the restaurants here laid off like 75 percent of the workers they got one person working the carry out cashier and maybe one chef. the only thing still hiring is truckers and people unloading/loading containers.
Around here...

Warehouse.
Delivery.
Construction.
Millworkers.
Every trade. Electrician, Welder, Plumber, HVAC

I was booking a gas insert yesterday and they are 8 weeks out because - and I quote - "We can't get anyone to show up for an interview."

I have a buddy that runs a roof truss production facility. He's looking to hire 50 guys.

But let's keep paying people to sit on their fucking ass. If some areas of the country are legit shutdown, then do targeted stimulus. This all-encompassing bullshit by the feds is causing a lot of problems in areas of the country that aren't shut down.

I do love the fuzzy math aiming for the outrage reaction.

Everything is bulk amounts except the $600 for (1) citizen. But even that wasn't enough. They had to make it look worse by making "citizens" plural.

If 50% of Americans make less than $75k a year (that's a guess but likely pretty close) - and for the sake of easy math let's put the American population at an even 330,000,000...

165,000,000 x $600 = $99,000,000,000

99 billion of a reported $900 billion package.
So...11% in direct stimulus to Americans.

But there's also the extra $300/wk supplemental unemployment benefits- which I strongly oppose.
