My company got the Payroll protection loan, so our temporary 15% pay cuts were postponed for a month or two. The Architectural Billings Index was down like 40% in March and expected to be worse in April, so we’ll likely see pretty tough times by end of summer in the AEC market

I am starting to get pretty concerned about Kansas State.

Being pretty concerned about Kansas State would not be an overreaction to say the least.

Hotel industry is absolutely mumped right now but for some reason, my company keeps paying me and has only done paycuts.  I expect that to change pretty soon.

No, and if anything, power plants seem to be even busier/require more attention than ever, for somewhat obvious reasons.

We were told we'd be paid in full through June six weeks ago. Three weeks ago we were told our jobs were safe, but there would likely be a hiring freeze and no raises this year. Two weeks ago we we were told furloughs could be a legit possibility. Most likely in the form of a few days a month and those with higher salaries being furloughed more days than those earning less. First staff meeting in a couple weeks tomorrow so who knows what we'll hear.

Staff meeting just finished. The number one priority is to protect jobs. Targeting a 10% spending cut.

Literally, figuratively or a combination of both?

Howso? What do you think the layoff/cancellation/whatever situation will unfold? What are the rumors or possibilities being discussed? Need reports from boots on the ground/ITK types.

I am not very confident about the fall semester which would make all of these cuts much worse.

The Brownback years were horrible for their finances so they were already in a pretty tough position when this hit.

We finally got a tentative date when we will have some people start returning to the office. It will be in a phased approach. Our revenue is still down but looks like we probably won’t lose anybody.

I have a more corporate position and am with a company that franchises far more than manages properties.  It has saved a lot of people in our company for the time being.  Pretty much all my friends/former coworkers at properties are gone.

I'm pretty pessimistic about the rebound of hospitality.  I hope those I know who are mostly in sales can get back in late summer and start the rebound.

Hearing ten week furloughs for people. Health insurance covered for one month. Something like a $30 million cut.

It's going to be challenging for sure.  I know bigger convention destinations, Vegas in particular, are worried that they will never fully recover to what they were.  The thought is that even the biggest conventions will be 20% smaller.  Some people aren't going to feel comfortable travelling for a long time.  A lot of companies aren't going to have the same budgets to put people on the road once it's safe again and some are figuring out that they can do some of the same things remotely.

China hotel numbers came back to about 70% of where they were after 3 months, which would put us on track for mid-June if we discount a billion other variables.

We don't have any dates until work travel will be approved.  I think it will be less too because of the capability of video conferencing and stuff.  We have some people that used to travel all of the time, will be a lot less I think.
