Hi All ... this information is specific to California tow operators and tow business owners struggling to make headway during this virus scare.       R.


From State Assemblymember Marie Waldron's office the following information is posted:


Cancellations of events and work is causing unexpected economic hardships for employees and employers. Here is information that may help:

- If you are unable to work due to having or being exposed to COVID-19 (certified by a medical professional), you can 
file a Disability Insurance (DI) claim  
- If you’re unable to work because you are caring for an ill or quarantined family member, you can 
file a Paid Family Leave (PFL) claim
- If your employer has reduced your hours or shut down operations due to COVID-19, you can file an Unemployment Insurance (UI) claim

- For information on protecting workers from COVID-19, 
refer to the Cal/OSHA Guidance on Coronavirus
- Those experiencing a slowdown in their businesses or services may apply for the UI Work Sharing Program. This program allows employers to seek an alternative to layoffs — retaining their trained employees by reducing their hours and wages that can be partially offset with UI benefits
- Those planning a closure or major layoffs can get help through the 
Rapid Response program. Rapid Response teams will meet with you to discuss your needs, help avert potential layoffs, and provide immediate on-site services to assist workers facing job losses.
- Those experiencing a hardship may request up to a 60-day extension of time from the EDD to file their state payroll reports and/or deposit state payroll taxes without penalty or interest - EDD Taxpayer Assistance Center 888-745-3886

It is surreal to see the countries economy constricting and grinding to a halt. Stores are out of staple groceries by noon. Business entities shuttered. There is an just panic amonst people that is hard to explain. 

Be safe in your travels everyone. Take care of your families.

Had the media been fueled during the 2009 Swine Flu or H1N1 to the level today then thing would have likely been much the same.


The swine-flu pandemic of 2009 may have killed up to 203,000 people worldwide yet there was not the same reaction back then.

I was speaking to a person who is involved in federal law enforcement today who asked me who will benefit the most from the failure of the USA economy? As well as who, what nations, would benefit the most. 

He was adamant that this virus was genetically cultured in a lab, with the express purpose do exactly what we are doing. That being bring this country to an economic halt. 

At the current rate of the state of affairs, we will be $30,000,000,000,000.00 in debt as a nation by Labor Day. The debt service will be a trillion dollars a year to pay the interest alone!

I am not a conspiracy theorist kook. I am a kook, but not a conspiracy theorist one. (I have not had a television for going on four years)

But it makes sense. It really makes sense.
