Riding the roller coaster
Modern workers have got used to earning a regular wage that, over the years, creeps steadily upwards until the employer can no longer afford it and they get fired. In the current recession, things have been encouragingly different. People have realized that, instead of taking the random chop of redundancy as ten percent of the workforce is cut , if everyone takes a ten percent cut in wages, they can all stay, in some cases, this strategy has saved the company. However, that still has not achieved the same level as the self-employed mentality.
