Discussion:
how bad is the economy, really?

I wonder if anyone is seeing any door closings on brand name dealers, or just "right sizing" for the market?
Has Pons or Briggs decided to completely get out of or sell off any Geographic market area they had covered before?

New York, New York its a heluva town..you know that The Bronx is up..and I'm Brooklyn down
Not too bad here...

Still a shortage of labour, locally.

Idustries, here, that ship to the US, were starting to worry, but our dollar has dropped so much, that worry has started going away.

My employer was all doom and gloom, then all of a sudden, we switched to extra prodution and are working all stats, including xmas!

In Central Florida we are taking a beating. Every dealer in town is on a skeleton crew. Service departments that had 18 to 30 techs two years ago are now functioning with 6 to 9 techs and they are still not making 40 hours per week. We are seeing independents close their doors and some of the smaller dealers really struggling. The Clark dealer has already filed bankruptcy.

The experts are saying another 18 months for Florida to recover from this. So right now the outlook is bleak.
within an hour of my typing that, I was informed the company I work for has cut 3% of it's employees this morning. thank goodnes I was not one.
