The Great Debate of 2020: Necessary or Overreaction
I'm sure you're correct (I bet a DC vote on allowing an exemption during this crisis would be right down party lines, what do you think?) but ignore that and address all the other employees in that article. (Not saying you, just everyone).
The 76ers president was excoriated yesterday for suggesting that hourly workers were going to lose jobs and take pay cuts while Joel Embid said he'd donate 500K for that (something along those lines).
If we're calling out fat cat billionaire sports franchise owners in this crisis, shouldn't we hold other fat cats to the same expectations (Harvard etc) or their insanely well paid mostly not working staff, to make sure the bottom tier workers get theirs?
What are your thoughts on Boeing asking for $60 Billion from the Government due to Financial Peril?
Told my wife last night...if this nearly complete shutdown of the economy continues, we will long for the days of the 2008 recession. Small business will be all but eradicated, and unemployment numbers will be through the roof, with the poorest among us unable to cope. There's a mortality rate to that, too...and it affects a much larger group of people.
That's a brave stance among the hysterical lemmings.

That won't work. Fixing the 737 max timeline is not in Boeing hands. It is actually in the FAA hands and how quickly they choose to move. And they move very, very slowly with their oversight. Think of how quick the NCAA makes decisions, and they are fast compared to the FAA and you get an idea what it is like working with the FAA.
That's because you're using addition to fix a calculus problem.
This weekend I will likely be called into my hospital to work (I haven't done hospital care in 7 years) because they have 411 beds and anticipate over 600 patients (NOT coronavirus patients). We have a tent hospital at our state fairgrounds when the hallways get too crowded with gurneys. Let's hope you don't have a loved one here that needs an appendectomy, or suffers a stroke, or has a need for gallbladder removal; otherwise they may end up in a MASH like situation; or worse.
