turns out that the economic problems have significantly simplified the task of employers to find employees who work at a high level and have another definite plus - modest appetites.After all, no choice but to agree to lower wages, they have no choice.

In the near future to

improve the situation is not expected.The army of unemployed updated with new recruits every day.In just a week, as reported today, Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Zhukov at a meeting on the situation in the labor market, the number of officially registered unemployed rose by 4% and amounted to 1.454 million people.

And this is not the end.More than ten thousand companies announced plans in January-February next year to release from their positions about 270 thousand workers., Come a new wave of cuts, and on increase of salaries should simply forget the spring, at the end of the last financial year:

On the basis of such a sad statistics of the newspaper "Trud" gives a fairly gloomy forecast for the next year.Yes, and earnings growth in the country has almost stopped.

And in early 2009, many companies because of the crisis plan to further decline in staff salaries.In particular, according to research personnel holding "Encore" is ready to go to 18% of the 370 surveyed enterprises.

And, of course, many employers do not become cut staff, decided on a favorite "anti-crisis" step - the delay of salaries.Only in November, we recall, wage arrears grew by 93% and amounted to 7.77 billion rubles., Which is more than twice the average level.

In this situation worth waiting for any action on the part of not only employers but also employees.These actions follow - sharply intensified trade unions.However, if before they are increasingly demanding a salary increase, and now on its reduction agreement.If only the staff did not cut.

Generally, workers in times of crisis, it seems, are willing to tolerate absolutely everything.According to the study recruitment agency Kelly Services, in October-November this year, only 22% of ordinary employees of various companies did not suit the level of their salaries.And the fact that they are not officially employed, are dissatisfied with only 3% of workers.

Given that very soon, in the first half of 2009, according to many experts, there will come peak of the crisis, angry workers and clerks, indeed, is not the time.Apparently, the second wave of layoffs is inevitable, and it will begin in February and March.It may be the third and - summer.In general, the Russians will have a difficult period, and those who did not get a festive bonus of leadership, it is not necessary to grieve.The main New Year's gift today - a workplace for the next year.
