I’ve got to say this about the Covid Lockdown
It has to be said. Am I the only one livid with regard to why those deemed “essential workers/industries” who worked through the pandemic did not receive anything remotely corresponding to the $600 and now 300 or so dollar weekly stimulus payments that those on unemployment received? I am surely not blaming the unemployed or people/positions laid off; if I was in their shoes I would be doing the same thing because the government shut those industries down to begin with. My mother and I both work in a nursing home and our take home was slightly less than what the government had been giving people freely for about 4 months.
I am furious that the government decided that those it deemed “essential workers/positions” got nothing while putting themselves at risk while those it laid off were making thousands of dollars over the course of the pandemic; many of us are making less money working 40 hours than those on unemployment stimulus alone.
What is going on here? What’s the deal and why is nobody talking about this anywhere?
