That's true, and I sympathize with your situation.That's not entirely true. My company just laid off 10% of its staff and gave everyone a 5% pay decrease. Oil employs a lot of people and it's not just bankers who feel the pinch when oil prices are low, but also the contractors who move oil and the small companies who produce it.
I was speaking on a broader scale. When gas was $4 a gallon, it was probably great for oil companies, but not so great for consumers and businesses. This is the flip side.
Still, a 10% cut in staff and a 5% pay cut isn't all that bad when compared to most others right now. My company cut 60% of it's staff, and I took a 40% pay cut, and I'm still better off than about half the folks I know.
