Business as usual so far. Burning PRC to boil the water that spins the turbines that rotate the generators and provide the power needed for those at home to microwave burritos, watch Netflix and surf the net. Business as usual and Warren Buffett likes it that way.

I got a pay increase ! Well, a slight increase in my pension, and an increase in the winter home heating allowance. As a full time worker, I also get 80% of my weekly wage. As an added bonus I don't get to go anywhere to spend my money.

We are getting a 10% bonus for anytime worked during the stay at home order. They are also paying us to stay home if you or anyone in your house has so much as a cold. They have also waived occurrences if you simply wish to stay home to avoid any human contact, however that will not be paid unless you use vacation time.

My company is paying everyone in full their wages if they have to quarantine, or if they get sick with the virus. All 25k+ employees.

I'm very fortunate.

Is that legal?

It's just as legal as making citizens carry papers to cross state lines in Amerika, Comrade.

The law is just a social construct of the government. It has nothing to do with right/wrong/ethics.


I'm sorry...and you planning to actually ANSWER THE QUESTION or just post non sequiturs?

Yes, it's legal.

Sad to see people lose their jobs. The writing was on the wall that times were going to get tough and here we are. Fortunately we planned for it and using this as an opportunity to build wealth. Think outside the box.

For governments at all levels, revenues are declining rapidly as tax takes from all sources dry up.
From income and payroll taxes to sales taxes to fuel taxes all are in free-fall.
State and local budgets are going to be strained for at least the rest of this calendar year.
Tough times ahead for governments and those who work for them.
The layoffs have already begun for some such workers.

I’m in aircraft maintenance at a heavy maintenance/overhaul station for the 3rd-largest aircraft OEM.

With the plunge in demand for air travel, airlines have cut flights by as much as 75% at last count. As a result, they can no longer pay to have their aircraft maintained, so they parked them.

Everyone except a skeleton crew to do necessary maintenance on aircraft that are in storage, were furloughed last week, for at least a month, but word is that it could be longer.

In the mean time, I got a job delivering for Amazon Prime (Yep, one of those dark blue Mercedes Prime vans you see in your neighborhood). Keeps me off the couch.

Things are grim in the airline/commercial aviation business. We need, badly, for air travel to be able to resume. Unfortunately, it’s not looking like that’s going to happen for maybe months - at least, not like it was, before.

Best of luck to everyone during this time.

We will bounce back!!

Many reasons outside of today's crisis, could have been responsible for that.

I've been interviewing for several jobs over the past two months, at what is considered an 'essential' business. One of the interview processes moved to virtual and even progressed through the final stage. Hoping to be hired next week, once they figure out the virtual hiring process. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. My wife works in health care and has moved all of her patients to video visits. She's waiting to see if she gets redeployed to a field hospital.
