When I asked my doctor if I should go back to work. She said it depends on the safety protocol. Then she mailed me the Advanced Directive booklet. I am at high risk for death if I get the. Covid 19.

It should be a case by case, if the person is able to work, then yes. If the person has underlying health issues that catching Covid-19 could cost them their life, then no.

It depends on the type of job and health of the individual. If you are an unemployed food service provider who is not at risk, I would say yes unless you are too scared and staying home.

In Washington state we have a requirement that people do one job search a week. I’m not finding it difficult, because there are plenty of online jobs available to apply for in my field.

TN has work search requirements if you have lost your job due to COVID. I have not received any unemployment pay, and all of the calls I am receiving are for $10.00-$13.00 an hour. I can't live off that amount. The jobs available before COVID was at least $18.00 to $20.00 hour. I was given Early retirement 3 years ago making $43,000.00. I think my age, is 1 factor. Because any interview I have went on there is no call back. I have worked in Accounting Receivables/Payable for 23 years.

There are jobs available, you may not be getting what you use to but there is work. The Government paid SOME people to stay at home while others still had to work, now you want to complain because you got comfortable. Not fair to those that didn’t get the extra money and still had to work. Stop whining and go to subway and get a job.

I’ve been trying to get a job since May. I also have yet to receive anything from unemployment. I certify every 2 weeks like I’m supposed to, and nothing. Don’t get me started with the phone calls, I have not been able to talk to anyone in tha Unemployment office. The struggle is real.
