There is no doubt the Pandemic impacted and disrupted almost every single part of our lives, but one of the most obviously hardest hit industries was the Hospitality sector. 👩‍🍳 🍽 ☕️ 🍻 👨‍🍳 🛎

It was a rollercoaster🎢 of openings and closings, full of lots of uncertainty about what was safe or not - and when. Not to mention the budgets and wages that were already stretched so thin - now pushed to the brink. 💸 It felt like every single day was hard for a while.

But now we seem to be turning some kind of corner, and it’s up to us to build this brand new world the way we want it to be. So whats the new normal for summertime dining and work in the Service Industry? ☀️ 🍹

What are the ways you’ve noticed restaurants or bars changing now that we are two years into the pandemic?? Have there been any positive impacts you’ve noticed from the pandemic at all?? Is it starting to get easier working in restaurants now that it’s 2022 vs 2020?? Whats next for Hospitality?? 🍽

I'm not sure if anything changed for the better from the pandemic. It seems like there is more fraud, more people wanting handouts instead of actually earning their way. Every place I go seems to have Gratuity as a part of the process. People got lazier with shopping and delivery options.

@PORSHIA VIVIANS have you had any luck with your unemployment benefits since you posted? I'm sorry to hear about your current struggles. We have seen some members find support in getting their unemployment payments unstuck by contacting their local state representative.

We do have a Work from Home resource center which will provide you with great advice on how to get a remote job. You can also do a job search on Jobcase for remote work too. Good luck Porhia and please come back and let us know how things are going.

Ive been in appeal since the day my second Edd claim started 9/8/2020 and still haven’t gotten a hearing date which is unnecessary in the first place because I have verified my identity with oxford appeal board and idme and the Edd multiple times and the identity issue was the cause of this mess in the first place, I’ve lost a business, trucks, house and been homeless for a year now because of this pandemic. Does anyone know how I can get this issue resolved. #benefits #stimuluscheck #advice #coronavirus #news #motivation #ksbw #montereybay #centralcoast #news #theherald #pandemic

I received a letter about my PUA saying I need to prove I was affected by COVID. I’ve sent an appeal with the following statement; I was let go from my job around February 2020. I was unable to work because the primary care doctor of the person I was caring for told me her patient was high risk for COVID and immune compromised, because of that the doctor advised me not to leave the house, because if I did I would risk harming her patient and potentially killing him due to COVID exposure. The person I was caring for recently passed away on February 11, and I've since been looking for a job and can give documents for proof, death certificate and proof of looking for employment. #unemployment #pua #advice #hawaii #pandemic

They de-activated your card @Mohamed Hamadou . Do you know if it's an IDMe verification issue or was someone trying to access your account fraudulently? Have you had any success following up with the unemployment agency directly?

You can find helpful resolution tips and strategy options on our Unemployment Resource Center. Take a quick look and see what other members have to share about similar experiences.

I'm sorry to hear that @Roxana Salgado - unfortunately, we are not unemployment experts and cannot always provide specific advice. I'd recommend that you keep trying to get hold of your UI office or if you’ve exhausted all other options, trying to contact your state representative. You can also check out this article about practices to resolve unemployment issues. Though we are not unemployment experts, we are job search experts! Are you looking for work? Head to our Getting Hired Resource Center to get started!

@Roxana Salgado we've heard a lot of confusion about #unemployment - but I encourage you to keep your personal records confidential. Especially as it pertains to unemployment payments. When you're ready, I'd also encourage you to fill out your bio and work experience on your profile - the more we know about what you're looking for, the better the community can help with your job hunt. Hope this is helpful!
