"Parent company Levy Restaurants informed the state on June 24 that its Paddlefish and Terralina Crafted Italian eateries at Disney Springs have upcoming job terminations and hour reductions affecting a total of 271 workers.

A total of 143 jobs will be eliminated effective Aug. 1 at Paddlefish (87 job cuts) and Terralina (56 job cuts). The remaining 128 workers between the two restaurants will see their hours cut. The company told the state that while the job terminations are permanent, its employees have been invited to apply for future positions "when business levels return."

Executives with Levy Restaurants could not be reached for comment.

The letter provided to the state indicated that the layoffs are related to the pandemic's negative impact on local sports and other events, which typically make up a big piece of Levy's business."

Yep...

The world gets a “cold”...Orlando gets a mutant hybrid of sars/covid/bacterial meningitis

I saw fauci comment on “herd immunity” today and that isn’t so great either

If a vaccine is 70-75% effect and 1/3 of the population doesn’t take it...herd immunity can’t be achieved by definition.
Although, we would individually have the option to take the vaccine to protect ourselves and our families. The people who lose would be the small percentage of people medically unable to take a vaccine. The covidiots and anti-vaxers can be hoisted on their own petards.

The problem is that "doing what we are doing" has gotten us to this point.

Something needs to change. Better enforcement of rules? Rolling back to an earlier phase? Something new?

If shut down/masks/distancing has gotten us to this point and we need to try something new, maybe we should just do a blanket "open everything back up"! Haven't tried that yet. /s

Except a lot of YOU people...didn’t do that!!!

It’s been a rather long four months where I’m at and it was still rather “lax”

I’m shocked the casinos were held this long? We know that’s about money.

My take was - just like Disney - they weren’t in a hurry at all.


Did you hear why Murphy pulled the reigns back? I think I heard you scream from my front yard? Was that you? 😎

I'd bet my house that if Atlantic City casinos still paid the city taxes based on revenue then Murphy would have opened them already. But now they pay a set payment each year instead because it turns out that gambling revenue fluctuates with the economy. Who knew?

First, I hope everyone is doing well and stays healthy. Second, my responses are not directed at anyone in particular, just my point of view.

Wow. I was caught up when I started work this morning. I got off at 4pm (eastern) and just caught up again.

My county (Middlesex-NJ) does a spit test. I am not sure on the accuracy. But, no McDonald's or anything else to eat for an hour before. But if the restaurant manager was really smart, a sandwich board would be advertising mobile order, so drivers could pick up food after the test.

For those wondering if I have taken it, I have not. The spit test is by appointment only scheduled as only a government agency could. You have to call Fri for appointments on Tue. But next week, Fri is a holiday so you have to call Mon for appointments a week from Thursday. Then DMV (although we call it MVC long story) was scheduled to reopen, so they are doing it in a different parking lot. It is a mess. Anytime I have tried to make an appointment, "sorry" no more for whatever day. I have not felt the need to research further or put more effort into scheduling an appointment as I have no symptoms and have been working from home with very little outside contact since Thu March 12th.
