I don't know where each of us is on the current economic crisis, but this Mollie is as happy as a clam.
Three significant people in my life have either been hired by employers with really decent wages, or are at least being seriously considered for positions with really decent wages.
This doesn't compensate for my friends who are currently out of work, but IMHO, this is a huge relief. It seems as though employment is picking up, and in the mainstream business community for livable wages!
Not only that, but my friends who managed to keep their business afloat during these times are finding that their business is starting to revive.
It sure makes this cranky old lady a happy camper!
