And keep in mind, the real unemployment rate is most likely much higher than that reported to government agencies. That fact, mixed with the other realities of working class America, that most households have no savings, and have no discernible benefits without their jobs, and the recipe for disaster is already baked into the cake. Oh, and Covid deaths may be around a half million by early next year.
Dark days are coming. Darker than many of us in the USA have ever seen. I’m not sure we have fortitude to handle it.
