6. Isn't the percentage of people actually covered under unemployment less than what they seem ...

to make it? That is, it seems like a lot of the people I know, don't have access to unemployment checks or the like, because of a variety of reasons, gig worker, etc.

It's funny because these industries are going to find out that if they have manpower shortfalls, they're not going to be able to tempt people back to work, or hire new people, unless they sweeten the pot, that is, give them more money when they do work.

Of course this runs counter to what every business seems to run on, that workers will magically appear and take their low paying jobs (not all of businesses are this way, by the way, there are good businesses that care about their workers and won't open until they, the business, is sure that all will be safe). In places outside the city of STLMO, they've lifted the ban on businesses (so they can reopen), and a hell of a lot of them are not reopening. Smart.
