@jorge Yup, there's a hiring freeze in a lot of places and nobody knows what's going on because now, nobody can hire anybody legally, unless they have $ Forever money to do it with
I wouldn't say it's "sad"
It's irresponsible and it's having exactly the opposite of its intended effect because they provided $0 more funding
