Lead builder is worried about the jobs he has in flight. Some people are "sure, we'll help each other out" and others are starting to get antsy about paying, which then makes it hard for him to pay his subbies.
I told him not to worry about us. We'll pay promptly, and if he wants to invoice for smaller chunks of work, that's fine too. We can keep the money flowing to him, and from him to others.
I worry that there are a lot of people in damaged houses that won't be able to get their stuff repaired because the system seizes up. If the parts manufacturers and disties get shut, where do the trades get their materials from?
