We are still here, under quarantine. Nothing has changed and - on top of this news - White House task force officials have announced in press briefings that we are not yet out of the woods and best case scenarios have between 100,000 to 240,000 potential United States deaths in the coming weeks.
This figure is staggering. To support non-essential workers' lack of income, the federal government purposed a stimulus package to offer $1,200 to adults and $500 for dependent children under the age of 16. This sounds good to many, but what happens to all of the dependent children and adults that don't fit into either one of those brackets? College students and high school seniors?
They are out of luck.
My next article for QU Journalism will be surrounding this. The $2 trillion plan only adds to the national debt, which current college students and high-school seniors will be paying off until the day that they die. Why, then, are they excluded from having support now? I will aim to answer this in my article in the upcoming weeks.
Amongst this, I am still doing research for the company (we've changed the name!) and planning out how practical price points are how long the program will stretch out for. My initial plan was six months. If this is something that you, the reader, would be interested - please fill out the survey! I will include more details as more research is conducted. I will keep you guys updated. :)
