The unemployment numbers are nothing short of cataclysmic. 3.3 million Americans filed this week, shattering the previous one week record of 695,000 set in 1982.  The only possible silver lining is that at least a third of these jobs are expected to come back quickly after all this is over, but that still leaves over 2 million who might be out of work long-term, and almost none of these people have savings to wait this out even a month.
