Work has slowed down a lot but this month is the worst I have only been able to Bill 50 hours. Everytime I ask for more work it’s not given to me or it’s one assignment. Should I be worried I’m getting fired ?

Thoughts on joining a boutique consulting firm during this economy? Is it typically viewed as safer or riskier than bigger firms? Sorry if this is a dumb question.
