There is no doubt the Pandemic impacted and disrupted almost every single part of our lives, but one of the most obviously hardest hit industries was the Hospitality sector. 👩‍🍳 🍽 ☕️ 🍻 👨‍🍳 🛎

It was a rollercoaster🎢 of openings and closings, full of lots of uncertainty about what was safe or not - and when. Not to mention the budgets and wages that were already stretched so thin - now pushed to the brink. 💸 It felt like every single day was hard for a while.

But now we seem to be turning some kind of corner, and it’s up to us to build this brand new world the way we want it to be. So whats the new normal for summertime dining and work in the Service Industry? ☀️ 🍹

What are the ways you’ve noticed restaurants or bars changing now that we are two years into the pandemic?? Have there been any positive impacts you’ve noticed from the pandemic at all?? Is it starting to get easier working in restaurants now that it’s 2022 vs 2020?? Whats next for **Hospitality?? 🍽

I'm not sure if anything changed for the better from the pandemic. It seems like there is more fraud, more people wanting handouts instead of actually earning their way. Every place I go seems to have Gratuity as a part of the process. People got lazier with shopping and delivery options.

To be ready at all times! Ready for what?! For CHANGE! This pandemic that we are trying to recover from took us all for a surprise. We were not expecting Covid-19 to hit us like it did. We didn't think that our jobs would be affected, the house market would be affected, or the gas prices to be as high as they are now. This experience teaches us all a lesson; to always be ready for change. I am now making better financial decisions, putting a little money away for a rainy day, I'm being riskier with my career because "you only live once" right?! I'm taking the remote/work from home approach to make a living which was the best decision I've made so far during this pandemic. I've also learned how to communicate more effectively being able to express myself. I've had a lot of days where I've felt overwhelmed, and my anxiety got the best of me. I know I'm not alone. :)

Remember you are not alone and never be afraid to ask for help! Have a good day. #advice #motivation #inspiration #pandemic

They de-activated your card @Mohamed Hamadou . Do you know if it's an IDMe verification issue or was someone trying to access your account fraudulently? Have you had any success following up with the unemployment agency directly?

You can find helpful resolution tips and strategy options on our Unemployment Resource Center. Take a quick look and see what other members have to share about similar experiences.

Hey @Marcus Kidd , the Ohio department of labor is still showing a record number of new claims and appeals but fraud seems to be the biggest concern right now is, More than half of Ohio’s Pandemic Unemployment Assistance claims have been flagged for fraud.

Claims that do not pass the automatic filing process default into manual processing which takes more time to resolve. Stay updated on your claim via the online status check tool, see https://pua.unemployment.ohio.gov

@Roxana Salgado we've heard a lot of confusion about #unemployment - but I encourage you to keep your personal records confidential. Especially as it pertains to unemployment payments. When you're ready, I'd also encourage you to fill out your bio and work experience on your profile - the more we know about what you're looking for, the better the community can help with your job hunt. Hope this is helpful!
