Remember when every TV pundit suddenly realized nurses, bus drivers, postmen, delivery people and janitors were "essential workers"?

Now, the same imbeciles are noticing that cooks, servers, truck drivers and others are also "essential workers". And that life without restaurants or opened shops really suck.

Soon, the very same idiots may well realize that moving entire industries to China and having just-in-time supply chains because $PROFITS is not such a good idea.

Of course, the truth is: all workers are "essential". They supply all the work, including the back-breaking kind.

The CEOs pocket the profits. And then they complain about not finding enough compliant workers and justify moving everything to a dictatorship.

Tax the rich. Raise the minimum wage.

@ParadeGrotesque I may be a bit pessimistic, but I think that your prediction may be a bit optimistic.
