I am retired....totally nonessential and useless.
Just ask my wife
Just ask my wife
My wife has showings scheduled for the next few days. She did have one couple ask that she hold off on listing because the wife was a waitress and is currently not working, but other than that its business almost as usual. She was hoping to be put as nonessential so her and our son could go to her bff in tampa FL for a couple weeks, 48$ a round trip ticket is hard to pass up.I drive by the title company every day and the lot is always full. Closings going on as usual. I Emailed my real-estate agent last week and asked to be removed form the listing updates and she replied OK but it's still the best time ever to buy and sell a house! Current house is mortgage free. I did notice in the week before I had the listing updates removed many listings were withdrawn.
So, on the government and logic thing.....
My job at DSA Detection, in MA, we make training aides, kits and sell consumables to TSA, FBI airports to do passenger screening. Among things like fingerprint test kits, alcohol wipes etc. We hold contracts for Dept of Homeland Security. So we still go to work. We carry a letter from Dept of Homeland Security.Are you and your job essential in regard to the current COVID19 pandemic, how and why?
This isn’t a thread about COVID19 and your thoughts, only your essential job and what you do, I’ll lock this is a heartbeat,....
Here in Louisiana, the governor issued a stay at home order effective this evening at 5:00 for all non essential workers.
We’re in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical manufacturing industry right outside New Orleans. We sell equipment and supplies to manufacturing plants; soft drinks, bread, dairy, poultry, beef. I’ll be coming in for work.
Thats a T-shirt that will get the crap beat out of you! And yet I want one. Talk today of going down to 4 days a week while retaining full medical. I'm down with that or anything that will reduce my chances of getting this bug.

That would shut down the electrical system overnight.It seems I've been deemed "essential", haven't missed a day's work. I'm conflicted about that, some time off would be nice .... Instrument/Electrical Technician in a plastics manufacturing plant.
I found this amusing, from Facebook:

Just to make sure your sitting comfy in your Air Conditioned/ Heated homes , you still have power to your microwaves and routers for Netflix, you can still scrub your butts with hot water ... to make sure those truckers have products to pick up for your shelves to remain as physically stocked as possible !
