Having lived my whole life in California, I didn't realize how different everything is from state to state. I have to say that my family is California is in a much better position to recover from this pandemic than Oregon, regardless of the fact that they are more exposed (Bay Area).
One of my sons has been put on a zero hour schedule, regardless of the fact that his job is medical (autistic occupational therapist), thankfully he is eligible for unemployment. Apparently, that is not true in all states.
Oregon doesn't even have state disability. Thankfully, my daughter in Oregon works for Costco and in states without state disability, Costco pays for private disability insurance. And, by personal experience, I can tell you that making the insurance people cry pushes things along (not that I enjoyed that, but they were torturing my daughter).
Thankfully, we are well positioned to weather this storm, and I'm mostly looking at how I can help my community in the upcoming months. I live in a small town, mostly retirees, mostly poor. So I'm planting more and am suspecting that I will preserve less and donate more, thankfully the Episcopal Church in town is very good at outreach.
Hope others are doing well.
