    Layoffs Are Just Starting, and the Forecasts Are Bleak
    Shutdowns in the U.S. retail and hospitality businesses may be an early sign of the job losses that the coronavirus outbreak will inflict on the economy.


    Marriott International, the hotel operator, said Tuesday that it would begin furloughing tens of thousands of employees worldwide. Restaurants, coffee shops, gyms and other small businesses have begun laying off workers outright. On Monday, a flood of inquiries from newly jobless New Yorkers crashed the website for the state’s unemployment insurance system.

    If it closes down completely then its what it is. Life could go back to normal soon, or not...
    Could understand if full payment would not be payed for a while in small companies.

    I could be out of a pay check next month. Nothing i can do about that.
    Not worried about that. Always had a resourceful streak to me.

    70% of the ZA population lives on the bread line that includes the unemployed.
    It would be one massive violent riot if they get layed off.
    Whatever

    States must start making economic plans to help businesses. But first of all, we must stem the virus. If you manage to stem the virus in a small state, then you can also help it financially. If the virus spreads across the united states, you will not be able to support financial support.

    Coronavirus layoffs surge across America, overwhelming unemployment offices
    Job-loss projections range up to 4.6 million.

    Employers are slashing jobs at a furious pace across the nation due to mass shutdowns over the coronavirus, slamming state unemployment offices with a crush of filers facing sudden crises.


    Long before official government data is expected to reveal the depths of the economic shock inflicted by the coronavirus, reports from state officials and businesses around the country indicate the gathering of a massive wave of unemployment on a scale unseen since the Great Recession.


    In New Jersey, 15,000 people applied for unemployment benefits on Monday, a twelvefold increase over normal levels. In Connecticut, nearly 8,000 applications arrived over the weekend, an eightfold increase over the norm. Rhode Island officials reported Tuesday a five-day rise in claims due to the coronavirus from 10 on March 11 to 6,282 on March 16.


    More than 45,000 Ohio workers have applied for unemployment over the past week, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services told Sen. Rob Portman, a nearly sevenfold increase over the previous week.


    The dramatic rise in claims could spur further action by Congress beyond the legislation now under discussion. “This demonstrates the urgency for Congress to act, and act quickly,” Portman said Tuesday in a written statement.


    According to an NPR/Marist poll conducted Thursday and Friday, 18 percent of households already reported someone being laid off or having hours reduced because of the coronavirus outbreak, with women hit harder (21 percent) than men (16 percent), and people who earn less than $50,000 hit harder (25 percent) than those earning $50,000 or more (14 percent).


    “A coronavirus recession is inevitable,” said Josh Bivens, director of research at the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute, in a blog post. He estimated that at least 3 million jobs will be lost by summer. Meanwhile, the U.S. Travel Association was projecting 4.6 million jobs lost this year in the travel industry alone, pushing the unemployment rate up to 6.3 percent.


    The layoffs swept businesses large and small. On Tuesday Marriott said it expects to lay off tens of thousands of workers worldwide. MGM Resorts International on Monday closed 150 restaurants and bars, with more closings to come; Caesars Entertainment Corp. said it also has begun layoffs. In D.C., Compass Coffee, a local Starbucks competitor, laid off most of its 189 employees, and the Dubliner, a popular Irish bar on Capitol Hill, laid off all of them, leaving the place empty on St. Patrick's Day.

    Mass layoffs will hit Florida this Monday as most food gyms and bar are order closed.
    Try to keep busy at work as most business will slow down or close.
    I'm trying not to take any field calls as I can usually resolve the issue through a remote connection.

    Still working on a process to do installs via remote but I don't think we will be installing any machines for what looks like serveral months.

    We are now on a 32 hour week. Bonus program and vacation time are suspended temporarily. All benefits are still intact. Calls have dropped off dramatically. About half of our technical staff company wide has chosen to go off the clock. At present I am staying just busy enough. The financial loss sucks, but it would suck worse to no longer have a job when this is over.

    Those relying on the government to take care of you, that is called socialism. Exactly what the Democrats and other portions of the government want. They will take advantage of this Chinese created situation to do what the need to in order to enact Democratic Socialism. It will get better due to them and more will rely on them. This is how it will be. We must rely on ourselves not the government for what we need. They already control your health care, now they will control what you do, where you go, and what you eat. Especially those that rely on getting their food from a store instead of yourself or sharing with neighbors.

    Remember what happened to the American Indian when they were told the US government would take care of them. Now we have a government that are more worried about taking care of Illegal's and refugee's rather than our own Citizen's. They also lined their own pockets by giving the Kennedy Center $75 million in relief than they turn around and fire/furlough their musicians. That is not the only organization that has down this, we just have not heard about them.

    In short the US. Government does not care about you.
