I have been seeing on the television about people staying home, because of the Coronavirus, or being asked to stay at home.
This made me think of when we owned our family restaurant. We paid the cooks well, but servers, at that time where only getting $2.19 an hour + tips. If they stayed at home they wouldn’t get wages, and even if they came to work, how many people would come to eat out.
We have a little independent coffee shop close by, and this morning there was only 1 vehicle outside. That was probably the owner’s car. I can obviously understand why, but it’s sad to see.
Everyone is hurting in one way or another, whether it’s the stock market, trying to get flights home , or not going on vacation.
The precautions needed to be put in place, but my heart goes out to so many people.
