To be fair subby, the covid is 100% organic and locally sourced, so...

Sick people hide being sick so they can get hours.  They need hours to pay bills, eat, and not be homeless.

Man, if only someone had come up with an idea for everyone getting a baseline pay, and your job's pay would be gravy.

Like some kind of... Basic income.  But, for everyone.  Like some kind of universal concept...

Then people could quarantine without worrying about losing their house and car... or, you know, starving to death.

But then people might be able to quit shiatty jobs with abusive bosses without worrying about ending up homeless and/or dead! And businesses might have to actually start punishing shiatty bosses for scaring away all the workers. I bet you want some kind of universal health care and a strong social safety net too, you farking Communist.

We, comrade.But uh, yeah... more like Capitalism Mk2: Electric Boogaloo.

A government that protects its Citizens from the overreaching/overcontrolling Corporations.  You know, the opposite of what is happening now.  Just... flip it over.  Instead of Trickle "Down" we have now (Giving gold coins to Smaug) - We try trickle up.  Give broke people money, and they'll spend it... then tax the super rich... which they won't even feel a pinch out of... Like Robin Hood.  The "tax" the poor pay is called fueling the economy with bills, rent/mortgage, and consuming... Which trickles up to the corporate overlords anyway.

But, yeah... getting sick shouldn't put you into permanent debt, and fear of going to the hospital shouldn't be a thing...  So, yeah... Health care too.  Fark it, make college accessible again.  You know, like a first world country.

If only Whole Foods unionized instead of being corporate puppets that would be taken care of.

Also the UBI fails because it would replace Unemployment and other programs.

I'm in Santa Fe. The mention of H&M having a positive case makes me wonder if that's related to a weird experience I had there a couple weeks ago -- I was in the store in the afternoon, well before closing time. Place is fairly busy for a shop in Santa Fe during a pandemic. While I'm looking for the specific dress I was there to buy, suddenly an employee announces that everyone has to go, no checkouts or excuses to linger, the store is closing immediately and he doesn't know why. I had once been in a London tube station when a bomb threat was received, and it felt similar to that -- although the stores on either side of H&M remained open. Perhaps this was the moment it was discovered that an employee had tested positive?

How is that a fail?  If UBI is in place, unemployment and foodstamps aren't necessary anymore.  It's more of a combination and expansion than a replacement.

Give money to the people that need it, and it will *Still* end up in the hands of the wealthy, it will at least have gone through the economy first, and helped the people that need it...

Fail, because if many dependent people don't have the life (money handling) skills to make their own financial decisions.  If you institute UBI, there will be a not insignificant portion of the public that will still need food and housing assistance.

fark that.  Their workers live in tiny apartments with barely any access to natural open spaces.  I only catch ethically raised free range covid.

It's not only that.  A lot of jobsworths would be out of jobs, no longer needed as petty tyrants deciding who gets which benefits.  That will never be acceptable, so UBI would be an add-on to existing welfare programs, both defeating the purpose and making it unaffordable.

Yep.  When OSHA shows up uninvited for any reason, everything stops, all work must immediately cease, and non-employees have to leave at once.

There's an old running joke in New Mexico:

Q: How do you become a millionaire in Santa Fe?
A: Move there with $2M.

The poor in Santa Fe are very poor, the rich are very rich. Not much middle class to speak of in SF proper.
