Not trying to be a negative Nancy, but I don't envision any state reopening to last long.

I don't get pay cuts either. At least not across the board. Some firms are implementing a top down pay cut. I would think that makes sense. Anything that doesn't shed workforce during this time...

I missed the deadline for it. I wouldn't hold my breath for it to happen, but if enough states are off lockdown who knows. Mine won't be off lockdown when the sitting would occur.
