News of Qantas job losses hit this bureau’s desk today. It’s a sad event especially for the 6,000 people and their families that it effects. On top of that is another 15,000 who have been temporarily stood down.
This effect of little travel and tourism has had the positive effect of tourist locations no longer being crowded. While still economically devastating, it has become nice for locals to enjoy their respective tourist sites with far lower crowds.
Nice as that is, it can’t last. Just as the clear skies in places like India will soon clog up with smog, the tourists are sure to return. Kind of annoying and loud, but needed.
