Since early April, Chad Mersino’s spent his days walking his dog, watering plants and watching “a whole lot of Netflix.”

Between leisure activities and increased household duties, Mersino said he’s kept busy applying for about 10 jobs a week since April, when he was laid off from his job at Cintas, a uniform and professional attire vendor, due to economic ramifications of COVID-19. He’d worked there for 19 years.
