High unemployment is a major problem these days, and things don't look like they will be getting better anytime soon. According to a new study, about 90 million workers won't be needed by 2020. That means 2.6 percent of the world's workforce will be without jobs. What would happen to your neighbor, brother, or spouse if they ended up jobless? How would you help? Here's the question: Would you be willing to sacrifice a portion of your salary if it meant being able to hire a friend? The idea sounds great: You could help someone in need simply by giving up a little bit of your paycheck. The money cut from your salary would go into his or her bank account, which would help with bills, food, and expenses. But if it came down to it, would you really do it? You are probably wondering, "Why should I be the one to have to cut my salary? Why can't a top executive get a thinner paycheck?" The problem is, not many people are willing to sacrifice a little bit of their salary, not even highly-paid executives. If you don't want to give up a little, why should they? Now, let's change the perspective: what if you were the one unemployed and needed help? So, what would you do? Let us know what you think! Please take this poll, then give your reasoning below in the comments section. [poll id="24"] Salary cut hiring image from Bigstock
