Premium lice company joins the initiative to decrease New York State unemployment rates.
December 8. 2020 – Providers of lice removal treatment Lice Troopers will expand their in-home treatment services to major metropolitan areas in New York, creating hundreds of jobs and doing their part to decrease the state’s currently devastating unemployment rate. Though we lost revenue in these unprecedented times, we were able to double down as we came into the pandemic strong due to a significant round of funding in 2020. Moreover, our technological system initiatives and marketing efforts allowed for our loss to be far less than other lice businesses.
The pandemic has impacted New York most of all, especially New York City and Upstate New York. The New York Federal Reserve reports that, while the US has experienced an 8% gap in job loss compared to pre-pandemic times, Upstate New York has experienced an 11% gap and Downstate New York has dealt with a whopping 14% fewer jobs. COVID-19 has hit us harder than any economic crisis since the 1970s.
Consider that unemployment has dropped 19% overall compared to the Great Recession in which it only dropped 4% in New York State. Business leaders have forecasted further improvement, and Lice Troopers takes an active role in contributing to this much needed economic boost.
Perhaps the pandemic didn’t affect your job, but in this case, the financial loss of individuals has become the financial loss for the state as a whole. Lice Troopers aims to tackle this from the bottom-up, providing those who’ve lost their jobs with the opportunity for professional careers. In each service area, we’ll hire various technicians as well as train and certify them. But we also do this for our clients—the frustrated parents who call us overwhelmed with their children’s lice and unsure of what to do. With many working from home, whole families are getting infected with no clinic nearby or viable solutions.
Lice Troopers will soon service some major metropolitan areas with in-home lice removal treatments:
Already providing safe and effective lice treatments out of their clinics, Lice Troopers has decided to amplify the reach of its in-home treatment services to areas beyond the cities in which their clinics lie. We’ve enacted this expansion because frantic parents continuously call us, stressed about their children’s lice and unsure of what to do next.
Between creating new jobs and building optimal systems for other lice businesses, Lice Troopers leads the industry in growth and efficiency.
Services Lice Troopers is rolling out to these new areas:
In-home lice removal treatments provided in these service areas are inherently safer as you need not leave your home to receive treatment. But we still act with additional caution, as we remain embedded in a worldwide pandemic. We’ve enlisted preventative measures in accordance with CDC guidelines.
