Nearly half of Americans have seen their income decline during the coronavirus pandemic, which dragged the nation's economy into the worst downturn since the Great Depression.

That's according to a new study published Thursday by Bankrate.com, which found that 49 percent of U.S. adults have experienced a negative impact on their income as a result of the crisis, most frequently through layoffs, furloughs or a reduction in hours.

Don’t worry though, a huge portion of the DC area is maintaining their salary while ‘working’ from home. They can’t understand why anyone wants to open back up.
