“People Who Lost Their Job Due To This Crisis, What Is Your Story?”—A Viral Thread


“Not me, but my wife has been told that basically “we’ll call you if we need you,” and they don’t really need anyone tbh. She hasn’t worked a minute since the 13th. And my sister was a bartender at an arcade, so she’s totally f—ked. She’s been laid off with the promise of reinstatement when they reopen.”—motherfuqueer


“My experience is pretty unique. In a nutshell, my wife and I live in New Zealand and had planned a two year working Visa in Toronto. We were supposed to leave in April, so we had obviously already handed in our notices of resignation to our bosses. Long story short, Canada shut it’s borders and my boss has already hired my replacement. As a side note, they shut the borders on my birthday.”—paranoid427


“Hey man, just wanted to let you know I arrived in Toronto on that same two-year visa from Scotland like 2 and a half months ago. I got a job and everything set up and now it’s all been thrown into disarray and I’m sort of stranded over here, at least until things calm down. I sort of wish I was in your shoes (minus the replacement stuff that sucks regardless). Stay strong and who knows, maybe see you out here at some point if my lungs don’t implode.”—finnual
