It's so great #45 dismantled OSHA so that the government couldn't ensure workplace safety during a pandemic.  Libertarianism in action folks!  Who knew that once we decriminalized hazardous workplace practices that our superiors would create unsafe workplaces to eek out a small increase in profit?
These companies need to be sued into liquidation.  Their actions likely murdered hundreds of not thousands of people.

Here in GA, we just post signs warning people that enter our buildings that they waive all liability by choosing to enter. Don't have to hire anyone new for a new corporate level position.  Just need to hire the low levels that keep dropping dead.

No, the managers gambled on how many would turn up as positives. Even Rachel Maddow has stretched this into "how many died," something other than the (regrettable) truth.

And they can hire just about any doctor to take over the role. My physician S.O. contemplated taking such position as it had a maximum of 4 hours a week and a pay rate of $200 an hour at a plasma donation facility. Easy $50 or so grand a year.

Although I told him it would be more lucrative to open a medical spa, write the orders and delegate nurses to do the rest.

/he kinda already does this as a small county coroner

Also I should point out that an equipment company hired my ex's dad-a chiropractor-as their chief medical officer. I had to facepalm that.
