On behalf of Bigge & Rodriguez, PA posted in Personal Bankruptcy on Wednesday April 29, 2015.

As the month of April comes to a close, there are reports that consumer confidence has taken a plunge. Job growth rates remain sluggish, gasoline prices are climbing up a bit, and economists are reporting consumers’ perceptions have fallen below expectations.

The media can report on surveys and indexes used to monitor the reality of growth or decline rates, but the “perceptions” of economic conditions and outlook are more near and dear to the hearts of consumers and how they view the economy both nationally and locally.

Monthly job growth has reportedly slowed to its lowest since December 2013. Many South Floridians are still affected and without jobs, but many more are also considered Under-Employed. Some have become re-employed, but at lower salaries than they previously made, and some working more than one job to make up the salary difference.

For people in this classification of Under-Employed, it is often difficult to make ends meet, continue mortgage payments and other financial obligations. If also faced with mounting medical bills, student loan payments and other unanticipated expenses, it may become necessary to seek counsel for debt consolidation or debt forgiveness.
