How much longer do you think it’s gonna last?


As we near the end of the first week of the shutdown – the novelty is wearing off and it’s starting to feel real. While it was fun to track all the cool deals around town – I’m now wondering how long, realistically, this thing might actually last. Obviously losing even one day of pay is painful for some and catastrophic for others but for those who have a little cushion – how much longer could you last before making some serious financial cuts? For those who’ve applied for unemployment – did the process run smoothly? What percentage of your paycheck will you receive?
