    Change FedEx To Win: ‘Terrified’ Package Delivery Employees Are Going to Work Sick

    Hour after hour, day after day, the packages keep arriving: food, medicine, clothes, toys and a million other items brought to the doorsteps and building lobbies of Americans who are hunkering down as the coronavirus sweeps the land.
    An increasing number of the workers sorting those boxes, loading them into trucks and then transporting and delivering them around the country have fallen sick.
    They have coughs, sore throats, aches and fevers — symptoms consistent with the coronavirus. Yet they are still reporting for their shifts in crowded shipping facilities and warehouses and truck depots, fearful of what will happen if they don’t.
    “I have been coming in sick because I’m worried that I’ll lose my job or just be punished if I call out,” said Angel Duarte, a package handler at a UPS hub in Tucson, Ariz. “I am 23, and I have no savings, and I have a 4-month-old son.”

    This is gonna get to a very sticky place.. My son has one of his asst managers who has a few young children telling him she doesn't want to come to work for fear of the virus. She deals with people all day long. I understand where she is coming from . She is also in fear that if she doesn't go to work she will lose her job. Catch 22.. My son has turned it over to human resources. It's an auto parts business and in New York considered essential.

    Hannity had a good show today. He had 2 or 3 doctors on who have been successful fighting the virus with 2 medicines. One of them dealt with over 300 people and all were cured. It was the kind of shows which should be done by all the media....Hope feels better than the fear I've heard on both sides till today.
