    That's why you don't live outside your means. An architect is a good career but she has two kids and there is no way a condo that nice in Washington D.C is less than 500,000 USD.

    America is not the greatest country ever. I'm sorry but this is why we need social safety networks like other countries. They really dropped the ball.

    I don't understand she has two children, but where is the father? and in the event that she is separated from her husband, she receives child support, in addition to food stamps for them … or at least she should receive that, I suppose ??

    My grandparents always told me to save, save, save to prepare for a rainy day. Sadly, most people lived a life focused on immediate gratification. People always needed to have the newest iPhone, laptop, designer clothing, luxury vacations, expensive cars, etc. Instead, they should have been focusing on aggressive saving. Well, here we are…. My life is great right now because I lived a life focusing on my grandparents advice. I hope when we come to the other side of this, people learn the lesson and become more fiscally frugal and less reliant on debt to support a lifestyle they are incapable of maintaining.

    America is sowing the seeds of out of control wealth inequality, greed fueled profit taking, especially in real estate and paid off politicians that have been corrupted by corporations. Oh yeah and the polarization that has led to a bizarre level of ignorance, especially on the right.

    The post-Corona era seems to be offering two kinds of proposals. In one way, the return of the human story with a few steps allows more than natural factors. The other is to allow digitization to make life more transparent. Establishing this second method correctly on a human setting can be critical to the start of a new culture.

If an when the jobs come back , try to share more with the jobs let everybody prosper an live well here in these United States.

    Here's what you can do if your homeless and need a job

    The key the main key is look for cash jobs it privately owned businesses
    Like a liquor store you can go in there and say I need a cash job can I mop floors can I take out the trash can I stop liquor

    Do this place is like pawn shops and if you don't think of any jobs you can do for them just say is there any thing I can do for cash I'll show up every day at this time and take out the trash

    Check bars wash cars at used car dealerships you could even ask the owner of the car dealership would you like me to hold up a sign that says used cars $1,000 down and stand by the street and work all day

    You can make beds at these privately owned hotels when people check out you could be there to check out time and make the beds for cash the owners get tired of doing that one

    You could go to storage facilities Self Storage in help offer unloading help two people and the owner and see if there's anything you could do for cash like cleaning out units and putting all the stuff in one unit people leave their stuff behind in the owners of those places don't know what to do you could offer to throw it all in one unit so we can be done with easier and if you have a truck that's even better you can haul it off

    Here's some good ideas if you have nothing you can stand at a gas station in front of the air pump with a sign that says air pump service $5 you can also do this when if you're on the street in a wheelchair with no legs or one leg or one arm you can bend over and reach the valve stem and if you could get some equipment you could get headlight cleaner and tire and rim cleaner and charge more

    Or you can stand at the carwash or in a lawn chair when the sign that says Car Wash $20 detailing vacuuming floor mats and trunk

    If you have a car and some money and you're about to be homeless or you are homeless you can get back on your feet just keep all your documents like your SSI your birth certificate your driver's license and try to keep your phone service you can start a poop scooper business it's an easy business low start-up cost no one  does it all you need is a flat head snow shovel from Home Depot a five gallon bucket with Liners in it and a tool to Scoop the Poop onto the shovel you just leave the bucket in one place and you go around and you get all the poop on the shovel and then you dump it it's a recurring job so that means it'll keep paying you recurring is the best and you got to put an ad in the paper in your local paper and you can sit at the gas station and wait for calls and pump air and all that takes is a sign pumping air is probably better than car washes because people are stopped at the gas station or you can wash windows there maybe buy some equipment and detail cars if you got your internet maybe you could look up YouTube and how to details car real quick I saw some guys at the carwash with a professional sign that said auto detailing and that probably is low start up to and they were charging $35 car

    Get in a good location around lots of cash jobs

    Getting busy is the key just doing something

    a mistake people make his move to Corpus Christi or California go somewhere that you're familiar

    Don't walk around to see homeless people walking around in Fort Worth where they Goin there's nowhere to go over here is the same as over  get try to get planted somewhere working for cash and stable everyday

    If you got no phone a good tip is a TracFone from Walmart

    You can also donate plasma at a plasma center and you can also donate blood for cash

    You can buy sign at Walmart and the Sharpie marker

    And if you're stranded at home with no gas and the lights off you can do chores for The Neighbors like mow lawns wash dishes in wash clothes

    and if you need somewhere to sleep there safe and you have no car you can knock on doors and do chores like mowing and I'll drive if you can put a tent in their backyard then you can use their address to get on disability

    God bless I hope this info helps you

    If we were living under communism, all the money the rich have right now would be ours and having a state job, we would be safe and sound with our monthly pay-checks.

    This is what happeneds to the world of US capitalism, the thing that everyone wanted. Now that they have no more communist against to fight to and maintain a social agenda , so all rights of the work class are slowly disappearing. No public health care , no public education system , nothing for the public and everything for the leaders. We are just going to a distopic future reality where a bunch of companies will rule the world and the destiny of the human kind..

    Think one of the biggest lessons is how important it really is have more than 1 source of income, it's too easy for employers to just drop employees any moment, whether for their own reasons, or situational like right now. I'm out of my regular job, but luckily living from savings and side hustles, actually just made a video about dealing with unemployment if anyone's out of work too, sending feels for anyone in similar shoes

    I find it interesting that these World News channels focus heavily on the U.S. Like are their no other content from other countries? This crisis is not American-centered, it is a global epidemic that affects everyone, not just Americans. I like to learn more about the situation worldwide and not just my backyard.

    Another single female raising children, wonder where all the men are ? Staying together always helps. I have cared for both of my formerly separated parents for the last 15 years, not a single strictly feminized woman wanted to help me in this situation. This has led me to almost not feeling empathetic with theses individuals at all. And don’t get me wrong, I’m highly educated, multilingual, but with two ill parents and no woman in sight to help you, what am I supposed to do ? ?

    It means a shift in manufacturing. The United States will most likely become a hub for manufacturing after cutting ties from China.

    Increased migration will also cause wages to drop on top of the COVID-19 shutdowns. Bernie Bros can forget about their $15 per hour minimum wage.

    Well thanks to the US/global financial machine pushing consumer debt. I'm not surprise when the house of cards came down, people would struggle. Many industries are thriving/hiring. We should stop paying extra money for the unemployed, why work when you're making good money to be home.

    Just for clarification and because the news sometimes exaggerates. The situation is not that bad (yet) in America. I don't know anyone who is starving. Unemployed people are actually making decent money. They get $355 for State and $600 Federal each week. So basically around $46,000 per year. Yes, the money is delayed in some states. We also get a stimulus check whether or not you are working. $1,200 per person and $500 for each child. I got $3,900 in my account last week and I am still working. There is a bill in congress to give $2000 to every American 16 years of age or older. Amazon, Lowes, Home Depot and local grocery stores are all hiring right now in my area. I know there are alot of haters that wish it were worse than that in the US, but at the moment it is not…

    It will be leaders like Trump, Modi, Australia’s leader and Boris Johnson who will need to lead this charge against China. The leaders of Germany, France, Canada will once again fall back into globalism and continue to sell their people out.
    Anyone who supports China after this needs to be sent to China permanently. Start with Hollywood executives and LeBron James who love China more than they do their own nations
