I mean, I feel both sides of the issue pretty strongly


It's really easy for me to say that I'm against opening back up. I have a good job for a company that has been awesome and supportive during this situation. I've only been able to work about 60% of normal capacity because we have a young child and no child care and we both work. My boss and company have been awesome about it.

Hardest part for me and my wife has been no child care. My wife is pregnant and has been exhausted so I've picked up a lot of the burden on the childcare and home management front. Getting through that has been tough, but we're all healthy and likely will come out of this situation in good shape.

I feel a lot for the people that aren't in a great situation because of the pandemic. They've been given expanded unemployment benefits, but those run out in July. If people think the country is in pain now, just wait for August and September and the end of the year. It is going to get REALLY bad as unemployment benefits run out unless something is done.

Again, we're asking those in the bottom 1/3rd of the economy to sacrifice a lot. They'll never be whole.
