    Was told Louisiana is losing $14 million per day with these low oil prices.

    The state and local governments are doing it to themselves... Why should the Feds bail them out? Itís getting ridiculous. States rights versus the feds....itís a battle that has been fought for a couple of hundred years. With some of these decisions the local and state government are making....Yep more federal government control. Hmmmm. Iíve seen people talk huge tariffs on products produced outside the USA. Doesnít sound much like free markets or freedom.

    Re: How is Covid-19 affecting your work?

    I will repost my question here since it is more appropriate. Has anyone heard about state or local police pulling people over when they cross state lines? Heard a rumor to that effect, but I think it’s BS. Why would they have that kind of manpower guarding a state line and risk unwarranted contact?

    People work across state lines.

    Yes, trucks carrying supplies cross state lines. Shut it all down. People should grow their own food at home and sew their own clothes with cotton grown in their own state....Nothing should cross state lines. We haven’t been able to keep illegals out of Mexico for how long, but we can control state borders? Come on folks.....Don’t believe everything you read, God gave you a brain for a reason. Use it!

    Re: How is Covid-19 affecting your work?

    Not sure how many of you on here have incomes directly tied to manufactured products, but I do, here is more news that we got yesterday. Our Apparatus manufacturer notified us yesterday that although they are an essential service, the decontamination process they use for handling the parts and materials has put a six week delay on all deliveries. Every extra 2-3 weeks this goes on adds another weeks delay to delivery times. A number of other manufacturers we use are having those same issues plus some of the raw materials they use are coming from Asia are being delayed for indefinite periods of time. Yes, Manufacturing is continuing, But we are starting to see indefinite delivery times and raw material shortages that have slowed things to a crawl. A sale is not a sale until you collect your money for it and not only has this severely slowed cash flow, some are even cancelling contracts out of fear of the unknown. This is pretty well industry wide and not the news we wanted to hear.

    These companies we deal with that are having raw material shortages are telling us unless materials become available they may begin layoffs and furloughs. The demand is there for their product, they just do not have anything for their people to work with leading to idle time for a lot of employees.

    I am not attempting to be a fearmonger, I have been one to question some of the draconian measures that have been taken and I still am. Just confirming what all of you probably know, it is starting to domino, just hope we figure out how to jerk some of those dominoes out of the cascade.

    On our local levels, most property assessments have already been paid for the year, but we will start seeing the true numbers on March sales tax collections pretty soon.

    How's the stainless steel supply chain? Expecting a couple of orders for our water filtration units soon. Most of our machine is stainless steel...and some PVC pipe. This sucks. It's bad enough when we have a virus crisis but when it starts impacting MY business, this is really serious!

    Our Aluminum and SS seem to be OK at the moment as we did not really import much, if any at all. Most all of our supply is domestic and have not heard of a real slow down on it, just the whole process of getting it to your location seems to have slowed some. With employee distancing and deliveries being handled much differently all those extra steps and the actual lack of human interaction is slowing things down.

    China iron/steel used in the oilfield for pipe was found to be way inferior to most on the planet. They added things like boron that weakened it immensely. It was a joke but cheep. Most all in the industry quit using it.

    We didn't do the hoarding thing, but we did stock up on food- as much as possible with empty shelves. My husband is still working in an office by himself thankfully. I'm not afraid, but my son with Down syndrome may not fair as well as many would if he got this. I'm not willing to take the chance. We have used Walmart Online, and I did make a trip to our Sam's yesterday. I have gone a couple of times where there were lots of people and didn't end up going in- we were lucky yesterday and stocked up again. I have also ordered food from Amazon- snacks for the kids and things like that. We are really trying to make sure Carson stays healthy. We have also done take out a few times at the drive thru.

    I'm of the opinion that --in this particular case-- since the Feds shut all the businesses down, they should reimburse the state and local governments for their tax revenue losses from those businesses, if possible.
