I’m a health care worker, & tired of the “Thank You Essential Workers”, and “Thank You Health Care Workers”, even a “Superhero in Scrubs Lives Here” sign
How does donning scrubs & sneakers & doing a job you signed on to do, knowing fully the risks, getting issued free protective gear by your employer, make one a hero? My trash collector is an essential worker who still has a job.
Collecting garbage once a week is now heroic?! Far as risks to nurses and those dealing directly with patients, tuberculosis has not left the U S.
Why start the “hero” worship with COVID 19? Some of us have accidentally stuck ourselves with broken glass or needles during procedures or autopsy, upping the ante of testing HIV+, & some, due to liver diseases like hepatitis, cannot take the antiviral prophylactic.
Why start the worship with COVID, as risk isn’t new? Why at all, as most of us aren’t forced into nursing or any health care job?
I agree with Pat Sajak and his Twitter followers. He’s right.
I’m sick of politicians and wealthy celebrities who aren’t cash strapped issuing messages like “Stay Home if You Can”, and the “hero” worship of health care workers while small business owners & their livelihoods get ■■■■ on as “inessential”.
