What a time to live in! While fearing for your health and your future, money is the last thing you want to worry about. Unfortunately, many companies have been suddenly firing, laying off, or furloughing their employees.
According to CNN, in March, around 10 million Americans filed for unemployment benefits. Crazy! However, other companies have been seeing more demand and are therefore looking for immediate hire.
