I think we’re going to be busier. I think we’re going to have better focus. I think the Earth is going to be better, and overall the workers are going to have a safer and healthier environment to work in.

… I just can’t see any negatives right now. And that puts me at a different perspective, because I’m sure there are workers out there that are just wondering what’s going to happen to their future. Are they going to be able to make rent? And I can feel that, because I’ve had to suffer through that before. But right now, I’m busy, and everybody that I’m talking to, they’re busy, and some people are saying they’re busier than they ever thought they would be.
