I just got laid off along with probably hundreds of thousands of other people.
Im not worried about myself getting sick.
Im worried I cant work. My experience and training is all in one field (restaurants) and as that is now all but banned in my state we are all jobless.
the state unemployment website has been crashing all day since the governor canceled like 400,000 jobs until further notice.
I know Im not the only one going through this.
but I do feel alone.
What can I do?
I have no money coming in. and now any job in any other sector will have hundreds of thousands of newly unemployed people looking for it in my state.
I got the call today.
I got fired once.
this feels much worse.
Being laid off because the state said we can't work.

I just had an unsettling experience in the UK. Local major supermarket, I just wanted some frozen veg (none left) found a head of brocolli and some carrots, but literally everything , I mean everything gone from the shelves. A young woman had a break down and burst into tears, they had to call an ambulance, seemed like a severe panic attack.
Not sure what the background story was, but maybe autistic or some other issues, lets not forget how frightening and confusing this can seem to people in the community who largely depend on things being consistent from day to day.
It was quite heartbreaking, she was really distressed.
