    The unemployment is different than the stimulus. The stimulus is a 1 time check/direct deposit.

    The $1105 figure was based on my state unemployment benefits max, in Alabama the max is only $275+$600=$875/wk, in Massachusetts $823+600=$1423/wk, the additional $600 are only for the first 4 months, still a nice chunk of change, many people will way make more $ not working collecting the government hand out.

    My office has done a pretty good job so far keeping us busy, definitely not easy right now. I’m going to keep on working as long as there’s work. As far as the OP...I wouldn’t feel real good about doing residential PMs right now either.

    I voluntary bailed out last week, told my company I won’t be back for 1-2 months minimum. The fact is we just don’t have the necessary protection to do our jobs safely and as sneaky as customers are, you can ask them all day if they’re sick or if they travelled, they’ll lie to get their equipment fixed. Not worth the risk and it’s not fair to unsuspecting customers that you might transfer the virus to. I’ve got 6 months worth of emergency savings and I consider this an emergency, so I’m home until things die down (no pun intended).

    Sounds like you have the right idea for sure. I think I could probably last about one month before things started getting really tight. May have to look into unemployment if things look like itS going to be much longer...

    I would talk to your daughters' doctor and see if you would qualify for paid leave under #4 below.

    The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA or Act) requires certain employers to provide their
    employees with paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19.
    These provisions will apply from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.


    2. has been advised by a health care provider to
    self-quarantine related to COVID-19;
    3. is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and is seeking
    a medical diagnosis;
    4. is caring for an individual subject to an order described
    in (1) or self-quarantine as described in (2);


    Good luck.

    What certain employers?

    An employer with not enough reserve funds to pay out those kind of funds?

    How does that work?

    It would be easy to search BB with far fewer characters than you used. You talk about training people often so I will do the same here. I will give you a few minutes to educate yourself than if you are unable to do so I will happily do what I can for you.

    We joined the civilized world BB at least temporarily with paid leave. Does that bother you?

    Certain employers with under 500 employees basically.

    I work As a Lead Diagnostic Commercial Tech , I am very hands on with the rebuilding of parts and heavy compressor swaps, Nitrogen always used when welding! There was a slowdown, I had a wonderful 10 days off due to the confusion. I renovated my master bath and i had Plenty of separate HVAC clients kept me busy. My employer doesn't care as long as i'm not competing with them. I'm considered one of the best in the field and they definitely don't want to lose me. I had to be put on a Company Critical Services Tech list before going out again, as the law dictated.

    Commercially i am not threatened by the virus. Once i arrive i only need to know what unit i am going to because the work orders say one thing and the Building manager says another..95% of the time i am on the roof, 3% above a ceiling and 2% in a utilities area, far away from anyone..

    If it is in the contract before you hire on.

    Government can't come along and mandate you yourself or your company go bankrupt paying out what you don't have. Or to keep what you will need to start over.

    I've got a 100 hours of PTO, that's 2.5 weeks, then I'm on my own. Works for me.

    If you don't know what those certain employers are, just say so.

    I already told you who they are and provided a link.

    If you are happy that is good for you but you don't get to make the rules for the rest of us. That is what the federal govt is for BB.
