Taxicab Recession

When we hit the streets of Washington, DC last year for our video segment about work and stress, the responses ranged from serious to off the wall. We heard some interesting takes on work-life balance, learned about such creative stress management techniques as making soup and "relaxercising" and heard a great rendition of the David Allan Coe tune "Take this Job and Shove It." 

This year, we decided to change things up a bit, so we hired a cab and talked to the passengers. While we still got some interesting responses, the tone this year was very different and it was clear what was on everybody's mind.
