The WSJ has some insight into Lord Damp Nut’s upcoming recession, which surprisingly shows some humanity:
“The U.S. economic outlook hangs in large part on whether business leaders respond to the new coronavirus crisis as they have with many past shocks: by laying off masses of American workers.
“So far they have largely avoided the tactic. But the pressure on companies to squeeze costs is building as consumers, governments and others pull back on activity. Purges of workers could become unavoidable in some industries such as shipping, air travel, retailing and dining as demand slows.”
Of course, Prznint Stupid is already planning on hurting the poors. The 4th Reich has blocked states from using Medicaid to expand medical services during the pandemic, and refuses to allow states to sign-up poor patients for coverage, set up emergency clinics, or to begin isolating and caring for the homeless.
Also, the very white White House decided to kick an estimated 700,000 people off of food stamps on April 1.
Such a kidder, Hair Füror is.
As the WSJ hints, that number will be much bigger, as CEO Bastards in all their wisdom cut back shifts and/or fire low-wage, service-industry workers who qualified for SNAP.
And remember: SNAP work requirements forces people to keep going to work when they get sick, so we got that working for us, too.
