Life is tough all over

Boy, you know the economy isn't doing well when experienced professionals like this are having trouble finding work:

Less than two years ago, Stern earned close to $150,000 annually, sometimes turned down work and drove a Mercedes-Benz CLK 350. Now she's aggressively reaching out for jobs and making closer to $50,000 a year.

As for that Mercedes? She's replacing it with a used Chevy Trailblazer -- from her parents.

"The opportunities in this industry really are disappearing," Stern said. "It's extremely stressful."
Granted, it sucks (heh) to take a 66% pay cut, but I have a hard time feeling sorry for someone who's still making fifty large with her, um, "skill set."
