Service, tourism, sports and travel industry destroyed and wont be back for years.
Movie Industry. Gone.
Film industry. Gone.
Outdoor recreation. Gone.
Hotels and casinos. Gone.
Fairs and Carnivals. Gone.
Meetings, Events, Conference industry. Gone.
Concert Industry. Gone.
Theater Industry. Gone.
Amusement and Theme Parks. Gone.
Cruise Industry. Gone.
University towns devastated.
Except for fast-food chain restaurants, restaurants devastated.
Except for Amazon, Walmart, Target and the other big-box stores, retail devastated.
Except for mega corporation grocery store chains, groceries devastated.
Jobs are where exactly?
Being called back to work at 25% hours and wages doesnt help either.
For you, maybe not essential, but for the 10s of millions who were previously gainfully employed, these jobs were essential as well.
Again, since the above industries are not coming back for years, where are the jobs?
How bout all us retired folks with extra expenses?
