Who has a job that will continue even if we go on lockdown?

I could leave and go work from home right now and not miss a beat. I've considered it, but it doesn't sit a good example for the ones who need to be here, so I'm here until instructed otherwise from the rung above me on the ladder.

I don't like the idea of a forced shutdown, but man I could get some projects done around the ranch that I've been putting of.

Guess I'm not that essential after all. LOL.
Just got told to head back home and we will take it day to day.
All good, I'll just get a lot of the little projects finished up.
I worry for my wife though. It's gonna drive her Fn crazy if I'm home for to long:oops:😁

My wife is technically classified as a county emergency resource, so they could re-task her if needed. Even if they dont, she is working now and has to make visits to homes.
I'm in construction, we are still open with added precautions. I could see large jobsites being shut down shortly, some have over 500 men on them. That would be some major shit.

We're tearing up a street in front of a whole foods, it's ugly, people are definitely pissed. LOL
Of all the places to have to work around right now! 🤣

Probably less traffic than normal in other areas.

My family is in commercial construction (concrete contractor) we have about 25 employees. So far no job has been canceled and we are working as usual. Hopefully the concrete plants don't shut down because that would put us out of work. Just need the rain to stop so we can get on the jobs. Wife is an RN, she worked this weekend. Her hospital is no crazier than usual and there is no sense of panic there. She has two more shifts this week so we will see how it goes

They will have to post a cop out in front of my door 24 hours a day before I quit going in to work! I have too many employees that I am responsible for, we are taking all of the needed precautions here at the shop and if anyone wants to call in sick they can no issue. We have a ton of work that I need to get out the door... All of my guys are here cranking! Only thing that might hurt us is if they shut down UPS and FedEx?

I can work remote and we went from discretionary to mandatory today. Our supply chain is impacted so we're scrambling and getting yelled at from customers that wonder why we can't push the Chinese factories harder. They have no clue. Its a surreal time......................

I'm still going in and our Department really hasn't restricted us much. Had a .30 deuce tell us he had the virus the other night while taking the breath test so it could get interesting

Like many others I work from home but this thing is affecting almost every aspect of the US' and global economy. The financial impact is and will continue to be significant even for those who "have jobs while we're on lockdown"

I am the Salesforce Administrator for an industrial automation software company. Refineries, food processing plants, power plants, pipelines, shipbuilding, you name it. My team is based out of the UK so I work from home a couple days a week as the Lake Forest office is just the assigned office for me. I am working from home all week now, luckily its no change for me, same robust tech set up in my home office as at work. Our business will be impacted just as any other global company as our sales guys aren't travelling at much, but the majority of our business comes from renewals of software business of companies that are not shutting down. The impact will be not as much growth as we want, but I am optimistic that there won't be nearly the same effect most are suffering with.

My team is still running full steam, we’re just doing it remotely. We do software sales and renewals for automation software. We’re hoping to keep our forecast for the remainder of this quarter but expect to lower next quarter.

On the plus side the majority of our clients are consumer goods manufacturers (bottling plants, bakeries, etc) and municipalities (water, gas and electric). Last I checked the bakeries were still baking bread, the bottlers were still producing water and coke and people still need running water and power in their homes so I think our hit will be temporary and we’ll make up whatever we miss in the following quarter.

The funny thing is that all our administration personnel are "working from home" because the are considered non essential for day to day operations. So if they are non essential why do they make so much more than those of us that are crucial to the operation of the plant?

We were told at 11am to work from home until further notice.
I get in at 6 and the email came about 8. Why didn’t they let me know last night I could slept in. Lol. Is what it is I guess. I already got a couple things done. I better slow down or work myself out work. Wait. House projects never end, do they.

I've lost all my work, studios have shut down. I was booked solid until May, now nothing. In fact, my next job scheduled is the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo leaving July 12th. NBC sent me an email saying that they are watching the situation closely but plan to be in Tokyo. We'll see. I guess I'll work on my house and live off of my savings.
Same here... Was booked solid until May as well, Coachella/Stagecoach was a killer for me. 14 shows pulled off the wall on Friday. 20 cameras on the Olympics IF it goes forward but they are saying gonna use local guys now. Lots of boat time now... LOL

Auto Repair, so I am exempt so far....I'll be at work through this whole deal, as I am 2 weeks in advance, and no one wants to miss their appointments.... 😁

Other than seeing absolutely retarded behavior at the supermarket, everything is rolling along as usual with me. They break em, I fix em, get paid.

Cancers not an elective illness so the RN wife is working extra hours.
I'm retired and the DD checks have been clearing the bank fine.

Earlier in this thread I made a flippant post about me being retired and the checks keep coming in.

Now I'm feeling like an asshole for being so inconsiderate and pea-brained. A bunch of RDP people are going to be knocked flat by this deal.

I'm hoping it doesn't get too bad for those of you that take a hit from reduced hours and layoffs. Stay strong.

For what most of you call an overpaid Fire Fighter, I work 26 of the next 30 days.

Where is that happening? 26 days “mandatory” or “voluntary” sign up for OT?
