    Default what is the meaning of this sentence: when downsizing became the "in" thing to do, mi

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    Could you please explain me the sentence below, which i read in "RICH DAD POOR DAD" by Robert T. Kiyosaki, page no: 103:

    "when downsizing became the "in" thing to do, millions of workers found out their largest so-called asset, their home, was eating them alive".

    Thank you

    Regards
    irfan pmm

    It means that many companies were "downsizing" (reducing their work force) and the employees that were let go had trouble paying their rents/mortgages.
