Default Checking In- Employment

One of the things that has been touched on that I have thought a lot about is what is the economic impact so far?

Has anyone lost job? Has anyone had hours reduced? Holding steady but won't for long? SBA loans needed?

Figured we need to try to take care of and support our own if possible.

I'm luckily in a position right now that working from home, at least for the next few months if needed, is both possible and fruitful.

If the economy tanks totally and it lasts for a long time, my prospects become more bleak than they do in the immediate.

So far, so good here.

Commissions are way down, but the salary takes care of the bills, so we're good for now. Time will tell, but we are fortunate and it could be a lot worse.

I'm fortunate enough to work for a manufacturer that the DoD depends on. We aren't closing down, unless all of our operators end up sick at the same time...

I've been working from home for the past two weeks - I work for a government entity now, so I believe we are save.

However, a good friend of mine was laid off last Friday - it makes my heart hurt to think of him and his family being impacted by all of this.

Retired, but living comfortable on SS for now. No need to get into retirement savings.

Extended family, all have been so far deemed "essential" so they are hanging in there. And all are currently healthy.

I work from home regardless. I'm a consultant in the medical device field currently with a large device manufacturer based out of the Midwest. We have accelerated, not slowed down.

I'm grateful to be able to work from home, and to be staying very busy with work. The past few weeks have actually been my busiest this year so far.

So far so good for me. I already work remotely. We've noticed a temporary slowdown, but anticipate it to crazy busy.

I'm in home health services (coding and OASIS). Our take for home health is it will dip initially with vulnerable seniors refusing care for fear of contamination, and then accellerate significantly. Elective surgeries such as hip and knee replacements are all on hold. They're not cancelled, just postponed. If you need a hip, you need a hip.

Home is the best place for these folks to recover to make room for others in need. So it's going to get crazy.

CMS did some actual good things in the CARE act to remove bottlenecks for the industry, so it's going to go nuts.
