How about now, over a year later with a totally different economic outlook gripping our country? How much do you make now? Do you make more or less than you did a year ago? Do you still have a job? And this time, I'm also asking what your net worth is, and how it's changed over the last year. Please give us a little context as to your age, location, and work industry, and feel free to be as anonymous as you want. Pass this link on to your friends and encourage them to chime in too!
