Re: Are You Working from Home and Getting Paid?
I've been working from home for at least the last 6 years. Wouldn't have it any other way. I've basically been "sheltered in place" that whole time.

I'm finding it a bit strange working from home. It really slows down time, that's for sure. lol
 Quoting: Anonymous Girl


I'm way more comfortable. I show up on time 100% thanks to no commute. I have less stress, and perform better in my own environment. It's nice to be able to lay down for a bit over lunch. I love it.

"If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead it becomes the logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs. Communism, or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite." -- Gary Allen, 1971

Re: Are You Working from Home and Getting Paid?
I am still going to work and getting paid. Some.
Most of my income is commission so as business has died that will be drastically reduced. Most likely we will not close. But the plan is if anyone tests positive they will close for a day or two to disinfect and sanitize. At that point, it would probably be too late anyway. But my employer is wanting to make sure we are able to get by if we have to be out of work due to illness, which is pretty much any illness at this point. Just please don't come to work if you feel ill. Giving us extra pto time if needed.

My part time job is done for now. The store (retail chain) has closed until April 2. Of course that can change.

Basically I see losing at least half my income. I'm supporting my daughter in college as well so it's going to be hard.
I'll make arrangements but I'll get through it.

Re: Are You Working from Home and Getting Paid?
My wife works for a college, they are alllowing her to work from home.
I work in accounting and it is tax time so I am still going to the office. I only work this job during tax time January through April. I have my own business that is busy in the summer. Well it is normally busy in the summer, I am worried about this summer because most my money is made may through September. I may be in trouble in a few months because I have spent a lot of money on inventory that I may not be able to sell. I will have to start paying for that inventory soon. I may have to drop my paid membership here if things go bad for me.

lol Yeah, I think in normal circumstances, it would be a lot more relaxed, but right now, I think even working from home, it's stressful. Mostly because I'm working AND on GLP reading about all this doom.

Re: Are You Working from Home and Getting Paid?
My son and his wife bought a store last year in Santa Fe and last month they closed on another store and were fixing up the interior

They had to close the one store because most of the gals working there are older and have had to put the other one on hold for right now

I can hear the worry in his voice and it kills me as his Mom

Re: Are You Working from Home and Getting Paid?
This obviously applies to just the last couple of weeks.

I am working from home and getting paid. Our yearly calendar has now been changed because of this, and we will be working through (if/when we go back) what would have otherwise been weeks we would not have. Because of that, we are only supposed to put in 3 hours a day, maximum 15 hours a week during this time. I'm putting in more than that though which is fine by me. I'm just grateful I'm getting paid.




Thank you to everyone who voted. :)

My wife is working from home until further notice. Set up her office yesterday and got her remotely connected. I'm construction, so our season here in Michigan hasn't gotten started yet. Not sure when it actually will, either...
This is the way the world ends...
