  • The Los Angeles Times has a story about how small businesses, and their employees, are coping with the crisis.
  • The Salt Lake Tribune is discussing workers and how they are expressing fears over the economy and the election at work.
  • The Omaha World-Herald has an article that outlines how worried workers are about the stock market’s impact on their 401K retirement savings.

  1. Patrick,

    This is a great blog, glad you are providing it, and sorry I only just found it.

    As a small business owner, I agree that the economic crisis is affecting how employees see their jobs. Traditionally, many of us small business owners haven’t had an in-house HR adepartment either, so many of us don’t have retirement or succession plans in place for our employees — and as a result, many employees don’t even have any sort of retirement plan in place, which makes losing one’s job even more scary.

    The impact of the economy on small business and their employees is something that needs to be addressed in every workplace. Along with, perhaps, some lessons in how the employees can get something going, planning-wise, ASAP.
