have hired workers in the past three months, while two-thirds say trading activity is down." News from Independent

Every family I know, has a family member who was laid off or has working hours cut to the minimum.... Many people are leaving Ireland to go Australia. I have never seen so many advertisements about Australian Visas/Work. What is next?

Irish crisis - reccession

I'm sure wherever you may be living in the world, you might have been hit in your pocket by this cruel global financial crisis... Every day, when the news is on, all you see is that companies are going into liquadations, making redundant people who worked years for them, cutting wages and etc.
