Our dismal economy has left many individuals without jobs due to layoffs, downsizing, corporate bankruptcies and myriad other unhappy events. Even the companies that are hiring have the advantage of choosing from an extremely wide range of qualified candidates resulting in lower wages and salaries. Economic projections for 2011, suggest that 1 in 10 workers in the U.S. will be without a job. With these limited options, many individuals are leaving the uncertainty of the job market and going out on their own and becoming entrepreneurs.
Many economists, including a recent Nobel Prize winner for economics, have said, “It could take as long as 15 years for families to recover to their pre-recession wealth.” Whatever your situation, it’s highly probable that you don’t have that kind of time on your side. As the job losses continue to pile up each month, economists speculate that job losses for this year (2011) will continue across many regions and business segments. Even those industries that are recovering will be severely restrained when it comes to hiring new employees thanks to higher taxes and proposed legislation.
