More than half of American jobs are at risk because of coronavirus
New York (CNN Business)A week ago, Darrin Dixon wasn't all that concerned about the coronavirus.
Now he's losing sleep over the prospect that the virus could cost him his food truck and catering business, which provides three jobs, including his own.
Sales at Dixon's food truck, KC Cajun, plunged this week as businesses in downtown Kansas City, Missouri, where he's based, have shifted to working from home. His catering business is having cancellations like he's never seen before.
"I know I'm stressed. I've had sleepless night. It's just scary because we don't know what we're going to do," said Dixon.
His situation is a harbinger of the problems facing the US economy from the coronavirus, which could be far deeper and more widespread than they initially appeared.
