Let's take all the people who can't seem to stay indoors, and volunteer them to work in grocery stores - and we can let grocery store workers who have been trapped in the greatest disgusting con - I've seen in this country in my day - go home and collect paid leave or unemployment?
I hope one day the world will reach a point where it will look back on this moment like we look back on the Titanic loading the rich into their lifeboats - how we threw blue collar workers who had been marginalized for so long on the land mine and walked over their bodies like they somehow owed it to us. Especially without forcing new OSHA protections and enforcement along with benefits, (um life insurance for their kids?) hazard pay, and choice if they aren't ok with the risk. It's truly barbaric to me.
Every grocery store should be required by mandate to run them as drive through or pick up - drop off a list at the window - come back in an hour. Not only are the stores a hot bed of infection for workers but it's turning into the main place where people will become infected; It's beyond stupid.
