Collision repair tech...business as usual here and doubt it will change since we’re considered “essential” people need there cars. Work has slowed down a bit past week or two which sucks being a flat rate tech but we’ve been balls to the walls since October so a slow down is kinda nice for a little while to rest a sore body but I don’t care for the low pay checks but I guess it’s better than none.

I work from home (Accounting) husband is working (essential, elevator adjuster) so business as usual. Except now my extended family is quarantined at home now.

I feel like crap, but it's seasonal allergies.

I've got tons of things to do at home. THAT never changes LOL

If you own a home the work is endless.

Essential worker, you need to eat its been a rough few weeks keeping meat on the shelves for you and your families all over the US. Good news we seem to be catching up in the supply chain.

I need a tekvest to ride?
And someone is poor who started snowmobiling with an open trailer?
I started that way a long time ago and still enjoyed it.
Lighten up Francis.

I said "sleds being trailered with no cover whatsoever". I was NOT referring to open trailers. I used an open trailer myself for years, but at least I put a canvas cover on my snowmobile. When I see an open trailer, going down the road, with no salt shield and not even a canvas cover (on a new sled), I assume that the owner of the snowmobile is so economically strapped that they cannot even afford a $99 canvas cover to protect their sled from the salt spray getting into every nook and cranny on the machine.

And you don't need to ride like an idiot to NEED a TekVest, because you never know when a deer is going to pop out of nowhere or what the idiot coming the other way on the other side of that blind hill or corner is going to do. Knowing how a TekVest can protect you for life ending injuries, I assume the only reason that someone would not wear one is because they think a $300 TekVest is too expensive and they can't afford one.

You dont need a trailer to ride you need to lighten up we need more riders not less so if they can get any sled and reg it and ins get a helmet and lets go ride. U dont need a 50,000 pickup and a 5,000 trailer or a 14,000 sled. Lets get back basics so we can get more riders.

Same here. I am essential. I do machine work and cylinder head stuff for some auto repair shops, and I have a few projects for local farmers. I am essential too.

I hear ya. I just got notified today that my pay will be cut and no idea on when I’ll be able to go back to work. Probably more cuts coming even after I go back, as well. Already being told that this whole fiscal year will be affected. Now I just gotta hope that the wife gets laid off and not let go from her job.

Bummer, i would have expected any of the health care people to be safe from job cuts, especially as this government package is supposed to help fund hospitals.

I’m considered essential (somehow), but in a 100% commission position, and our sales are down 90% in two weeks:dunno:

My best friend works for a large, industrial HVAC contractor mostly spending his week running between 4-5 factories doing repairs and preventative maintenance. 4 of the factories are food processing facilities, none of which planned to shutdown.

Well last Friday, he got laid off due to a corporate knee jerk decision. He pointed out to his employer, that stuff breaks every day in their customer's large factories and customers are going to be upset that their on-site support is not readily available. It fell on deaf corporate ears.

Well, they called him this morning, begging him to come back to work on Monday because, as he predicted, stuff broke every day in their customer's large factories and customers are now pissed that their on-site support was not there to keep them up and running.

He will now work 3-4 weeks of paid overtime to get caught up after sitting home for a week.

Corporate idiots!!!

Right, considering the hospitals are being overrun, you would think they would need anyone willing and able.
