I am fortunate. I am a paid employee, with good employment protection, and the travelling public are still needing my services even now, and will certainly need them when things eventually get back to normal. In the mean time, I will not have run up impossible debts that collapse my ability to offer my services.
In the industries that provide the good stuff about which we love to chat here, so many are self-employed, so many are just getting by. Venues, artists, festivals, support staff – they won’t all survive this, and we will all be the poorer. Hell, just read Karine’s words; she says it so much better.
