    Anyone experiencing a layoff or pay reduction as a result of the Coronavirus hysteria? I may be facing one or the other and should know more later this week. Still processing what to think about it. They are using the term temporary furlough. I get that companies are facing hard times and this may be a way to address it rather than to just cut the workforce altogether.

    No. The forecast I was privilege to today estimated as many as 2.5M-5M newly unemployed over the next 30 days would not be unreasonable to hear in a worst-case scenario.

    (Just passing along). I saw were Amazon is hiring 150K new (?temporary?) workers - don’t know the details; just scanned the headline. I’d guess local hospitals might have the ‘help wanted’ signs out too - but probably just lower level cleanup/sanitizing-type help would be my guess. We’ve likely got four to six rough months ahead of us until the economic jitters are completely gone (just me, guessing).

    Nope. Hell, I might ask for a raise.
    I do feel for anyone impacted negatively by this manufactured 'demic'. We'll keep the light on for ya.

    We layed off all but me and the boss and I'm supposed to be taking a 40% cut... :/ Hopefully we can make it through and re-hire when we start getting jobs again.

    Before I was told we are classified as essential, I was already pondering a stocking position at HEB, they are hiring lots of folks right now. It would have been a huge paycut but it would have been temporary and kept some money coming. Several weeks off wouldn’t kill us money wise but nice to always be making some. I’d do whatever I had to make sure I didn’t just sit around, not gonna let my kids see that.

    I hear 20% reduction is what I'd being talked about where I am. Better than a layoff and hoping very short term.

    My income is already down 20% because my best customers can’t work.
