Evidently the former CFO of Ad Agency Grey NY Jeff Boose (linkedin) cannot find any job, including flipping hamburgers. It’s reached the point where his family question every dollar they spend, sometimes eating pancakes for dinner and borrowing from their parents to pay the bills. The USA today is reporting
This states many things, first and foremost however is the fact that this recession is the worst any of us have seen since the great depression… and in some industries such as advertising and physical locations such as Detroit it’s exceeding the levels of the great depression.
God help those that work at an Advertising Agency in Detroit because there is very little hope of them finding another job in the region.
But Jeff Boose isn’t in Detroit he’s in New York. Advertising Agencies have lost somewhere between 14-35% of their workforce in the past 600 days.
This is the economic environment we live in now. Where a man that earned $400,000 a year now is eating pancakes for dinner to save money.
What a mess. Someone give this man a job.
