30,000,000 unemployment claims in 6 weeks !

Is it even possible to get this many people back to work under present conditions, even if the entire country is opened up?

This looks like a disaster staring us in the face.

There is no way the government will pay for this many unemployment claims. They will advise companies to call their people back, and if the employees refuse to return, they will be fired and turned down for unemployment insurance.

Whatever they do, it will not be in the interest of the unemployed worker. You can bet on that.

Workers should counter that they should all be tested before returning to work and they and their families should have guaranteed healthcare coverage, including for the corona virus.

1. That's just the claims for people who had regular payroll jobs

There are lots of people who donít pay UE insurance for whatever reason. Itís a good point about health insurance; most peopleís are through their company and just when they might need it the most could lose it. You could do COBRA but thatís real expensive. So people put off doctor and dentist visits. It ripples thru all of society.
