Immediate Scenario: The job-site has been shut down, and you are out of work, possibly for more than a month.
Temporary Solution: The government is sending out a one-time, $1200 relief check, and is extending unemployment benefits. This will help a little, in the short term. While most of us will be able to go back to work after the pandemic has passed, many will not have a job to return to.
Preparing for the Future: The stark reality is that many companies and employees have not prepared well enough to survive beyond the current economic downturn. Many employees have maintained the status quo of their skill set, it had always been good-enough in the past.
