How is this affecting you? Over the last six months, we here at MOABJEEPER Magazine have been privy to certain inside information regarding the state of our industry. While we are not going to scream the sky is falling... it is clear that the wheeling industry as a whole is thinning.|
A great print publication, Jrations, is no more. While the quality of the magazine was not in question, the survivability of an upstart magazine in a down-turned economy surely was.
As for manufacturing companies affected, it would be irresponsible to share names, but many companies you wouldn't have ever expected to have problems are already "downsizing", halting product development, and laying-off of some employees. Some of them we didn't even see coming and shocked us. Best way to explain it: the industry is bleeding, and without getting it under control we may lose some of our favorite manufacturers.
