How does all this, or does this affect your incomes?

|

One way to look at it is that is if you can't go to work or school because they are closed, you should have more time to go ride. I'll take my Universal Basic Income in the form of a KTM 350 Please!

Im a little worried if im honest. Working in mass public transit. I could see it getting shut down for weeks on end, which could certainly effect my job.

I’m still going to get paid but my company is kicking us out. Last day we can be in the office is tomorrow. Working from home is not ideal.

All of tv and movie production is shutting down. Unemployment time.

All of my employees who are contracted to a couple big clients have been told to hang out at home for the next month. It's going to hurt.

This is going to smash the economy if it lasts too long.

Heating, Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration work marches on!

Water and wastewater here....all good!

I can see this having a huge affect on lots of people and hope the best that everyone can pull through

Some industries like yours might spike with new business during these times. People will call you to get things fixed at home now that they've been forced to go on a 2+ week Covid 19 staycation.

I own a utility construction company that operates mainly in the Bay Area. All the cities we work in are talking about suspending permits because they don’t want to expose their inspectors to any possible risk. Right now it’s business as usual but a shutdown seems likely if things continue to progress. I’m not sure what we will do if and when that happens. I have 38 employees and I can’t afford to pay them if we stop working. I would imagine that there are many companies like mine that are in the same boat.

There isn’t a playbook for this situation.

My company is fully remote, but I’m the owner and I’m seeing clients drop off already because they work in industries that are impacted. Luckily I’m fairly diversified but I’ve already lost money this month because of it in gross.

I am already thinking about how I can curb non-essential expenses, hours, etc. it’s a shit show.

But on a positive I’m picking up a new FC450 next week unless the dealership shuts down!

Keep your head up everyone!

I’m kind of seeing things slow down. Been waiting on a mini mart store that was supposed to replace a walk in cooler box. The plan was to do it this month.
Postponed, sales are way down. That hurts me.

Most of us in the service industry are sweating because of the exposure to people. Cable TV guys, me, plumbers, fast food workers, gas station attendants and clerks, delivery men. I’ve been asking, most are kind of resigned to just saying you gotta do what you gotta do.

Heck, I was in 5 different houses yesterday, changing air filters, checking Freon. I’m looking at everyone like they’re leper’s. It sucks.

It could be tough if things drag out for a while. I own/operate a small CNC machine shop.
One of my best customers promotes monster truck shows, sells parts and builds trucks.
I'm sure his budget (thus mine) will not be the same this year.

Molecular virology research.

We won’t be closing any time soon, but we’re bracing for supply/reagent shortages.

Our research institute was shut down for nonessential research, so I’m now testing in one of our department’s CLIA labs.

I work in health care in a ER. It’s been really challenging times. Job is safe, but this is making our jobs infinitely harder!

I don’t mean this to be rude, although it’s just the truth. One week ago most of this board did nothing but mock this entire thing. Look at how differently people are posting now. It’s unsettling to say the least. We all know it’s going to get worse before it gets better. Not great as a business owner.

I’m just a mailman so it’s like peak season starting up again with people ordering more of their essentials from Amazon instead of just going to the grocery store. More parcels, more work, more overtime. Better than the alternative, I suppose.

Been delivering tons of TP and paper towels! grin

I am a high tech guy that works remote.
Only change to date is cancelled travel - six trips during March and April.
Otherwise job marches on.
401k down $120k...

I'm a cop. I would assume my job is safe wink

I just got an email from the School District saying my kids will be coming home tomorrow with a homework packet to be done daily and the School will be closed starting Monday. Unless I can figure out how to skirt the California Child Labor Laws and put two 8yr olds to work in my Suspension shop, it looks like I'm closed indefinitely...

I work in product development research and several of our clients (major auto and motorcycle OEMs) have postponed or cancelled projects in the last couple weeks. We are likely to see revenue cut in half for the year. Super bummed because we had a record start to the year.

I took a position that is a work from home back in October. Glad I did it won't effect me.

“All of” is actually not true. But there are some shows that are going to cut the season short and drop a couple episodes. Plenty of work still going on with no hiccups.
Yesterday was my last day working, until July. It’s not going to affect me as far as work, but I think we are ALL going to be affected in some way or another !

All of the studios are about to shut things down across the board.

Not yet, for me as a maintenance electrician in a Glass factory, here in OZ.

Remodeling work for me and I’m so busy my heads spinning. The only issue I’ll have is if the media frightens the supply houses enough to limit my ability to obtain materials. As far as customers, they are waiting in lines for us. As long as I’m still able to get materials I’ll still be working like crazy, and spending money at restaurants, stores etc to help pass along the buck to some who may be seeing a slowdown.

My prediction is in 4 weeks or so this will be heading in the right direction and life will get back to normal as quickly as it went South

Could go either way for me. probably (hopefully) will be good because more people will want to vacation at home in the safety of their own back yard. But if their income gets affected the pool guy will be the first luxury to go. "Ooh the pools dirty, how scary"

In italy it sucks.
We can’t move if not for emergency reasons!
Also I’m not riding because the ambulances are busy with coronavirus emergency.
MX tracks are all closed, because there are no ambulances and in the case you crash hard, you may die on the track.
Fuck this shit cant wait to come back on the bike.
Luckily i’m a student.. we are at home since 20 feb. and if everything goes right we will be back the 10 of april.
This year the have the high school diploma exam, i don’t know how we will pass it, after skipping 1month and a half.
In the meanwhile i’m destroying my self with some road cycling (to dont lose my cardio). 600 kilometers in just 3 weeks!
Lol

Little worried right now. Not because of the corona virus but because of the affects of it. If it’s shutting everything down I think it’s only going to get worse from there. Work has been slow since the new year started and some days we don’t have enough work for all 8 hours. Talks of layoffs and early retirement deals being worked on so that’s what scares me more then this sickness
