This reduces storage costs to the government, utilizes existing inventory and reduces the cost from the contractor)
    I read the post in its entirety, but, until you gave this explanation, I did not know the specifics of what you did. Thanks for clarifying.

    Anything dealing with tourism and gaming has taken a hit. Casinos in rural outlying areas in Clark County are starting to close down. There is already talk of one on the strip possibly closing soon as well. States where tourism and legalized gaming are the first things to take a hit in a recession.

    Does anyone here work for the Big 3 auto companies? Are you out looking for work in anticipation of a layoff or are you sticking with your companies?

    Sort ah, all of the above. I was laid off a year ago. I do electrical automation and robotic intregration. Very specialized. Having trouble with most employers who do not have financial resoucres to train people, and are fearful I'd run back to my $75k/yr job ( Not including premium time, we would average 65 to 70 hr/wk) Sooooo... It's back to school at 61. Even a EE with a Masters in Biz Admin is not a guarantee any more.

    If you can shoot well and own a bulletproof vest, my brother and I could use another security guard at our company.
