Due to a loss in revenue, Airbnb will be laying off 25% of its workforce, which is about 1,900 employees. Situations like this are clearly not unique to Airbnb. Early last week it was reported that over 30 million Americans filed for unemployment within five weeks. Those are numbers that have never been seen before in history. I'm not sure what unemployment numbers are for this week, but they're probably up by a few million at least.

Stay safe and have a good one,
