it's part of the CARES act, and it means we get to keep our jobs. The early retirement is a fairly generous offer as is the temporary leave offer.
American Airlines asking for 12 billion. Asking the government to fund a restructuring that includes early retirement packages. What a money grab. I hope the government tells them to go pound sand.
Wtf??The ***** is killing the most people in the blue sections of the country. Maybe this is what the media meant by the "BLUE WAVE"?
The same government that is lead by a President who's been saying that they need to help the tax-evading cruise lines and the stock-back-buying airlines more or less since this started and that would have passed a bill bailing out big money while everyone else would have fallen off the radar had it not been for Democrats?I hope the government tells them to go pound sand.
Those are the clowns trying to own the libs by having “********* parties” and things like that because they believe it’s all a liberal hoax, that it’s just a flu bug. Yeah, karma, bitch, and all that.Ok I am really really sick of comments on SM that say that this ***** will hopefully kill off more people in "blue states."
Like this popped up on my FB feed:
The Trump administration has decided against reopening Obamacare enrollment to uninsured Americans during the ******** *********, defying calls from health insurers and Democrats to create a special sign-up window amid the health crisis.
Chemicals used to construct military missiles. Materials needed to build drones. Body armor for agents patrolling the southwest border. Equipment for natural disaster response.
A Korean War-era law called the Defense Production Act has been used to place hundreds of thousands of orders by President Trump and his administration to ensure the procurement of vital equipment, according to reports submitted to Congress and interviews with former government officials.
Yet as governors and members of Congress plead with the president to use the law to force the production of ventilators and other medical equipment to combat the ******** *********, he has for weeks treated it like a “break the glass” last resort, to be invoked only when all else fails.
Despite having committed to transferring 2,000 ventilators in military stocks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Health and Human Services to fight the ******** outbreak, the Pentagon has not shipped any of them because the agencies have not asked for them or provided a shipping location, the Pentagon's top logistics official said Tuesday.

I do have to say that I am ROYALLY ticked off about the Kennedy Center. I have no idea how that one gets rationalized. Hate to be krass, but surely the Kennedy's could scrape together enough money for security of the building, and payroll.
Both the Kennedy Center and Howard University are federally chartered entities who get regular government funding. So are the Holocaust Museum, Smithsonian, Corporation for Public Broadcasting, Dumbarton Oaks and other DC landmarks. It goes back to when there was no city government here and DC was owned and operated by Congress.Why are you royally pissed off about this entity getting money but not cruise ships, oil companies, hotels, etc etc?
Also depends upon what kind of law they practice .... because some matters are considered essential. For example, by law, arraignments in criminal cases need to take place within fixed time limits ... and it is at arraignment (if not sooner) that the accused gets a lawyer. So, arraignments are essential ... and that means criminal defense attorneys are essential....
Evidently the stay at home order is optional in Florida.
And is seems to be optional at a law firm in CA I just talked to.
The UK government response is not bad, paying 80% of salary up to 2500 GBP per month for workers if companies do not lay off workers, but for a lot of people that's still going to present a cash crunch. I'm not sure how many people can take a 20%+ pay hit and still meet their bills.Nearly half of UK companies will furlough between 75% and 100% of their workforce over the next week because of ********, according to a survey. The British Chambers of Commerce revealed 32% of businesses will temporarily lay off staff. The survey showed a majority of firms had just three months of cash or less in reserve as companies across the country suffer a sharp fall in sales and lockdown measures weigh. The Treasury has estimated that about 3 million people, or 10% of the private sector workforce, would be laid off temporarily.
