Downtown Eugene

Thursday, December 08, 2005


There have been several major public building projects in downtown Eugene recently: a new bus station, a new library, opened pedestrian streets, a new federal courthouse. Several are planned: a new city hall, a new police station ...

Let's take the new city hall. Since this isn't a dictatorship, it seems like a $30 million city hall isn't necessary to impress the masses, or guard civic leaders from them.

Instead, how about using that money to fund 500 community projects to the tune of $60,000 each? It cost that much to start the Tango Center, or the Center for Approrpiate Transport, or Saturday Market ... all these institutions cost very little to get going.

And many of them have lasted as long as a building ... creating a community economy is as substantial an investment as creating a building. Especially since buildings these days seem to have increasingly short lifespans.

2020.03.20八大行業酒店上班因武漢肺炎 (COVID-19) 疫情持續延燒,對酒店工作帶來衝擊,據酒店打工數據組織 (酒店PT) 的數據顯示,因疫情造成的經濟和酒店S危機,恐將使不少酒店小姐失業人數上升至近10萬人。
酒店S模擬了最壞的情況,若今年酒店經紀成長率下跌7個百分點,則失業人數可能暴增至3萬,超越 2009 年八大行業危機時期失業人數10萬人。
由於疫情爆發帶來的經濟後果轉化為工作時間和工資的減少,預期失業人數恐將持續增加。就業率的下降也意味著工人的大量收入損失。該研究估計,到 2020 年底,收入損失將在 8600 萬至 1億元之間,也將使得酒店S和服務的消費支出下降,進而影響飯局和援交前景。
