Re: "weeks after it slowed hiring in the US"
But where do fare paying customers come from if nobody employs people? The job of a company is exactly to exploy people, so they can be consumers as well as employees. It's an "I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine." scenario, and whilst many firms don't see themselves as being obliged to take part, there will be a breaking point. People then shout 'Universal Basic Income' as a solution, but large firms like to not pay tax, so where is that money coming from. Society collapses if there are no jobs.
