Workers' Job Gloom

Updated: 09:07, Saturday September 09, 2006
Workers believe job prospects have worsened over the past year and that inflation will rise, according to a new report.
A survey of 2,000 people shows a fall in perception of job security for the first time in three months.
Two out of five said they believed employment prospects had worsened and there was an
increasingly pessimistic outlook
for inflation and interest rates.
The poll by Lloyds TSB also showed that three out of four consumers believed interest rates would rise over the next year.

One of the key triggers for any crash is sentiment. It's turning uglier by the week.

Was this a poll of the Labour Party?

Just the right time to buy a house?

It's turning uglier by the week. Ah yes, you're are talking about Tony's wife! :lol::lol::lol:

I can't remember a time when UK workers were not scared about losing their jobs. Everytime I think I'm OK, there's just something that pops up and says beware.

From another point of view, a few years ago I had a surf trip planned to South Africa, I cancelled it because I was really worried about my job at the time. I've rearranged my trip now for next year, I've just accepted that there will always be something around the corner, but is it worth completely putting your life on hold for it?

Keep debt and expenses as low as you can and try to save/insure yourself against the unexpected.
