  • Many Millennials are also out of work or struggle with low salaries, limited homeownership, and few investments.

Some Good News

  • Banksy works from home, the New York Times releases its "52 Places Virtually" list, and some other short yet heartwarming reads.
  • Brands that invoke nostalgia such as Playstation, Disney, Netflix, and even Amazon are doing well, while other brands such as Macy's and Costco are seeing a slight decline in previously pretty solid popularity.
  • Platforms such as OnlyFans and Patreon are seeing spikes in users as people pivot to earn money as unemployment rises.
  • Teachers are engaging with other forms of virtual learning like video games to mix up the virtual classroom setting.
  • The Supreme Court complains that remote work has made lawyers more relaxed with how they present themselves in court.
  • Startups are asking workers to take voluntary pay cuts in exchange for more equity.
  • New programs like thermal cameras are being used to combat Covid-19 in the short-term but may have negative long-term effects.

A Pandemic Pivot

  • Changes were made in leadership, roles, and other key company features to allow for this transition.
