Has this economy continued to hurt your wallet, or are you doing just fine?

I was thinking about this as I came to work today and was greeted with not a lot of work for a monday. We do work for a lot of different people/businesses and we have seen slow downs in every industry. We usually stay busy year round, but there are times where it's feast or famine that's for sure.

Personally speaking my money is held pretty firmly, we are currently paying off as much debt as possible before we get a house. This economy definitely has impacted me though. I used to reach my bonus almost every week, but now I rarely reach my bonus which sucks, but being employed is enough to keep me content. I know some of you guys in here are in pretty solid industries, but those who are not, does the economy continue to hurt you financially?

I found out yesterday a roof I put on 2 years ago is experiencing problems. Homeowner had another contractor out and he recommended replacing the entire thing... naturally. I'm getting ready to lose some money myself.

That has more to do with you leaving your bedroom, bubba fett dolls, and tube socks rather than the economy.

My career of nineteen years is kind of taking a shit due to government involvement in health care. I started a business a couple years ago and it was a perfect niche to get into. I sell automotive specialty tools and parts and the business is growing rapidly. So I'm only doing well because I chose to have two full time jobs for a couple years. You have to want it or it won't happen.

It has been a bit rough on me. New baby, higher prices on everything, and my paycheck staying relatively around the same over the past couple of years has finally caught up. I am still paying the bills, but I have burned my savings and it's even forced me to switch departments in order to chase after money so I can get back to where I was 3 or 4 years ago.

I did basically a wide variance of Comm and Business. Actually very close to a business management degree as well.
There's opportunities everywhere for those degrees. Just have to start small I guess.

Luckily for me I have two things working in my favor:

1. I work in the entire Wash DC metro/ NoVA / SoMD area and there is NO recession here.

2. My company pays my entire health care, gas, and cell phone bills so that is a HUGE plus.

Not sure how a family of 4 or more can afford their gas and food with the sharp increase over the last 4 years. It's crazy

We handle customer service calls for large health insurance companies. It is becoming harder for those for the health insurance companies to outsource with all the regulations and uncertainties.

What kind of problems? Usually with roof's you can pinpoint what's ****ed up and repair areas without replacing the whole roof. Well, you know this, but damn.

Sound's like the other contractor is slow and is looking to make himself some work.

Probably a combination of a few dynamics. But I know this one probably isn't the best roof my company has our name tied to. I decided to assemble a crew of out of work people and help the local economy when we had a hail storm blow through town. It's tough supervise properly when you're the only efficient roofer on a roof. But I think it's water-tight and should be fine until the next hail storm. Hope I won't have to replace the whole thing but if that's what I have to do, I'll just have to eat ramen for a while.

How long do you give warranties for? Because the shingle's have their own warranty, I'm telling you shit you already know but that sucks man.
