Hope this works out for them, but there's an awful lot of people out of work just now who might be willing to scab.

Rent strikes are going to kick off in the next 2 days, too.

Would you take a job where you are put at unnecessary risk? I'm with the strikers. Give them dignity and PPE.

It's appalling how many fast food workers aren't even being given gloves for when they take money and cards

Great.  What am I supposed to do sitting here in the dark all hungry and chaffed?

If I was out of work with the mortgage due and mouths to feed and no savings and nothing in the pantry and other bills to pay....I dunno. Hard to say, since i'm not in that position.  But I can recognize that there are those that will be desperate enough. I don't know if there will be enough to break a strike. Hopefully not, but it's not something I would count on.

I was gonna place an Instacart order today but I guess not. More power to them.

I've driven away from several restaurants recently because the employees were not wearing gloves.

Well, onboarding with a massive corporation that won't include you in payroll until the end of April isn't going to help if you're hungry now. You're better off just robbing someone. This is Amurca.

I'm starting to feel like the 7 Seals are going to crack open.

Their demands sadly might not be realistic. I know a hospital that keeps surgical masks locked up with the pain pills and another that had their hand sanitizer dispensers stolen. Sanitizer is hard but happily not impossible. Gloves are also a tight supply.

If a hospital is having a hard time with these you probably going to have to wash your hands regularly and just be glad you are not going to be sitting around breathing in Covid-19 like doctors and RNs.

My takeaway is that they're demanding items that are in severe short supply and needed more by the front line medical people.

I'm not sure that's going to work out for them.

So, it's a small order of lube.

You might want to read Matthew 24 first. This is but a prelude, a warning, a foreshadowing of things to come. Life is precious and God likes to let the natural evils that He usually holds back, slip out from time to time as a reminder to good and evil people alike that our lives could always be far worse and we could always do better.

The Seven Seals are for the time when people stop caring entirely and reminders are no longer enough, then it will be time for justice and payback to a world full of murderous, bloodthirsty monsters the likes of which we have never seen before.

You, sir, are correct. I'm kind of rusty on some biblical verses.

On the other hand, the black plague could be this.  ;)

Well sure - potato chips are in short supply.  Worse, if you get those Olestra chips, you end up needing extra TP, too!

Unless employers hand out sanitizing gel to use after each transaction, all the gloves do is transfer microbes from one customer to another.
