    I think Team Trump is too ignorant, racist and heartless to care. Sad story 😥

      Trancendental The individual store was too selfish to supply gloves and masks. Trump leaves it up to each state governor. The cities leave it up to the mayor in turn leave it up to each individual business. President is not a dictatorship. He does not have that power without marshal law

      @Shirley Heinbockel she didn’t die from COVID-19.

      Mik S. I think as humanity we have to STOP with the bashing!! When are THE PEOPLE going to stand together and reflect HUMANITY!! The current state of our government doesn’t even have ONE side Republican or Democrat that are acting like caring individuals able to put shortsighted and self absorbed insults aside during one of the most horrific times of all times!!

      We as humanity have got to be bigger than the bashing ppl that currently represent us! They can’t even report safety and lifesaving information without bad mouthing! If death doesn’t move them to do so WE ARE IN TROUBLE IF WE DONT START REFLECTING SOMETHING BETTER INSTEAD of bad mouthing due to political preference!!!

      We must be better than

      @Ericka Watson it seems like you passed Ebonics 101..But your doing the same thing the person you directed your comment too was doing and who you are trying to correct, but in a more subtle manner..It’s Soo funny how other African Americans try to correct other African Americans but do it in a hypocritical manner in which they are speaking about..Are you inteligent enough that you can find the Hypocritical statement in your comment? I don’t think you are..

      God we need your help

  3. There will be lawsuits against essential businesses that didn’t protect their employees.

      @Black Magick Genetics nope your name suits you dog nuts.

      @Dulcelina Cabral Are you offended about my Opinion or the Facts? Because there one in the same..I’m not into name calling but logical thinking and communication with understanding..your simply not on my level to reply to anything else you have to say..I’m sure you will try to decrypt this message but such a simple minded person as yourself just won’t get it..you one of the sheep..

      @Dulcelina Cabral you can flood this chat with profanity all you want it just proves my point about “Your Type of People” not educated and lack of common sense..

    • There should be a class action lawsuit against the president! He’s the ring leader that could’ve/should’vr done something sooner and is STILL not doing enough! 😥😠 I am so sorry to the millions of families who have lost someone, so tragicly. 😥🙏

      @Lia Binetti why wouldn’t you feel that way towards the Chinese Govt? Are you a communist? Ebola originated from the Democratic Republic of Congo..Those are your ancestry people..

  4. These companies are so heartless I can’t take it

  5. This is happening in one of the richest countries in the world.

    • @g chin well said. Trumpsters can’t handle the truth.

    • @HybridFlu and evil ppl

    • Nikki Velazco | April 25, 2020 at 4:35 AM | Reply

      @g chin I really wish people would quit putting the value of their life on their president! Presidents come and go , whomever is in office at any particular time does NOT define who you are as an individual and should have no bearing on what happens in your day to day! We as a whole people are led astray by a handful of politicians. We owe it to ourselves to quit looking at individual people of authority to dictate what is and is not in our best interest!

    • Isn’t it appalling and disgusting, but not surprising considering the person in charge.

    • David Cammeron | April 28, 2020 at 10:33 PM | Reply

      This what they led the world to believe. Only a minute of people have riches.
      The first time I came face to face with poverty was a trip to NY. In the early eighties. To say the least I was so shocked . I was never the same.

    I am so glad they let her go on and talk instead of interrupting. This was so important to hear about what the workers are dealing with.

  7. If anyone says this isn’t real ONE MORE TIME … my heart is absolutely broken. Please stay healthy and try to stay home.

      YOU CAN HEAR SOMEONE LAUGHING IN THE BACKROOM, THEN TRY TO RUFFLE THE MIC TO COVER IT…

    Trump has alot of ppl blood on his hands. We could’ve been doing something BUT TRUMP CALLED IT A HOAX!

    • I hate him

    • NOPE! As much as I dont like him. He did exactly what he was supposed to do after he found out it was serious. We luckiky didnt have cases yet by time he realized. He shut dont everything that he was ALLOWED to. We are grown human beings who can decide for ourselves which comes first… Our lives or our jobs. So dont put this one on him smh.sorry but she knew better. Today there are people out here still working and walking around like nothing.

    • Corrynthia I AM | April 30, 2020 at 4:41 PM | Reply

      @Toya He knew about it since LATE DECEMBER /EARLY JANUARY. Now I will be fair and say in ALL OF HIS AND OUR LIFETIME WE NEVER experienced something like this. But he knew and did NOTHING IN THE BEGINNING. And the fact that he continues to down play it and lie about how well we handle d it compared to other countries is a lie. And we not ready to open back up; because we dont know who all has it.

      And not only that you give her recognition pen/button a year later ANNND after she’s dead…. Why wasn’t she recognized at the time she accomplished this milestone 🤔 Where was HR/Management? Obviously, they didn’t value her service….how insulting. I guess they thought this was enough to console her mother and to top it off the big bonus…$21.64!!! Smh over and over

    • she worked 2 hours

    • @Free how do you know?
