I got over $2,000 end of year bonus. It was definitely not a reflection of a economic recession.

The mother I work for was laid off along with 1500 others from her company. I lost my job in the beginning of November, I have since moved back home and started working where I worked before I came to the East Coast. Needless to say, I didn't get a bonus.
