My company has felt the same pressures that many in the industry have felt and in an attempt to ease some of their costs they have decided to move to a four day work week. Instead of laying off some people they have chosen to take this route. I am fortunate because this won't have much of an effect on me, don't get me wrong, I will have to budget better and spend less money on the things that I don't absolutely need but I have a husband that is a good provider and can take care of our family if things get worse here. There are a few single mothers that work with me and I know that things will be tough for them. I feel so fortunate to have Larry and his job, even though the newspaper industry isn't very stable we feel he is in a department that is the future of the paper, online news. I am excited to be able to spend more time with my kids and I will finally have a day that I can clean without having both boys in the house distracting me. I will be able to go to lunch with friends and I may get a good workout in atleast once a week now. Anyway, I am grateful that even though Larry and I are both in industries that are volatile we both still have jobs that are taking care of our needs.
