Nik Krasno | 13489 comments Just rewatched the movie with George Clooney and I kinda can't help asking: what are those fired people (especially 45+) supposed to do?
Jumping off the bridge solves nothing or should there be much better solutions?

That would be best. Sometimes one needs to be fired first to become a bill second-:)

Nik Krasno | 13489 comments I guess re-employment, biz, anything income generating may turn acute in corona's aftermath. Will there remain enough jobs for everyone?

G.R. Paskoff (grpaskoff) | 248 comments It has got to be terrifying for many people. I am fortunate to be able to keep working from home and earning a paycheck. But when I first graduated college, I got a job and the economy hit a low point. I was last-in/first-out and got laid off, along with many other people in the region I was in geographically. I ended up searching fruitlessly for a job in a market flooded with more experienced, senior people willing to take a job at a pay cut just to make ends meet. So I ended up going back to school to earn my master's. By the time I graduated the second time, the economy had straightened itself out. But I feel that is not going to be a viable approach for many of the affected people and we will feel the repercussions of the pandemic for a long time.
