Hey UE users. I am curious, how many of you have been laid off? I currently am one of two inventory managers for 5 gas stations owned by a family company. Thus due to covid-19 they are having to lay off workers and close a couple stores. So not only are we a small town with a small community, but where I work is also essential services for this town. Being that the company isn't part of any franchise, IE Exxon, Shell, Speedway, ect, we are technically at risk of full closures. My boss told me today about some of the layoffs and said I would be one. I am still promised a job once the world is able to open back up once there is a decrease in covid. I am one of my bosses right hand men, but he can't afford me while keeping the business afloat. My wife suffers from multiple sclerosis with no treatments...mostly due to the fact most treatments are experimental and well, we just can't financially pay for them. I also have two teenage girls which, my oldest was trying to make us take more of her money from work to pay for things. My child should not be offering money she should be saving for college because of a virus. granted how sweet they both are, I am just wondering if anyone knows any companies doing remote jobs due to this pandemic? I have played with UE a lot, but have never used it at a career level. With everything I have going on I don't even have time to build something of my own. Although...I do have a project I'm going to try to build to make some income with an old computer that barely runs UE, but I was hoping this covid thing may be a foot in the door somewhere. I would also be happy just to get a game of my own out, but I feel like by the time covid goes away I would only be partially through the build, and then left aside to get some normality back to life.
Anyway sorry about the panicky feel to the post, but I needed to sort of vent also. Any advice? I don't want to sound like I'm looking for handouts either, I just want to give hard work and get happy results. Thanks guys! Stay safe.
