Re: Today Sucked - Had to lay off most of our employees. Construction
Sucks man.... talked to a lot of other fellow employees of previous company I left that just got laid off to.

Was just launching a business that services restaurants to myself.

I guess we’re all fucked together.

But the politicians still get paid.

Sad times.... but I guess you can’t have the good without the bad.

Strange, I just talked to one of my life long best friends. She owns a restaurant and just had to shut down. She had a huge business and more employees than we had. She tried to do take out but it wasn't 1/4 of her expenses.

This is why I ostensibly like being the little guy with no power, always in the shadows and totally irrelevant to all in a conscious capacity.

Your employees are aware of you though, and what if they blame you, and not the Virus? What do they tell their families? Because of the volatility and lack of understanding concerning what is going on, things could go one way, or they could go the other. You're in a tight spot now.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78181053


It sucks, we were doing fine until the virus hit. The cancellations and holds on work were incredible. We survived the housing bubble - this was way worse.
 Quoting: Southern OR



I was laid off today in the offshore oilfield and the reason was because of all the cancellations and holds also on offshore construction.

I am waiting for the call that military construction has been postponed/suspended for the year on Alaskan military installations.
However the word we seem to be hearing is certain specific projects will happen regardless. The key words are "Force Protection".
That 75% of my yearly!

That view is subjective in hindsight. If one of the laid off employees with a grudge comes back and kills you, you may actually not live to see another day.

I don't see that happening. Our family members were the first to lose their jobs, WITHOUT unemployment.
 Quoting: Southern OR



I believe contract workers were added to the unemployment package this time around so they might be covered.
