The novel coronavirus has thrown the world into disarray, fear, commotion, uneasiness, strain, embarrassment, and xenophobia. Because of the coronavirus, all production, transportation, sales, and services were halted. When all production units and other organizations came to a halt, employers were unable to take their companies to the next level, and employees were unable to be adequately compensated. As a result, the majority of employees were laid off, with some receiving 1/3 of their previous wage and others receiving half. As a result, individuals began looking for new professions with lower pay, and some even returned to their native communities. The study looked at
how the corona affected the lives of lower-middle-income people in Coimbatore, how much they were paid, and what would happen if they were laid off. A total of 150 people were surveyed for the study, and the results were presented using percentage analysis. According to the findings, the
respondents were able to subsist thanks to government assistance and the day-to-day earnings from the jobs they obtained throughout the pandemic.
