    At the moment, no. Hopefully not.
    But indirectly yes, coz food & transport costs all go up, eats into the pay.

    If not now...it's sooner and if not sooner...for sure just a few days after "sooner".

    It will not be just due to the crisis as per say that will effect your rice bowl but opportunistic employers that will use this as the time to put the squeeze on you..... be it at your existing job or when you are looking for one. If you are a one trick pony you are going to be in a world of hurt. Matters not if you are a local or foreign worker.

    As I mentioned previously, as crazy as it sound it is at this time you notice alot of stuff go up in price. The necessity stuff that is. Like transportation, food items, water, electricity...etc. As you try to save more by using less, the increases hedges the profit level for all those who control those stuff or services. So while you think you are saving, they are still able to keep the same level of profit numbers if not more during this down turn. Why? Unlike luxury goods.... you can't do without basic necessities. Shoulder to the wheel and move on..... life still goes on

    It's just a matter of time; you don't need a fortune teller to you that it'll either affect you directly or/and indirectly ...

    Perhaps the the question should be "How is it going to affect your job?"
