The fact that my family run a business in woodburning stoves has meant recession is treating us well (gas prices going up and up), infact were predicted to double profits this winter from last years. My friends however are losing jobs, couldnt afford holidays etc.

My dad got offered the redundancy he's been wanting for ages so it kinda worked out positively for him. Thing is he was also being offered a position that he really wanted in the company at that time so had a tough time deciding whether or not he wanted to drop out or not. Ended up taking the money and kicking.My work hours were first cut, 2 people got fired (not because of the recession but for incompetence) and the company also refused to hire new people so then my hours got increased. My staff discount has been reduced as well :/

Not really.I mean, searching for a job seems 10 times harder than before. However, in saying that I may have a decent job lined up very soon. But if I don't get that I'm stuck Also minimal interest on savings.
