Individuals can get f*cked, though.

Now that the adults are in charge I expect it will be more difficult to get speedboat money.

"The federal government's Paycheck Protection Program provided small-business owners with just under $800 billion in COVID-19 relief"

All that money going to businesses instead of individuals...We should have taken the bottom 50% of households and split the $800 billion among them instead: $13,000 per household. Immediately address homelessness and food insecurity.  Let corporations go out of business, take that money and protect actual people.

Sure, but at the time the President and one house of Congress were Republican, so we took what we could pass.

I will say, as a self employed gig worker, the EIDL last year certainly helped a little.

Of course, I followed the rules and only claimed myself.

My friend that works security at a local hotel mentioned that a couple in the house keeping department claimed the max and got 10k each. Rolled into work in a "new" BMW one day.

I live just across the city limits in the county and don't qualify for the EIDL this time around.

Thankfully I planned my finances accordingly while the PUA money existed. So I haven't felt the hurt too badly.

Last interview step for a job in 2 weeks. I'm so ready to get back to working.
