I was recently furloughed for an undisclosed amount of time, after nearly 9 years of working in the same company.
Now that the $600/Mo Covid package is no longer there, I'm going to have to totally unplug Boinc.
I have to provide for my family, you know...
And with no end in sight, and my company may or may not open doors anymore...

Today was the last day.

Sad and the fact you have much company is no solace. I could get political but that might get me a lifetime ban.

I think everyone would agree, that at least something, you know?
Just until there are jobs.
But no one ever said I could stop paying taxes, because I've been working for so long without ever needing govt assistance :/

Another friend said, they get more in holiday pay, than what most furloughed and laid off Americans get as unemployment for those months..
