Redefining Life in the Bad Economy Mike McCarthy

Listen Now

Our series "Redefining Life in the Bad Economy," features business analyst Mike McCarthy of Arvada. He first felt the economy's slide when he was laid off in September of 2008. It took him more than a year to find another job. It's in his field and it's paying just enough to keep his family afloat. It's also temporary. And his six month contract is about to run out. That's the bad news... but as you'll hear, all this has brought McCarthy and his family closer together. Ryan Warner spoke to Mike McCarthy in the CPR studio.

McCarthy is pictured here with his family: Wife Lara, daughter Isabel and son Liam.
