Who's still working through the quarantine? And what jobs are you doing?

While I'm fortunate we are able to work through the pandemic, I can see where this is going for some smaller companies. We are receiving contracts from other companies to supply them, while some other businesses are shut down due to the quarantine.. Some of these contracts are long term, 3 to 5 years. These contracts are to replace existing contracts that are being cancelled due to work stoppage. What's unsettling is i know and work with many of the smaller companies, that the contracts are currently with, supplying them with parts for their machines. I can see that when this ends I'm afraid these people will not have a place to go back to work at.

Our company provides support for utility/power distribution and circuit protection, commercial and military aerospace, electronics and communications including 5G infrastructure, and medical needs.

My company is operating at about 40%. I got laid off last Thursday. We make little plastic car parts. My boss had to come out of his office to do my Quality job on the floor. He's not enjoying it. And all salaried people had to take a 10% pay cut. Good thing they spent $8000 on toilet paper to give us before they laid us off.

If, i am lucky, next year after this idiocy is over, i will be able to claim i spent zero hours at home during this nonsense. There are wolves and there are sheep.

My day job is shut down, classic boat restoration. We run a perrenial nursery at our home, retail sales shut down until further notice and wholesale deliveries on hold, but lots of seeding and potting up this time of year regardless.

I've been laid off for going on 3 weeks now. I'm a truck driver that hauls our equipment between road jobs and our quarries, pa shutdown all road work, and our quarries are running at bare minimum mainly for just stone sales, so no equipment for me to move.

America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.
