okay, thanks for the input. Here's one for ya! I just found out the company is cutting all employees pay by 5%, and the owners 10%. They claim it's because a GC wants a 10% deduction across the board on a bid for a new job site. Is this my problem or theirs.

Cut employee's pay by 5%, sounds like BS to me unless you are overpaid. As a owner I will attempt to squeeze my suppliers first. And instead of a 5% pay cut why not just attempt to be 5% more efficient at the job site. Sounds nice when the owner is saying he is taking a 10% cut in pay. Maybe with the 5&10% cuts he will be able to maintain his profit margin since that was not brought up. Not your problem.
