The Wall Street Journal just came out with an article that reported a record of 6.6 million people who sought unemployment benefits last week. These are people who unexpectedly lost their jobs due to the pandemic. I feel like after this all settles down, there should be some kind of policy to protect those types of people to make sure that they do not lose their jobs during the next crisis. I realize that this is easier said than done, however, the current situation has proven that not only have we been unprepared for this kind of crisis in the workplace, but also in other sectors like the healthcare system in the United States. Rather than working to fix things, I think that once this is all over, we need to start making preemptive plans for the future.

Something in this piece that caught my attention was the comment about travel between different countries. While the travel bans do make sense and I do not condemn them, it just makes me wonder what the aftermath will be on the global economic scale, especially for countries that rely heavily on tourism. On a more local level, one of the biggest sectors in the Alaskan economy is tourism and with the absence of tourists and the already unstable Alaskan economy, this kind of crisis makes me especially worried and wary of the future.
