My sisters employment got cut down to 10 hours a week, so under the qualifying amount for benefits. I would've thought accounting might've been a little insulated from this but I guess not.
My cousin is in accounting and got straight up let go. She said, "if there aren't enough beans to count, you don't need as many bean counters."

Source of the post In any event both of our jobs are as secure as can be during something like this and for that I am thankful.
That's good. I'm still a little nervous because of all the talk of possible changes, and apparently unemployment affects our financial stability (medicaid, I think?). Pre-covid, our census was over 100% for a very, very long time, so we had been doing quite well.
Yes. Medicaid pays usually somewhere around 20% less on average. So with the Medicaid population going up, revenue is going down.

This is one of the questions I plan on submitting for the next town hall - asking what revenue is like right now compared to a few months ago. I'm grateful that they do update us every two weeks, and appear to be pretty transparent, but it's still a little scary. Though, healthcare tends to be a little more stable than other industries.

My company just let 30 people go, including my manager. So yeah, today's off to a great start.

I am fortunate my wife and I both work for industries that are essential, but not necessarily are essential ourselves (so we can WFH).
Same - both of us work for health systems. By all accounts, we're going full time WFH. It's mentioned constantly, even by our CIO. My wife's company? Their CIO has made comments at their town halls about people "asking him when we can return because we miss it". Lying. Through. His. Teeth. The irony is that this guy owns a consulting company that is 100% remote worker, but hates it when these guys work from home. My wife has to fill out an Excel spreadsheet of the stuff she works on when working from home, daily.
Yep, dude is a big liar. He just personally hates remote working then and said the "because we miss it" line to soften the blow of having to come back to the office.."You asked for it!"

I've never met someone who wants (even if forced) to return the office after working remote. I'm sure there are exceptions but they are rare.

How nice with everything going on people are still self-righteous tool bags on LinkedIn. Thanks for posting the story of you supposedly saving some service worker's job because you stepped in while their manager was yelling at the worker. Yeah, because that r/thathappened you a**. Then all the fawning comments. LinkedIn has pretty much turned into Facebook.

Unlike my sister, my brother is doing well at the moment. He has been hired on as a sub-contractor at a NASA facility in West Virginia. Full remote, but not a permanent assignment (what gov contracting is?). But he'll make great connections, get better experience, and may come out of it with a security clearance.

He'll be supporting this facility: https://www.nasa.gov/centers/ivv/about/index.html

July is a 3 paycheck month for me, and I just received my PPL cash out check. So I guess that's one good thing about the current times.

I'm being offered a new role elsewhere in the company which isn't exactly what I want but could be a good lateral stepping stone. Kinda scary to take it and have to onboard during this time, but also if I stay where I am its kind of wasted time at this point. I'm about 75/25 to do it as long as there's a pay bump.

Could be a good time to do it and have a year of growth vs a year of diminishing returns, especially considering there probably won't be much movement on the job front for the next year or so
