davidphogan: My roommate works at Kroger, but I own Kroger stock. I'm conflicted. I want my dividends, but I want him to live, too. What do?


I don't see how you could even be contemplating this question.

You can always get another roommate.

NeoCortex42: This was obvious from the start.  As soon as the emergency either stops or becomes normalized, people will go back to treating grocery workers like crap. This is why all the praise of them in the beginning felt hollow to me. If people really valued these workers, they'd support permanent improvements to their pay and benefits and not temporary tokens of gratitude.


Applause draws attention to the clapper, and vanishes pleasingly into the air when they're done drawing attention to how charitable they are.

Money sets up like expectations they'll actually be treated like they're worth something. First it's a living wage, then it's paid sick leave, then they'll expect health care and housing and before you know it you're singing the Internationale in a gulag under the hammer and sickle.

Better to just clap nicely and give them a sticker that says "HERO" on it, so everyone knows that they're bravely volunteering to die for your stonks and that you appreciate the sacrifice very very much.

If he were a true friend, he wouldn't dream of letting his petty concerns like blood oxygen saturation interfere with your God-given right to enjoy the profits of his labour.

It's time.

funny how we have gotten used to calling anybody just doing their F'ing job a 'hero'. Firefighters are heros. Grocery baggers are not.

It's not even a dangerous job in Corona times. You don't see spurts of infections among workers because they are forced to use common sense protections.

One thing you can be sure of, if the infection rate was even remotely approaching the national; rate the powerful grocery worker unions (and they are second only to the Teamsters in political power) would be screaming bloody murder.

It's worked for our military. If they hadn't had so many problem readjusting to society, we never would have had to think about them again.
