Still working here. I do floor measures for carpet/laminate for Home Depot. They shut down measures and gave me a 25% raise in salary and all the overtime at 2X regular pay I want to work in the store. Busier than a one legged man in an (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) kicking contest.

We had a handful of them do it at the shipyard as well only to find benefits denied.


Yeah I am laid off and am not receiving benefits because my employer chose to spread my severance out so I couldn't draw. But even if I could, my unemployment benefits would only equal about 1/2 my normal paycheck, haven't heard anything about that extra $600/week.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Good to see so many guys still working. We are the people that make the world go round or flyover country as they say in DC. If you listen to the Fake news nobody has a job. I told my boys today when they were grumbling about working on pivots. They are dang lucky to be out getting their hands dirty! Lots of folks are scratching the walls right now and they better think about that.

Been tough for me. One of the magazines I write for all the time just folded. The same company has two other magazines I write for, both dropped to quarterly. Books sales are pretty slow. Fishing tournament sponsorships and my hunting sponsors are really holding things tight right now. I live on several small income streams, all of which are slowing down. Gonna be a tough summer, and no unemployment for the self-employed. I've survived tough times before I will survive this one.
