Job losses are up, and investments are down. Many Americans are worried about their financial security amid predictions of a dire economic slowdown.
How have you been affected by the economy? We'd like to hear from people from all walks of life -- business owners, job seekers, families, retirees, people who are struggling with debt and others -- who have been directly affected. What changes have you had to make in your life as a result?
We'll choose some of the personal stories we receive to share with readers in The Herald and on our Web site, heraldonline.com. Send specific information about how you've been affected by the economy to Jennifer Becknell at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 329-4077.
We need your name, your city of residence and a phone number where we can reach you. All submissions become the property of The Herald and may be published in any format.
