re: #431 teleskiguy
I suspect that one of the things we are going to learn from this incident is that most businesses run similar to most people living paycheck to paycheck… call it running billing cycle to billing cycle. There just aren’t many businesses, it seems, with deep cash reserves that would allow them to operate if revenue dried up for even a month.
For the record, I think it’s pretty fucked up that they didn’t have the decency to notify their employees that their insurance was being dropped. But I’m not surprised that a lot of businesses aren’t going to be able to pay employees if they are completely shut down.
