Let’s cut to the chase here
My “day” job is in a warehouse, it’s not a glamorous job and it doesn’t pay great but it’s been deemed essential. I’m regularly within six feet of others and while we are all required to wear masks and have our temps taken I’m expected to show up for work and do so to pay the bills
My wife is a registered nurse. She works in a nursing home. She is regularly in contact with sick people and at least one co-worker that she had been in regular contact with has had the virus. She is tested weekly, and is expected to show up for work and she does to pay the bills.
My youngest son works in a supermarket in the deli/fish department. At work he is in regular close contact with others. Today he is out with a fever (his covid test came up negative ) and because of an earlier quarantine has no sick days left. Once the fever is gone he is expected to show up for work and will do so to pay the bills.
Which brings us to members of the House.
The members of the house make more than my wife, my son and myself combined. They have jobs of great power, prestige and posistion and every two years beg us not only for those jobs, but for money to spend to secure those jobs for another two years.
Yet despite this they are unwilling to take the same risk my wife, my son and myself take regularly to make our living after begging us to have those jobs.
I’m sorry if you want to be our leaders and you’re not willing to take the same risk as a warehouse worker, a dell worker or a nurse then resign your office and make room for someone who is.
