Now Hiring: Grocers Respond To
Increased Demands

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 3/17/2020 10:43:09 PM

In order to keep up with increased demands for food and household supplies grocery store chains are ramping up hiring. This is a bit of a silver lining for many who are temporarily unemployed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Radical steps are being taken across the country in response to the coronavirus, especially during the next fifteen days, a period of time the public health professionals view as critical. If you saw the Trump administration’s press briefing with the COVID-19 task force, you know that the next 15 days will likely determine the severity of the spread of the virus across the United States.

Comments:

If any LDotters know of friends or family members who need some temporary employment, suggest that they inquire at their local grocery.

Basically food is going to the grocery stores for consumption instead of Resturants. The rich get rich and the poor get poorer.

If the next 15 days is critical we may be screwed. That’s about when all the spring break participants return home.

I noticed a new employee being trained as a cashier at a Food Lion in Denver, NC today. I bet (hope) this is going on all over the country now.

Americans will adapt and overcome, usually with new and ingenious ways. Opportunities to help others, while helping ourselves, will abound. People are already getting used to the new public restrictions and local organizations are stepping up by modifying their services, rather than just closing and sitting on their hands. The panic is already subsiding and will dissipate. The Fake News will be unable to keep up the hysteria until the end of the month. Black Swan events not only impact political and economic systems, they also provide stimulus for social and cultural changes. A constant criticism of our modern technologically driven world is the fast pace at which it moves. During the next few weeks the focus of Americans will be turned towards home and away from the world. Think of it as a little time out from who you are. It is interesting this event should happen during Lent. It is a popular time for Catholics to make a retreat, a day or weekend spent in prayer and contemplation. Perhaps our God has sent America an opportunity for such a moral and spiritual reassessment in preparation for the battles that lie ahead. Be not afraid. God is working in the world.

To go & Food delivery was popular at Walmart & grocery stores before the virus. Now it’s became essential for some people especially the elderly & disabled.

If truckers can't bring the food to the stores, we have another problem. One trucker called in today about restaurants and fast food closing and how they can't always get food to eat. Can't exactly pull an 18 wheeler up to the drive thru.

Let's hope that some of the restaurant workers put out of work by this can get on for these jobs. They required restaurants to close at midnight tonight, we were going to go out to support a favorite restaurant. They went over early to take-out only, and another didn't answer the phone. 🙁 I was hoping to give them at least a tiny boost before the shudown. I'll be seeing about take out....but that doesn't help the waitresses at the one we go to on Fridays.

After the Dropkick Murphys were forced to cancel their St. Patrick’s Day performances because of the COVID-19 coronavirus, the band figured out a way to ship out a bit of Boston to the world, livestreaming a concert Tuesday night. The Boston punk rockers are hardly the only musical acts turning to livestreaming or posting homemade videos to entertain fans during the pandemic. On Monday, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin announced an impromptu concert on the band’s Instagram page as part of Australian nonprofit Global Citizen’s “Together at Home” initiative. Shortly after Martin announced his concert, singer John Legend introduced one of his own.

Several distilleries are making sure their communities have what they need during the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. When Eight Oaks Farm Distillery founder Chad Butters heard the price of hand sanitizer had skyrocketed, he decided to be the solution to the problem, according to the Associated Press (AP). Monday, his distillery in New Tripoli, Pennsylvania, filled 20 bottles with homemade alcohol-based disinfectant that will be donated to charitable groups who have none. This week, the distillery plans to ramp up production and offer the bottles at local farmers’ markets and on its website.

Amazon announced Monday it will invest over $350 million to open up 100,000 new jobs and to increase pay by $2 per hour in the U.S. and around the world during the coronavirus pandemic. The Seattle-based multinational e-commerce company, said Dave Clark, senior vice president of worldwide operations, in a press release that it is seeing a “significant increase in demand” and accompanying “unprecedented” labor needs. The 100,000 new jobs would be full- and part-time positions “across the U.S. in our fulfillment centers and delivery network to meet the demand from people relying on Amazon’s service during this stressful time, particularly those most vulnerable to being out in public.”

Colleges and universities around the country are beginning to cancel their graduation and commencement ceremonies in response to the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak. According to a report by Campus Reform, some universities and colleges have decided that they are preemptively canceling graduation and commencement ceremonies as a precautionary measure against the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. The University of Michigan and UC Irvine are among the schools that have already called off their graduation festivities. The Associated Press released a report this week detailing graduation ceremony cancellations. The report noted that universities and colleges often spend substantial sums on graduation ceremonies. Canceling commencement can carry financial implications for schools.

