Unfortunately this partial two week country wide quarantine to get ahead is just not good enough.
I say partial, because there are companies that are going to stay open and neglect the danger of the virus.
Mine is one of them, this company has 150 employees and I am forced to work during this event.
If they close the doors, all of us have to apply for EI.

Because some greedy money bag piece of shit higher up is sitting at home getting his paycheck in a fortress of shit tickets, while we come in to the office during the pandemic and work while the country is essentially on quarantine. All it takes is one lazy fuck to not be sanitary and spread it to all of us and all of our families.

Said it in another post, I will be updating my resume and looking for work elsewhere.
People being forced to work to avoid going under for some ceo's pay is completely inexcusable.
My coworker friend already has a job elsewhere, but can't relocate because they have already quarantined their staff.
Hopefully two design engineers simultaneously quitting will cause enough damage to the engineering department and bottle neck manufacturing to cost the bag of bones some money.

He's like 90 years old, I hope he gets COVID-19. 🤬

To @Mnemonic's point, our company basically ceased all operations..and we don't get paid sick time, so we all were issued lay-off notices so we can apply for EI.
INCREDIBLY annoying.
No word on when/if we will be hired back.
So as far as I'm concerned - I'm looking for new work, but it's not like anyone is going to be hiring during this gongshow.

Interesting development. I'm a outside municipal worker (equipment operator). Anyone deemed non essential was told to go home at noon and stay there till further notice. Told to keep phone handy from 7 till 3 in case of call in. Report if there is snow.
Didn't see that coming.......
