Time to give up? Yes. Shutting down.
I just had a long chat with my employees of eight years and past along the new. We are closing shop. While we've had our moments, the last several years have been a steady downward spiral. Between the massive tax burden we're under and trying to compete with low-cost (low-quality) sweat shops over seas (just west of China btw...) there used to be only one remaining incentive for success - to send my kids to college in comfort.
Now - with Obamacare looming and a line that goes 'round the block of 'citizens' with their hands out pleading with the Gov't, "Please give me even more because you all owe me" and a seemingly endless list of "Programs" designed to sponsor the super-lazy - I see no reason to continue trying to succeed.
Thank you Codeproject for giving my crew countless sources of inspiration. I wish you all the very best of luck and success wherever you are able to find it.
