Just Spoken To My Coop Insurance Man

Recommended Posts

During the conversation about how bad things were he indicated that he was getting about 5 enquiries a week from people who had lost their jobs. This is the Bath area. We have not had that many big local firms go down lately so I recon small businesses must be shedding jobs real fast.

Sad but this is just getting started - Green Shoots my a***.

The point is these are probably local businesses shedding employees. These will just not hit te news at all, until they show up in the overall stats. This is just one insurance man in a very small city. Just how many people are loosing their jobs...

By the way Mrs FTBagain was made redundent just before Xmas. Although there are a number of promising opportunities. She is a nurse and according to press reports that is the one 'business' that is still recruiting. So fingers crossed.

Why would people who have lost their jobs be contacting a Co-Op insurance man? Unmployment insurance to kick in?

Or cancel / slim down other insurance premiums - life etc.

Cash in their ISA, stop paying into their pension funds etc...

There has just been an item on the news talking to some small shopkeepers.

Many of them are hurting, and think that they will be closed by year end if things doesn't pick up
