You don't show it in your posts.
You should know that the trades get hit hard. the owner of a McDonalds can't do it all themself on all shifts. A finish carpenter or a hard surface installer can make his own wages. Painters don't "need" the helpers. Carpenters don't need the 'clean up" guys if it cuts their hours.
That is what is coming. those "helpers" and employees aren't going to be able to go out and start their own businesses.
I've seen the good times and the bad times and I know who is going to get hurt.
