I'm not sure that the first month was overreach, there is real science behind the concept of "flattening thr curve". Once that effort succeeded and the threat of exceeding hospital capacity passed, the orginal "sell" of shutting down the economy was no longer valid.

Expect many more companies to take similar actions soon. As PPP expires, (which artificially incentized employers to maintain unused labor) and revenues don't quickly return, it's the only option remaining.

I thought today's (fake) job report was good news.

So much for Trump's V-shaped recovery.
