What do all these protestors do for a living? I don’t know anyone in my friend group who can afford to take off time from work or risk getting COVID-19

Do you know any folks who are protesting? Most of my friends who are either have become unemployed or are passionate enough to be taking time off work. I’ll be out there this weekend. It’s time for those of use who are comfortable to stand with those who have been oppressed for decades.

Also, college students just finished their (online) semester and most haven’t started internships, so they’re in a perfect in-between period to dedicate their time and energy towards helping the cause

Seeking advice on the private schools. I have a blue ribbon catholic school and a 7 rated public school for my six year old to start grade 1. The private school is not expensive (5K a year) but I’m wondering if it is worth it to move to a public school as the schools May be delayed due to COVID19.

So, a spot I made (concept to completion) got shelved due to COVID forcing the client’s marketing plan to change. During that time, my partner and I were laid off. Recently, the spot aired, but the agency credits a different team for the work – me, my parter, and my CDs aren’t listed. Do I ask the agency to correct it? Just throw it in my book with explanation? Just take the L and chalk it up to that being how the industry is?