We all know that Democrats, in the media and politics, lie about Trump. The most famous is the assertion that President Trump called white supremacists “fine people.” That hoax’s reach perfectly exemplifies the old American saying that “falsehood will fly from Maine to Georgia, while truth is pulling her boots on.” Even though it’s been repeatedly, and definitively, debunked, myriad people will state with fervor that Trump is a racist who loves Neo-Nazis. With coronavirus in the air and an election looming, the same culprits behind the “fine people” hoax are now trying to tar Trump with a different hoax. This one is the claim that he and John Bolton,

What’s worse? The rapid spread of a novel virus which originated in China or the media hysteria created and broadcast around the world? If it was the intent of the American media to create a state of fear and panic, they’ve succeeded brilliantly. The dissemination of information pertinent to the virus has morphed into a murky river of rumors, innuendo, outright lies and blather proffered by pundits who are neither doctors nor experts on much of anything other than opinionating. Despite the media hype, COVID-19 is not the first world pandemic and it won’t be the last. As long as humans have walked the earth,

One of the few things this Wuhan virus panic has been good for is getting us all a nice close look at what constitutes #Resistance–leftist and NeverTrump alike–self-pleasuring material. As with so much else that has been thrown at President Trump, the allegations of misfeasance and malfeasance melt away under any scrutiny. No, President Trump didn’t disband the NSC’s capability to deal with pandemics. No President Trump didn’t cause the delay in developing a US test kit. Yes, President Trump has removed bureaucratic impediments to approval of testing devices.

“Never let a crisis go to waste.” That famous quote has become a hard rule in the left’s playbook and they use it to the point of abusing it. It doesn’t matter what it is, be it the loss of innocent life at the hands of a madman or a pandemic that started in a foreign country and now threatens ours. The media has been working overtime to see to it that the Wuhan virus pandemic that has swept the globe is a consistent weight on Trump’s presidency.

There appears to be a coordinated effort amongst Democrats and the media to destroy the public’s confidence in the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. It’s irresponsible and causing panic. I have no doubt that when this pandemic is over it will be clear the Trump administration handled it far better than Obama handled the H1N1 pandemic. I think the media knows this too, so they’re working overtime trying to erode the public’s faith in the Trump administration’s response in the hopes of ruining his chances of being reelected. And Trump, being Trump, isn’t letting them get away with it. He’s compared the Obama administration’s response to the H1N1 pandemic

All sorts of businesses are being negatively impacted by emergency orders shutting down various social activities. This is particularly true of bars and restaurants, and operations ranging from veterinary offices to theaters are feeling the pinch. But what about sex workers? It turns out that brothels are seeing a massive drop street traffic (if you’ll pardon the pun) as people hunker down in their homes to wait out the COVID-19 storm. And that’s particularly true in Germany, where brothels are both legal and numerous in the larger cities.

A friend tweeted from Ireland (in time for St. Patrick’s Day), blaming President Trump for the major decline in the value of stocks. This same friend credited Barack Obama’s economic policies when the Dow Jones Industrial Averages approached 30,000. This — and more — is part of our political, economic and medical divide with mixed messages coming from supposed professionals, amateurs and people who don’t know what they are talking about. According to Dictionary.com, “panic” is “a sudden overwhelming fear, with or without cause, that produces hysterical or irrational behavior, and that often spreads quickly through a group of persons or animals.”

Democratic debates in times of coronavirus make for even less interesting television than during normal times, whatever that means in the Trump era. In Sunday night’s debate, Bernie Sanders had a double task. For the believers, to make a last pitch that he is the better candidate (which, in terms of the presidency, he clearly is). For the realists, his task was to push the inevitable nominee, Joe Biden, more to the left. He probably achieved neither, as Biden stole the show, by announcing (cleverly) that he will pick a female vice-presidential candidate, a progressive weak point of Sanders (who

Once upon a time, Jennifer Rubin was an intelligent woman. Things started to go downhill when she went to work for the Washington Post, but what really flipped the switch in her brain was seeing Donald Trump become president. Not only did she lose perspective, but she also lost intelligence, self-restraint, and decency. Her latest flight of NeverTrump nastiness has her speculate about possible Republican deaths during a time of coronavirus. Her speculation not only reveals an even further degradation of mind and soul, but she's got things entirely bass-ackwards wrong – and a couple of maps prove it.

On August 18, 1944, Senator Harry S. Truman met President Franklin D. Roosevelt for lunch at the White House. Truman had just been nominated to be Roosevelt’s running mate that year, and the two men dined on the White House lawn and chatted about the upcoming campaign. Truman had not seen the president for over a year and was shocked at Roosevelt’s haggard appearance. He noticed that FDR was so ill that he couldn’t even pour cream into his coffee. Despite seeing direct evidence of Roosevelt’s poor health, Truman told reporters afterwards that Roosevelt “Looked fine...He’s as keen as a briar.” Truman was lying. Roosevelt was a dying man,
