    Question Who Is Still Working

    And who is bored at home ?

    Thankfully lumberyards are on the list of essential businesses so I am still working.

    At least at this point the governor of Florida has said he is not shutting the state down.

    Collins aerospace is still essential. Not sure for how long though, if Boeing shuts down then there goes 60% of our work so we won't be far behind. I'm hoping for a 2 week break, so long as it's paid!

    For the last 5 years I have been working from home 1 or two days a week. So for me to transition to full time here was simple. Now making sure the kiddo does their remote learning while balancing my work has been interesting.
    And the wife is working from home as well.

    stores have to have their shopping carts so we are still going, at least until our suppliers shut down.

    I went back to school full time this semester, just in time for the shutdown and move to online....

    Pulled out my paintball gear yesterday, going to go through it all and get it in working order to hopefully play this summer if everything is open again.

    Just programming Robots every day. Custom Automation means we have ALL kinds of customers so some of our guys will still be working if they "shelter in place" South Carolina. We have such large projects coming up that our group could easily handle working remotely for a while too.

    Still working, though i am no longer handling money directly. The toll system is being set to remote, so people will get a bill in the mail. But the boats still need to get & out, so my bridge is still manned.

    Hillsborough county (Tampa area) commissioners voted in a "shelter in place" that started this past Friday at 10PM.

    It goes for a week, at which time they will take another vote to extend it or not.

    I dont see too many less cars on the highways...

    Trump extended the social distancing to April 30th.

    Looks like we have at least 5 more weeks of paranoia.....

    Sorry, bud. Hope it's really temporary. At least you can get that premium unemployment.

    I'm out of work too. I do mostly private tutoring for high school kids, and there's no market for that right now. My wife is a teacher, so she's at home too, but she's still getting paid.

    Student job is cancelled with the universities closed. The nice part, they have decided to pay out 60% of what we were earning. The not nice part, I didn't get my timesheet/hiring process set up until the 4th week of the semester, so they've averaged in 4 weeks of nothing to what they're paying me, not what I would have been making for the rest of the semester. Friday internship job has also been shut down. My company is essential (energy sector) so the controllers are in, but nearly all the other employees are working remotely. Intern level work is obviously not particularly critical, and I never had remote login abilities anyway.
