I don’t think that’s how an essential business is determined.  There are a lot of people who believe their religion is essential however. God bless em


Then they should read up on how a funeral in Albany, Gerogia created a hotspot there.

It is reckless and irresponsible for pastor's to be holding Church services at this time.  God understands.

I haven’t read this thread completely, so sorry if a repeat.

With the fed unemployment benefit of $600 per week, some people will make more gross income on unemployment versus working. 

In MN, the break even point is approximately $70k. At that point you are “better off” working from a gross income perspective.

This will help those who have to pay for benefits out of pocket. I have no idea if that was the intent.

I’ve had a young single person state they’d volunteer for a layoff   Doing the noble thing?  Or, seeing perceived personal gain? 

I have no idea of this person’s real motives.  Does make for some interesting conversation, though.


Does it matter what their motives are?  It's three months of enhanced unemployment.

I don’t think Marquette is on this kids radar. A lot of state of WI talent has not considered Marquette. Fortunately Baldwin isn’t considering Wisconsin either.


A few highly rated kids haven't considered Marquette lately, but MU has done fine in that regard.

My son recently got us started watching, How I Met Your Mother.  That's a pretty long-running show that I had never seen.  We're enjoying it. I have my doubts that we'll make it though 200+ episodes, but for now it's a nice diversion.

Chili I think there will be many anecdotes of abuse of this law for personal gain (people and corps and govt). 

However, with the massive stoppage in labor that we are having, as a business person and citizen I actually don't care on the people side.  If my goal is to keep as many people employed or spending (or living) as possible to keep the economy on life support while the virus puts people on life support--all the scenarios above are a win.

PS: if all this is short-lived and we have a labor 'shortage' due to generous government benefits, there is a way to fix that.

He may have been right about the threat...but he has been pushing this:

https://www.mediamatters.org/coronavirus-covid-19/fox-news-anchor-maria-bartiromo-and-sen-tom-cotton-keep-pushing-coronavirus

The Lancet - one of the most respected medical journals in the world (and which published the study he uses as the basis for his theory) - has stated that there is no substance to his claims.

You rail against fox, but then post an article from media matters?  C'mon now.
