Long story short--our county (where I work) is doing more cuts. They already cut my hours back to 36 per week (I work four, 9 hour days). There is more talk about additional cuts coming after the first of the year. I have a college degree (in equine science) but we live in a very small community and I'm scared that I might be next. My boss has told me no way (since all of my salary is state-funded) but now the state budget is getting cut even more and we're losing some of that funding... My husband said that if I lost my job, I'll have to sell my car (not a huge deal but I do like it and it's close to being paid off), my horses (NO WAY) and all of my chickens! I always get spam about working from home but that's all it looks like--spam...does anyone make money working from home? My hatching eggs do okay but I just make enough right now for the chickens/geese/ducks to pay for themselves, but my "real" job pays for the groceries, my car, student loans, cell phone, etc.
