Layoffs. Consolidations. Tumbling stock prices. When will the madness end?
According to industry analysts, the dot-com shakeout is going to get much
worse before it gets better -- and it won't be getting better anytime soon.
More shutdowns and layoffs lie in wait for the online world.

"If you look at venture capital funding for e-commerce companies, the
second and third rounds of financing really tapered off for [the]
third/fourth quarters of 2000," Steve Butler, business analyst for
eMarketer, told the E-Commerce Times. "This leaves dot-coms with
very little cash to last on a month-to-month basis. The majority
will go bankrupt or consolidate by the middle or end of this year."

Nearly all my peers have moved to medium sized corporations. The pay is lower and the dot.com incentives are't there. BUT we now work 8 hour days, 5 days a week.

My former stock options are lining for the catbox.

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
