Job interview. How to answer why I am leaving current job.

I am in the process of looking for a new job. My current one is with a small business that is having Financial problems. There are only 4 of use the owner his VP (girlfriend) and another girl. We have been paid in cash the last 6 pays and we are getting all the phone calls for the bills. How do I respond when a interviewer asks me why I want to leave my current job? I don't want to bash my company which doesn't look good to the interviewer. The job isn't all that great anyway.
