As I write this editorial, there is some semblance of normalcy returning to parts of the community in the wake of the COVID19 pandemic. Some states have schools going back in phased returns, restrictions on movements are being eased, and some businesses have begun making plans to open their doors again. But travel, both interstate and international, is still not on the table.
There are parts of the economy that have been shattered by the pandemic while others have been able to trade through as best they can. And some have even managed to thrive. Speaking to BAE Systems Australia managing Director Gabby Costigan this week, her business took on roughly 100 new people each month since the start of year. The Hunter program alone aims to have 1,200 people in it by the end of 2020.
