Assignment: Are you better off?
iREPORTERS SIGNED UP
Created August 20, 2008 by
Seven years have passed since the last major economic downturn, and many factors have changed radically since then: your house, your job situation, your debt and your prospects for the future. John McCain and Barack Obama want voters to ask themselves if they're better off, and this question is becoming a major issue in the presidential election.
Now we want you to ask yourself the same thing. Are you better off than you were seven years ago? Send us your photos and videos, and let us know if you're doing better - or worse - since the recession of 2001. You could be profiled in an upcoming story.
