“We don’t have that privilege to shutdown,” said Becca, an employee of Information Central. “I have two kids at home, so I have to make money regardless.” This was said in the wake of Seattle Central College’s move to remote operations on March 7th, 2020. The following week, Governor Jay Inslee extended the date to April 24th, 2020. “I would rather die trying to attempt to make money for my kids then let my kids become homeless.” Becca joins a growing number of Washington residents who have lost their primary – and perhaps sole – source of income in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak.
