Virus Cases Rise, but Hazard Pay for Retail Workers Doesn’t
"The back of our chat about Starbucks, raising their wages for baristas. The headline is Virus cases rise, but hazard pay for retail workers doesn't on. This specifically calls out Amazon and Wal Mart, both of which had boosted wages initially, but it's since pulled those raises back for saying, Look. Amazon, you reported, you know quarterly profits that were up 200% but are not paying your workers anymore. Since June. Wal Mart also had a big bump in quarterly sales in their most recent earnings quarter that they reported on Tuesday. They had paid some cash bonuses back earlier this year, but also has not done anything to raise wages here. And the question of this article is asking is, Is it fair for these companies to be raking in not record, but significant, significantly higher profits than earlier in this year will not paying their workers more given the safety risks there undertaken. I mean, I I'm not again to fairness. That's certainly legal. I think it's kind of shameful and embarrassing for the companies that they won't do this Home Depot actually did Home Depot announcing their most recently quarterly earnings that they're going to be making a number of their pay change that they did permanent and it's gonna result in a billion dollars in additional compensation every year. Um Yeah, way judging the morality of it. Clearly, Amazon doesn't feel like they need to hike them the pay rates in order to attract employees and prevent them from unionizing and continue to protest the low pay, But, uh, I I hope that they changed their mind, and I hope that shoppers like us draw attention to it. Um But you know WALMART Amazon plenty of other retailers lows, all saying that, you know they've stopped any of the hazard paper programs that they were doing back in March, March and April of this year. I don't currently have any new ones planned. So that's I guess problem over the last 50 years that we have effectively said Look, we're not going to judge this based on morality. We're just gonna judge this based on whether or not it's good for the company. I think it's hugely problematic and I'm glad to know why it was. Why don't we start by judging the morality then? Find this sucks. You guys are raking in $200 billion of extra profit. Give some back to your employees. Don't worry just about the shareholders and in particular, let's talk about worrying about the shareholders because I want to mention lows, and I'm gonna call those out here because you mentioned Home Depot for doing things the right way. Those said that they had paid out $800 million in pandemic related benefits to employees. At the same time, the company said that they were expecting to buy back about $3 billion of their own stock in the fourth quarter alone. So, basically Okay. And here's Here's where my big issue is. Lows, is saying that spending that $3 billion on stock buybacks to benefit shareholders, which again they're entitled to do Okay is obviously more important to them than spending more money, probably a fraction of that to actually provide sufficient protection. For their employees in terms of testing, PPE all those types of things I know they obviously do. You know, they provide those things they've said, Look, we spent $800 million on it. But when you look at it, there's a 4 to 1 ratio in spending that's going to shareholders compared to employees just for the most recent quarter. Isn't that the fundamental problem that a lot of people have with big business is that they feel that the little guy the person who's working is fundamentally disadvantaged compared to someone who has the capital to invest in that business to begin with. Yes, that is the problem, but I blame all of us for it. None of us have been willing to have, you know, hold their feet to the fire and say OK, Amazon, you're doing this to your employees. I'm canceling my Amazon subscription and no longer shopping at your store. Wal Mart. Same story for you. You guys, you know, make all of your stuff in China and outsource a bunch of jobs outside the U. S. And pay your employees garbage and get them on. You know, food stamps and government benefits. We all still shop at Walmart. So you know I Yes, I blame the employees and a little bit of corporate morality would go a long way. But I blame all of us, too, because we're also Old shopping there. We're all still buying the stock. We are absolutely and this is something where we're all guilty of this, And it's something that we all need to understand because you know, you mentioned the outsourcing of jobs that is, the is the opposite side of the exact same corner. When you look at you know the outsourcing of jobs to other countries for at significantly lower costs. It's saying, Look, this is good for the company. But now we've got thousands of people who have lost jobs simply because the company is saying, Hey, we're going to do this in order to help shareholders. I'm all about trying to innovate to make things you know better. Certainly, like when you talk about, you know, the pride that we have in American business. It's the idea of innovation and pushing the envelope and trying to come up with new ways to do news. Things through free enterprise is the idea. Hey, through competition and through going, you know, add it with other companies. You can figure out better ways to build a better mousetrap. Build a better car. Build a better whatever the heck you're building. Those the things that we want to encourage the things that we don't want to encourage, Okay? Is low saying, Hey, we're gonna spend $3 billion on buybacks because we don't have any way to spend that three billion toe actually innovate any better. We don't have a better way, You know, to stack lumber. So instead we're going to spend $3 Billion on stock buybacks. Hey, Wal Mart? Yeah, we're gonna outsource. You know a bunch of production to China, not because they have a better way of actually building anything but because they have a cheaper way because they have lower labor standards where we can pay people less.

"Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes, commenting yesterday on what should and should not be investigated between the Jacob Lake Police involved shooting and the Kyle Rittenhouse case. The shooting and killing of Two rioters. Injuring of another guy's investigation is ongoing. But we don't need an investigation and know that Blake shooting falls in a long and painful pattern of violence, and this is a pattern of violence that happens against black lives too often. Across this country. And as you all know, we saw even more gun violence unfold on Tuesday night when two protesters were tragically killed in one other injured by gunshots.

What about Violence against police officers, including committed by Jacob Blake, resisting arrest prior to him being shot.
