When people are making more money sitting at home and playing video games rather than contributing to society and being back at work then there is a problem. Obviously logic is not your thing. 
 

I dare you to go ask as many businesses like the smaller restaurants and speak with owners on this particular issue. They can tell you first hand that they are refusing to come back to work. I guess the business owners losing their cars and houses don’t matter to you right?

They might want to try paying more.

First of all that 2K is not limited to just full time employees so your numbers don’t add up the same way. Many are indeed making more by staying at home.  I know of plenty of people looking for their staff to rejoin them at their business and they are refusing because they rather sit and get the CERB

I think you can also work for up to $1000 per month over and above CERB without losing it.

Yep that is my understanding too... huge win for part-time employees..

It’s real easy for you to say business owners need to pay people more when you’re not the one responsible for all the bills. Do you think it’s feasible to charge $20 for a burrito and everyone is happy? It doesn’t work that way. Your world would cause immediate bankruptcy. Then everyone loses.

Not everyone...just the business owner on the edge. Way too many restaurants anyways.

Measures for the most vulnerable should remain in place until that vaccine comes.

 

My point is that there are many in society that would have been able to come back a bit sooner to right some of the damage of this obliterated economy. There was and is no need for CERB to continue for some of those collecting to this day and to days that seem to never end. 
 

There already is a “universal basic income”. It’s called min wage. We still live in a society where the harder and more you do, the more you will be rewarded. 

Obliterated economy?  I barely know anyone that was laid off........many who started working from home, sure, but I didn't see many businesses outside of the service industry actually shut down......not in the Okanagan anyway.

Nothing against Brazil but I'm surprised they even have the infrastructure/resources to record 55,000+ new cases... I suppose they are more 1st world than I imagine. The poorer countries undoubtedly will have crappy statistics

I expect Brazil's numbers are far, far, far worse.  There's no way they are keeping track of those dying in the poor parts of Rio etc.

Sometimes there can be a backlog on reporting tests too from some areas in Brazil.

Back over 30,000 cases in the US. Pence says great job beating the Covid. Trump says open it up so I can campaign. :picard:

If there aren’t a ton of arrests in short order I’d be surprised. No way Bolsonaro is happy with these numbers getting out.

 

MBGA!!

Didn’t realize so many players had returned.

It's interesting that Keith Baldry said yesterday that the tests really aren't that good.  Testing has 30% false negative results.  I would say this means that testing must be done multiple times to screen properly

What don’t you not get about employers? They are the ones taking the risks and paying all the bills. Many businesses are barely keeping their heads above water. You have absolutely nothing in you that can see what others go through. You’re very self centred. Let’s put it this way since you think that way. What’s going to happen when that business goes bankrupt to “pay you more”? Wait, I know. You don’t care because you will just collect EI right? :picard:

When the 2nd wave hits it won't be as bad as the Spanish Flu (aka the chart above).  

 

Because in a hundred years, society has learned to wash their hands, perform social distancing, increase awareness (via social media).  And advancement in medicine, vaccines, and flattening the curve.

 

The projections I've seen is that it would most likely mirror the first wave.  Maybe a bit higher as I don't see the Government shutting down the economy again.

 

Great for Canada because we did an awesome job.  Scary for others like the USA.
