What depression?

What is appropriate, pandemic v. depression? Why is this not turning into a depression? We allegedly have job growth. But, people can't pay their bills. People are able to work from home, is that the difference? What measures a depression? I went through all the recessions barely touched, either because I trained myself to do with less, or because I just had a good job. I am thinking of returning to work, but Delta scares me silly. So, after I get my shot, I'll decide. Would you go to Texas to work for those stupid aholes, or set aside misgivings in order to help and also, to be sure, make a buck? In case things get worse? Would that make you a hypocrite? I am a firm believer in masking. Would you have that written into your contract, in case you ran into a situation where they said you couldn't? "It's in my contract." I believe that you can still get sick with Delta. Would it be worth it? What do you think about making money in the middle of all this? Do you think that it is inevitable that we are all going to get some form of Covid, no matter what we do?

1. Yes, it's inevitable that we'll all be exposed to covid at some point

Unless we want to mask and distance forever (not viable for most normal people). I'm just trusting in the vaccine to protect me from bad symptoms if I do get a breakthrough case. Covid is gonna be another common cold virus after a few decades with tons of variants. Everyone will have either died if they're highly susceptible to it, or developed a long lasting resistance after multiple exposures. The virus itself will probably be with humanity till the end much like all the cold variants.
