An outbreak of schadenfreude in my circle. Three copies of this article found the way to my mailboxes.

I love this.
...a steady number of applicants, in their late 20s, who had never held paid jobs: They were interns at a modeling agency, for example, or worked at a college radio station. In some cases, applicants have stormed out of the market after hearing the job requirements. “They say, ‘You want me to work eight hours?’ ” (emphasis added)
After all why should only sugar babies and mistresses suffer when mommy and daddy are strapped.

Yeah, funny stuff. And somehow always related to a certain class of folks for the NYT to be interested in them. But the numbers were quite telling too. Everyone's being hit hard currently.

Still, way down in Dixie we now employ some 10 people. Of those perhaps only 1-2 regularly works a 'regular' Full 8+ hr day. The rest roll in when they like, leave as soon as they dare, and most behave like they're semi-retired. We'd be happy if they could manage a string of 5-6 hr days too! And no, most of them are none too smart or trainable as of yet... Hoping you're doing better with your crew over there! Cheers, 'VJ'
