Service workers are so screwed

These people make up a large portion of our economy. The inability to work for longer than a couple weeks will be devastating. You will see food insecurity, the inability to pay utilities, rent, ect. They are hustlers. They kmow the govt isn't going to help them short-term. I know many and some are already planning on going to neighbouring states to work if it comes down to it and some will take thier kids with them. Although necessary in some areas, the idea that someone can sit at home, unpaid for a few weeks, nevermind a month is a fantasy. The economic damage coming will dwarf 2007.

1. I'm an unemployed musician.

I long for the days when people would throw food at me. Rough times for sure.

6. I have 3 kids, 1 is furloughed until restaurants reopen and get busy again and the

other 2 are in the entertainment industry and have had their hours slashed; they will probably get laid off if anything else jolts them.

Tough times.
