But the cash ran out after 8 weeks, and she was fired again. Her company informed her that they planned to bring her back in early September, but in the past 2 weeks, she learned that her mission was chosen as outstanding.
She said: “I definitely think I will resume work on September 1.” For Lorincz, like millions of others, short-term layoffs are ultimately long-term. She has no confidence in discovering anything new anytime, anywhere.
She said: “It was a devastating experience.”
Permanent mission losses are increasing rapidly and will continue to climb
The number of unemployed who actually lost long-term tasks or completed short-term tasks has actually soared in the past 7 months, from 1.9 million in February to 4.5 million in September.
This means that in the past six months, the increase in this proportion is actually the fastest in more than 50 years on record.Never before has the losses of these long-term missions doubled in such a short period of time, even during the entire Great Recession.
And long-term mission losses are bound to continue to rise.
None of these long-term mission losses are shown in the latest figures from the Department of Labor.
Lorincz said that she was actually unemployed in the past when a start-up company she worked for left the company. But she never feared the ability to discover new things.
She said, “I’m looking for odd jobs here and there. I’m rushing through the door and doing my best to pay for it.” “I don’t know what I will do if I want to support my family. During the pandemic, I have no insurance. too frightening.”
In fact, in the past 7 months, the number of people unemployed due to short-term jobs has actually increased rapidly, increasing by nearly 100,000. Many of these employees are accustomed to moving from one task to another, but now they are not able to discover the typical next task.
Considering finishing university studies, Justin Doan, 29, actually worked as a travel supervisor, production supervisor and audio engineer in the live music market. He made a lot of money in tasks that he dreamed of constantly. But considering the trip on March 13, he did not have an operation at all.
“Everything stopped. At the time we didn’t realize it would be closed for so long,” he said. “The thought was that we would reschedule in May. This never happened.”
Focus on changing careers
Doan has actually been trying to save money and said that now he emphasizes that live music will not resume until the second half of next year. This may indicate that he needs to change his career. But he said this is a truly challenging time to think about such a major shift.
He said: “There are millions of unemployed people out there.” “Many people may have more written experience than me.”
Most people who are now completely unemployed have actually lost their long-term jobs, which are the majority of their occupations.
Juan Jose Martinez Camacho, 59 years old, has actually been a chef for thirty years, considering that one day he worked as a dishwasher in a restaurant When asked to fill in.
He has actually been a chef at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Redondo Beach, California for 22 years. When he was fired on March 23, he thought it was only 2 or 3 months before things returned to normal. But late last month, he was told that he had actually completely lost his job, paying $22 per hour. In fact, he has been looking for other cooking jobs with bad luck.
Mexican immigrant Martinez-Camacho (Martinez-Camacho) said: “Thinking that if the situation does not get better, I may have to do other types of work, which makes me feel pain.” “This is what I like to do.”
Luggage and backpack designer Ann asked to use a pseudonym due to the terms of the severance contract, and was also annoyed by her inability to discover new tasks in her field. Travel demand has actually fallen, which means that the luggage of several people is required. As millions of trainees gradually learn about remote information, the demand for backpacks has become scarce.
She lost her mission at a Zoom meeting in August.
Ann said that during the entire Depression, she also lost a mission, but this time she was more worried.
She said: “To be honest, I don’t know what to do.” “It’s much scarier. You can’t even meet people face to face when it comes to finding a job. It’s too scary.”
Ann said that because she was 53 years and 11 years older than the last time she was unemployed, she was also worried about losing her job this time.
She said: “This is just a competitive landscape.” While her partner is still working, “This is no longer a single-income economy. You must have two incomes.”
