3. Firms don't hire for the present, they hire for the future.

You realize that the future could be WORSE than today, right?

You realize that it could be, and will likely be, better, right?

And we're talking about the study linked in the original post, which said we may have reached a bottoming out. Only place to go is up.

EXPLAIN why it's more likely to be better. I am very curious as to why people think we "can only go up" from here. Is it because we have always recovered relatively quickly from recessions in the past? This alone doesn't seem like a great explanation considering the unprecedented nature of this economic downturn. The study said we may have reached a bottom, but I don't understand how this translates into "we're all good from here on out!"

OP linked a study that was what this thread was about.

Study says we may have reached a bottoming out.

If we're talking about the study, then based on that opinion in the study, things are likely to get better.
