What makes this so much worse is we are in the middle of tax season and in Canada we are days before the contribution deadline for RRSPs. Plus the fact the Canadian markets all shut down at about 2 yesterday. That and the slide on it's own would be horrible but add in the other factors and I want to cry here...I work in the collections industry. A (short) recession actually helps us... though I don't want it to happen.
I'm guessing the health care industry will be looking for lots of extra hands in the near future too
