Gayle Walsh - Worst downturn in years
Founder, Personnel Travel Consultants
New Egypt, N.J.

I run a staffing agency that specializes in the travel industry, providing both temporary and permanent staffing. My business is down about 60% from last year. I have been in business for 19 years. This economic downturn is worse than what happened to the travel industry after 9/11.
