I remember the recession of the 80s well. In fact my husband was without a job. It took about 4 years for us to see any progress. This time is was far far worse. We were heading into a depression, the banks were about to collapse, People were losing their homes. We had biggest economic meltdown in 80 years,before the President even stepped a foot in the White House. I'm not surprised I lived through the recession and I will get through this one.
