It seems to me, instead of digging deep and realizing they will have to work harder the next 5 years, most are doing the opposite, giving up.

I realize I work harder than most, because I actually enjoy working. But the work level of the people in this country has really tanked the last four years.

I just dont see people standing up and saying "Screw DC, Im going to stay one step ahead of htem, they cant stop me!"

So, is the Recession making the people weaker?

It seems to me I am working harder and longer these days, with little to show for it at the end of the week. Seems like, instead of hiring new people, companies are holding back to see what will happen. Which means the rest of us are doing more than the work of one person. That's how it feels to me anyway. If I am any indication of the norm, America is broke and exhausted..

Ya, I do think we are overworked, which I guess goes against my main point. But I just see so much whining and bitching about the smallest tasks, it gets really aggravating.

That's assuming that you have work. Most economists are suggesting that the crisis is systemic, which is to say it's not likely to simply be over in 5 years or so, or at any time at all for that matter.

The weakening of the US started years ago, they are tired and worn out, clinging to the last bit of stability they have.

This trend is why I am not as afraid of the recession as I was when it first hit. The worse it gets, it seems the better understanding I have of what I need to do.
