what kind of jobs/fields would be worth pursuing to ensure a minimal degree of stability/mobility post-covid?

pls share visions from your crystal balls.

lotsa folks out of work w the lockdowns, my job is too secure. city gov has been trying to soften us up to the idea that should it become necessary they'll lock us in the water plant for a couple weeks at a time

na we make drinking water. occasionally someone pulls up at our gate bc they mistook us for the wastewater plant, the best tact there is to ask them what they think we keep in the 4 million gallon tank right in front of them

i temporarily left my job because of covid in order to quarantine. most of the people in my building are old as fuck and riddled with secondary medical conditions so I'm doing them a favor even though they refuse to close until our trump-inspired governor issues a shelter in place order (won't happen). they also won't pay me but they let me take a temporary leave without laying me off. i have some money saved for like 2-3 months. I think its worth it since apparently 20-40 yr olds can easily be hospitalized and I really don't want to experience what it feels like to not be able to breath so bad that you think "hospital" in the US of A.

unemployment gang. my job's not coming back. also i've got a friend in HR at an advertising firm whose boss is relieved about the timing of the coronavirus because it gives a cover-up reason for letting half of the company go, which they were working up the courage to do since november. i'm imagining similar stories across all industries. it may be common sense here but i think a lot of people will be shocked to find what lies on the other side of this quarantine thing. hilarious timing.

sorry nearlyoctober. that's my general sense too about it since if these periodic crises are tied to material factors, then the material factors are at least typically very concealed, the corona is the cover story for whatever upcoming class robbery they have planned, and a way to coordinate these mass-firings. if you got free time now and want to team up on something technical & non-alienated (you were working on ray tracing, and interesting textiles or were interested in the 2nd?)

thanks for the kind thoughts. the climate has urged me back into studying marx and i've been playing around with the idea of articulating economic concepts with interactive simulations. i came across alan freeman's capitalism 9.0, which mostly simulates marx's reproduction schemas and the circuit of capital. lots of technical bugs though. so i've been kicking around the idea of studying and working on this alongside re-reading capital and other political economy. maybe i'll report back with something in due time. i'm blessed right now to have some room in my life to do this sort of leisurely stuff, might as well take advantage of the circumstances. otherwise if you have some work you'd like to discuss or ideas you want to kick around please reach out!
