Ouch! pay cut

Due to the economic downturn my entire company is going through an 8% salary reduction. That plus higher taxes in Ca is going to make for a tough second half of 2009. On the bright side I did just get a 3.5% raise in Jan so that helps ease the pain, and we still have jobs. I feel worse for our lower paid people who barely get by now.
