    Oh no no never
    will he be believe that
    his greed is a blinding ray
    No devil, or redeemer, can cheat him
    He'll take his gold to where he's lying cold
    a legend and an out of work bum look a lot alike, daddy.

      Bad assessment. Students don’t tend to have cash - that whole student loan crisis and all. Yet they’re expected to carry the financial burden for all incoming new students. Where else do private, non-Ivey schools get their funding?

                I still want to know how my company is getting relief from the feds. They blasted it out in an email explaining that the forced vacation will be used to get subsidies for companies who are still paying their employees during leave. It’s... either a ****ing lie or they said the quiet part loud.

                  Seems strange. There are some payroll tax credits to cover the cost of paid leave due to an employee sick with Covid, caring for someone sick, or caring for a kid whose school or daycare closed due to Covid, but I didn’t think it applied to just a general leave.
                  That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                    I thought the same thing. But they were very clear. This isn’t sick time or caring for another person. That’s a separate account.

                    Which is why I was saying they either said the quiet part loud or they’re lying and it really is for lay-off liability reductions. Either way, this reeks

                      Unemployment numbers for last week get released at 8:30ET.

                      To recap, Initial Jobless Claims:
                      March 1-7 = 211,000 initial claims added to unemployment
                      March 8-14 = 280,000
                      March 15-21 = 3.3 Mil
                      March 22-28 = 6.6 Mil
                      March 29-April 4 = 6.6 Mil
                      April 5-11 = 5.3 Mil
                      Total initial claims since March 1 = 22.3 Million
                      April 12-19 = ??

                      [4.3 Rumored] Would put us at 26.6 initial claims unemployed. A quick Google search shows 128.0 Mil were employed. That would make 20.7% unemployment.
                      *edit* That would also wipe out all hiring gains since the 2008 economic crisis. Another Obama mark erased by Trump.

                        4.4 million is the official initial jobless number.

                        15.97 million continuing claims.

                          So wait, are they saying 10 million people have gotten jobs? Why isn’t that continuing number higher?

                            Because it's a rolling four week average of claims. This takes the initial weekly volatility out of the equation. Also why there was such a discrepancy between total unemployed when this started and continuing claims.

                            So, if we magically all returned back to work, this number would still show high for a few weeks.

                              I believe the denominator is the #of people actively seeking work + the people employed. So more like 26.6M/150M or so. Still a high # but maybe another couple of weeks before we hit Great Depression levels.
