    Sooo should I try to stock up on weed now or...?

    I mean I know this ain't the biggest concern I should have right now, but as a dude who uses weed medicinally to manage mental health stuff it at least is A Concern.

    If I remember correctly, other states (CA?) that issued stay-home orders classified dispensaries as essential. Don't know if WA will do the same, but there's that at least.

    Until told otherwise I'm just gonna keep showing up for dialysis even though it’s not on the list it’s an essential service for me.

    What’s his enforcement plan, btw? Have the state patrol set up checkpoints and ask everyone what their business is?

    And what’s the legal authority for any of this shit?

    There are no details yet. "coming days" is what is said on website for enforcement.

    like am i gonna need to get a doctor’s note to travel from my house to treatment?

    This shit is getting ridiculous.

    I'd imagine dialysis is considered a doctor visit. I mean its essential to you.

    And I believe its honor system right now, just if people ignore the orders will it become less honor system.

    Washington state dental association already advised dentists to cancel all non-essential operations. So its not much of a change.

    I'm going to buy a bunch of edibles tomorrow to wait this out. Gonna go on a grocery adventure tonight and see what's left on shelves. I hope LQA is less mobbed than usual.

    I can let you know for certain tomorrow but my company was told they’d be able to stay open if such measures were put in place.

    We also received permission to take orders out in the parking lot for medical patients so they do not have to leave their car.

    I skimmed through the order and cannabis retail is still considered essential under the Food and Agriculture sector, so thankfully no hoarding should be necessary (although I suspect there's going to be a heavy run in the next 48 hours regardless)

    My store is on Capitol Hill, so mostly people living in small apartments and retirement communities, not a lot of room to hoard stuff. We're back up to staying pretty decently stocked, and even did over a million in sales last week. I live in Magnolia, same store chain located over here, shelved ransacked every day because lol rich people with big houses still gotta panic buy all the dry goods every day.

    The stores on top of Queen Anne are the same way: every rich motherfucker with a cavernous abode has been sweeping the shelves clean of groceries. Thank goodness they're delaying the closing/demolition of the Safeway up there, otherwise the hill would be quizzically underserved for outlet options. Last thing I want is more competition from those wealthy assholes for my precious bougie food down here in LQA.

    the notion that they will have checkpoints set up to hassle citizens is absurd

    where do you think the manpower might come from? even if he called up the national guard and every state trooper, there wouldn't be enough, and such an action would itself be a needless risk

    to the extent that this will be anything other than an honor system, any pressure exerted will be on businesses, and they'll assume that not having to go to work will be reason enough to stay at home

    and, given that "taking a walk" is one of the stated acceptable reasons for leaving your house, maybe relax a tiny bit

    unemployment benefits are usually a fraction of what your earnings would have been and that's an extremely big deal for any working-class person in Seattle

    Oh christ I just looked it up and it only pays 1/2 your previous pay (up to about 80k/yr).

    The last time I used it I could've sworn it was like 70 or 80%, which like, sucks but is a lot more reasonable.

    Someone getting minimum wage, full-time, ends up with half that--the equivalent of $6/hour on unemployment--which really misses the point of minimum wage being the minimum wage that someone can live on.

    Given what Inslee has done so far, my guess is that the full economic half of the lockdown efforts is coming shortly. Dude isn't perfect, but overall I'm pretty happy with the level of concern shown during all this.

    If he was perfect, they'd have adjusted the unemployment %'s along with eligibility, as well as sneaking a carbon tax in.

    He seems to care and is willing to use the power of the office. If people reach out and let his staff know where his policied have gaps, maybe we can get gaps addressed?

    Ok apparently it's been 1/2 since at least the mid-aughts, I'm not sure what it was before that.

    I'm guessing I thought it was more since the only thing they'll deduct is 10% for the IRS. So if at your previous employment you had deductions for retirement plans, health plans, and/or a higher tax rate, your old take-home would be closer to the UI benefit.

    I suspect he knows that unemployment has holes, but the state doesn't have the money needed to handle that much unemployment.

  • David WalgasDavid Walgas Registered User regular
    My best friend gets paid in cash for their job. It’s a long complicated story, but I would be amazed if their employer was paying for the unemployment insurance. Even knowing what they make, unemployment would cut their take home in half.

    Unemployment instead of just cutting a check is going to starve a lot of people on the margins.

    So anyone have a guess as to whether childcare is considered essential? We're worried the nanny we hired won't be able to/won't be comfortable coming to the house under these restrictions. I was pretty sure Inslee said childcare during the address, but it's not in the official document :?

    I finally got myself a letter from an ARNP and a test supposedly today. Yay.

    I'm not sure which one I'd rather be. Negative and a little by hypocondriatic or positive and justified. Probably the former, as if it's the latter...oh boy...

    If I knew for fact I wouldn't end up in the hospital and contribute to the crunch, I'd almost rather catch it now. I live alone, can work from home, and have enough supplies for weeks. And when I got over it and stopped being contagious, I'd (almost certainly) have immunity and could maybe take a vacation week and do something meaningful with it like help old people get supplies or do manual labor in hospitals or something.

    This is a terrible time to feel like my otherwise wonderful tech job provides little to no societal benifit. I feel like a moucher in this time of crisis.

    But I know the best thing I can actually do right now is continue staying at home and away from people.

    My work got everybody set up to work from home, but now the legal team is trying to get our lab labeled "Essential" and get us letters from the government letting us go back into work.

    So this will be hilarious. Video games are super important, ya'll.
