A shout out to all the supermarket workers.

Please join me in a big cheer for all the folks who are manning the checkouts and stocking the supermarket shelves for keeping food (and toilet paper) distribution going.  These people are going out every day and facing 100’s of people who might well be carrying the virus; a few of whom are exhibiting seriously horrible behaviors as well.

Normally these are people who we regard as lowly unskilled workers; whose managers no doubt tell them often that they are unimportant, easily replaceable and lucky to be paid properly.

I was thrilled to hear the ABC describe them this morning as essential services workers and I hope when they are handing out medals for courage in the face of the virus, they give some to the supermarket workers too.
