Anybody who is supporting President Trump because they say he did a good job with the economy, just doesn’t know what they’re talking about. He has not done one thing right concerning the economy since the pandemic started back I March. I know because since March 15 of this year my grand total of income for the travel agency has been about $2500 and $2000 f that was for commission earned prior to the start of the pandemic. He has done nothing to help the public regain confidence in using the vast opportunities of the hospitality industry. Just saying we have to open up the economy without creating an atmosphere of confidence is criminal. So while restaurants might be open, many people are still afraid to eat in them. While airplanes are flying not many people are flying. Air travel is down70% as I write this. Hotel occupancy as well is way down. People are not moving around the country. Ours government has done nothing to deal with the public health measures that would help restore confidence in doing the basic leisure things we like to do. Just opening up with no plan just hasn’t worked.
It’s just so sad. Sad because after forty years of having a office to go to whether a law office or a travel agency, we’re closing our travel agency office. We are moving it home to our apartment and hope maybe one day to open an office again. Right now, no one is visiting offices and right now no one wants to travel. So when it starts up again, we will do it by phone, not in person. We shall se how it goes. But right now it’s that old saying, will the last one to leave please turn out the lights.
