That is a fair question. I am a teacher and we are still getting paid. My local club and park commission are actually still paying me, which I wasn't sure they would. I am very lucky compared to most. My last bit of anxiety comes from owning five rental homes and wondering if they will all be able to pay. Many renters are taking toward social media to make a crazy push to be waived of paying rent.

Not all of us do, just the a-holes.

I have a guy that works for me that is twice my age with over 40 years experience in our field. No degree. I have more respect for him than some of my colleagues that have college degrees.

Hell, I've always said I don't expect my kids to go to college if they want to do something that doesn't require a college degree. Just because I went and received 2 degrees, doesn't mean much kids have to do the same thing to be successful.

College degrees are largely overrated now because a shite ton of people have them, and many of them don't even work in a field related to their degree. I graduated with 15 or 20 people in my program, and only 3 of us work in the field still.

My income comes from a pension, SS and dividends. Even though I expect some or all of the dividends to be cut I do not need a government check. Nor should I get one.

You think it takes advanced degrees to make a good living?

To think, I could have been a deadbeat pos and gotten this one little check instead.


You think making less than 75-99K means you're a deadbeat POS?

I'm pretty sure I know the answers to both questions, but the way you stated your post makes you sound like an a-hole.

my parents have lost nearly $200,000 with the crash in the stock market. they're both retired. im sure they'd be just fine with getting a little check to help out.

Only if they panic sold. Otherwise, all that has happened is their portfolio value is down 200K. If they're managing the portfolio correctly, they should have had roughly 20% in cash when all this started and should have or should soon be putting that money to work.

My wife gave up earnings from her advanced degree to stay home and raise our children. But thanks for the broad brush-stroke that includes us in the irresponsible pos that are getting this check. You seem like a great guy.

if they would've moved out of the market when this all started and waited it out their portfolio would be down about 40k. so they still lost money.

and don't give me the "its not real money until you cash out" shite. thats a financial advisor bull shite line they say when their clients are losing their ass.

The people getting fricked over are small business owners and people who do most of their work via 1099.

I had an excellent year in 2018 and then invested heavily into a new business. Therefore, no check for me.

Because they are insecure and passing judgement on others makes them feel better about themselves.

How are they financially hurt ?

Were their Social Security and/or pension checks stopped ?

This bill was supposed to help WORKING people who weren't going to get paid.

re: So people that didn't miss a check are getting paid?
Dems got their experimental $15/hr living wage into the bill. On TOP of state unemployment, here is an additional $600/week (40 Hours x $15).
Massive Corporate and Social Welfare Bill with the upper and middle upper not getting anything but the bill to pay for it all.
According to legislative staff, Bailout Package 4 is already in progress right now. Many trillions more in Corporate and Social Welfare coming within 30 days.
Only problem is CONgress is taking their 30 day vacation from the stress of their jobs but might not be able to return to work if D.istrict of C.orruption is on lockdown.

I've got a cop friend who obviously is still working and getting paid. I asked him what he was gonna do with his check from the virus.
Him: 'I've always wanted to start buying stocks. I've been doing some research and there are some bargains out there.'
