With rising prices of health care, gasoline, increased taxes (one way or another), etc (inflation), effectively everyone's paycheck is smaller.

It seems my paycheck may be dropping to 0 as work is eliminating 10% of the workforce....

The reality for my employment is this....we have not had a raise of any type for 6 years while our healthcare costs have risen on average 20%/year. So, if we assume for a second that cost of living goes up 3% each year (the usual and customary raise), we re actually down 18% on top of the increased healthcare costs. At the same time the cost of everything else has gone up and there really is no sign of gaining back the losses.

All of that said, I am happy to be employed and at least have healthcare coverage.

Like most of you, I'm just glad to be working. Everything and I mean everything is getting more expensive as our pay stays relatively flat. And lets not forget that the dollar just isn't worth what it was several years ago.

On top of all of this, I have two starting college in roughly 18 months. I worked my way through college, working a part time job. For my kids to be able to do that, they would need to earn a little over $30,000 a year!

Something has to change, we can't keep going like this...
