I had to give my Mom her 2 weeks notice today and it really bums me out. She has been working for me since she lost her last job about 2 years ago. I didn't really need her but my parents are retired in their late 70s and the extra money really helped them out. But this year my sales are at about 60% of last year and I have taken a pay cut on top of that, so I'm making less than half what I made last year. At this point I'm worried about paying my bills so I can no longer afford to pay her. Hopefully I can help her find a different part time job.
