Abstract

In the face of the COVID19 crisis, some industries have seen their markets disappear leading them to lay-off large fractions of their workforce. Other industries find that the demand for their services has expanded sharply and are struggling to keep up. At the same time, the ability to work is hampered by social distancing, the closing of schools and day cares, and the need to especially protect those with underlying conditions. The result is that some industries will likely face shortages in the coming weeks and months, even while there is mass unemployment from others.
