St. Laurent, Canada (PressExposure) June 27, 2009 -- Times are tough. The global economic tsunami has left a rising number of Canadians without a job or with the fear that their job may be the next to go. Canada's unemployment rate stood at 7.7 percent at the end of February. Many economists believe that the unemployment rate will actually top 10 percent and that 600,000 jobs will have disappeared before the recession ends. If you've lost your job or if you're just having trouble paying your bills, you know how frustrating it is when you have to pay a high interest rate or penalty on a late payment. It's just that much harder to stay on top of things.
That's why there's a new trend among smart Canadians. They get cash for their gold jewelry. Ladies, you know you have gold jewelry sleeping at the bottom of your jewelry box that you never wear. It could be a necklace from an old boyfriend, an earring where you lost the other one, or just a piece that is out of style or that you're tired of wearing. Why not sell this unwanted gold jewelry for cash? The price of gold is higher than it's been in decades. You can sell your gold jewelry for cash that you can use to pay your bills and avoid missed payments.Or just be smart and pay off a high-interest loan.
