We all have varying opinions about the impact of this, the numbers, etc. We will all never agree with each other. But we can all keep it civil.

Thanks!

Problem solved.

If you didn't have any money saved to live on while looking for another job, again, your own damn fault.
You're being a twat....stop

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

You don't save a little money every month, you might be up shit creek when the toilet flushes.

Also this quote from someone working in unemployment:




Good luck, America
Banks and private employers are going to have to step up in a BIG way.

We haven't made any additional layoffs over the last 2 weeks after our first little kick. We made it through payroll yesterday needing to burn off about $30K in LOC space, leaving roughly $220K. We also covered our health insurance premiums for the next month.

Our major loan/rent payments have been reduced to interest only.

Keep limping like this and we have 7-8 payroll periods? That's 14-16 weeks. It's not nothing. Now we still fully expect additional contraction in revenue but even if it's chopped in half (and for the love of god, government, stay out of our way on this one - they're the last folks that can really shut us down), that gives us 8-10 if we have a little bit of a coasting period.

If we can continue to keep our people paid, we'll have done some serious yeoman's work to get them through this while waiting for any stimulus to arrive.

And a lot of businesses are in the same boat as us. Private industry is straining to make this work as well as we can. And ultimately it'll come down to us to keep things churning because I don't imagine the federal response will be quick enough to do it on its own.

And the way the banks can extend that runway substantially is by quickly and smoothly navigating the PPP program so we can be even more confident in our ability to retain staff and not exit this cash-poor and unable to re-start if things turn around.

What were these people going to do if they lost their job because of some other reason?

You live your life without a net you might break something when you fall.
I take it you're pretty furious that the government bailed out all these big companies that didn't follow your code here?

So your belief is that people are not going to leave their homes to pay respects to the dead.

And that THEY'RE the ones being unreasonable?

Okay.

I'm sorry - I get putting people on blast for going to the park because it's nice outside and they want to see their friends.

But if someone I care about dies and a funeral is held, I'll consider that as important as going to the grocery store and no greater risk. Especially when its outside.

At some point you have to allow people their humanity. For many that is a fundamental element of the grieving process and to call them 'stupid' for it is robotic.

Just a reminder that people laid off in Canada are getting CAD$2000 (~USD$1400). Per month.

The UK is covering 80% of laid-off worker wages for at least 3 months.

And all we can do is $1200 per person. Once. In 20 weeks from now.
Something like that needs to be done here those countries have a lower unemployment rate
