For me yes, there will be many cuts to come yet from my employer. My 2009 property taxes were raised 36% and though I have some overtime hours available each week, Vermont only pays straight time. I average $10 per hour take home pay for my 16 hours OT per pay period (biweekly) after taxes. Today I heard on NPR (I don't have TV - $$$$$) that a barrel of crude is eighty some bucks a barrel now. Hey, winter is coming and a lot of people are broke and won't be able to paay their fuel bills. I donate extra on my electric bill for those in need. Gasoline is $2.63 / gallon here. I see no improvement yet on the local economy. Are any of you in other states seeing improvement? How are you preparing for winter and another tough year?
