    Is anyone in the medical field? I'm hearing a lot about Chloroquine and Azithromycin working well against this virus but I don't know enough about it to know if it's true. Elon Musk has been tweeting about it.

    This means we’d get $7,000. I’d of course love that but it should not happen. My wife and I haven’t lost our jobs. Yet anyway. I have some concern about my wife’s.

    Unemployment is going to be a bear for a long while on this. As consumers lose income, it will affect those in fields not even related to the service industry which is hit the hardest right now.

    As an example, if you're a loan processor for new home loans, any market crash is going to drop the demand for houses as clients will start to scatter. You could expect cuts to be made there.

    If you work for Ancestry as a software engineer, you might see a decline in people signing up as they'll be saving their money the best they can. Less revenue for the company means they'll start to look for more cuts than you would normally get anyway with working in the tech industry.

    This isn't going to be fixed in a few months. We should consider ourselves lucky if this only ends up being a recession.

    Maybe it's there but I didn't see anything for renters. Renting has climbed dramatically in the last 10 years and so many people, especially lower income, rent and don't carry a mortgage. And we rent from a private individual, not a company of any kind, so I wonder if it were needed how that would work.

    What do you do on Base? I work contracts on base and I know that contractors have been told to telework or offer paid time off if possible. However, it's no longer the government who is not allowing telework or leave, it's the contractors companies. I have personally put out over 100 letter outlining the process for contractors. I am the only person in my office today. I have sent all others home the last two weeks. My entire office has been offered telework. Some are being offered administrative leave (Leave with pay). Sorry your company hasn't seen fit to offer the leave yet.

    My wife got called in today to help clean-up the damage from the earthquake and to get details about the store shutting down for a little bit. She's worried about if she's gonna get paid during the shut down. They have verbally said that they are going to pay everyone, even hourly full and part-time employees and my wife is salary as the store's ops manager. I figure she's gonna get paid during the shut down but we'll find out.
