    Re: Coronavirus

    Speaking solely to the social distancing part of that article, Costco’s Canadian locations are certainly doing a better job than what’s purported there. I have been to 3 over the last 2 weeks and each have implemented strict rules on how many customers can be in the store at one time, the amount of cashiers, aisle/line distribution and, at one place a little further out of the city, they made cars park with one full space apart by putting pilons through the lot. Perhaps these are the exceptions that prove the rule, but I thought it interesting enough to bring up.

    In regards to some of the other things brought up there, as a long time shareholder, I’ll have to re-think my investment in a company that’s party to that sort of behaviour. I’d just like some factual proof, because Costco has long been considered one of the better companies to work for, even going as far as offering health insurance benefits (in the US) to its part time staff. A lot of what’s posted there doesn’t seem to gel with a company that holds to ideals like that.

    Grass is always greener on the other side obviously so it could be my friend's just being whiny or his particular branch is shite. Who knows.

    EDIT: I suppose its worth noting he predominantly works before the customers actually come in and does a lot of the more secluded tasks so fortunately for him he doesnt really deal with exposure as much.

    Re: Coronavirus

    I'm having a very difficult time believing that this is occurring in both Costco and Canada. Costco is renowned for how well they treat their employees. I'd also be even more concerned if with that knowledge, that contacting the local authorities would be the end of an extent of one's actions. An entire group of authorities claiming it's hard to contract as well? Something just isn't entirely adding up here.

    Funnily enough, Matt Hancock has also tested positive, and Chris Whitty has symptoms.

    Meanwhile, in Hamilton, some 18 year old McDonalds employee faked a doctors note saying she had tested positive. The store shut down and I’m sure all the other employees were freaking out that they’d been exposed to it. She was charged.

    Sure, Donny. You're the expert. You said so on Twitter, at least.

    Also, during the signing today..


    1. No Democrats were allowed to attend the coronavirus signing by order of the White House.


    2. No social distancing was practiced at the bill signing.



    What a petty, deranged individual. Much to be expected from a psychopathic megalomaniac with despot aspirations.

    For real, this is some scary shit and if I see one more person walk out of a Walmart bathroom without washing their hands, shit's going down.

    Your POTUS, ladies and gentlemen. A petty and sophomoric manchild, who despite completely fumbling the entire situation demands praise or refuses to help his own country.

    In a reasonable country, this man would have been ousted long ago.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    The basic scientific logic is lacking once again in this country as I see people ask how Boris Johnson and his advisers have caught this virus. Erm, they're humans too?

    Re: Coronavirus

    I mean... who isn't surprised that the guy who said he shook hands with loads of Coronavirus patients has it? Fucking idiot.

    UK was supposed to have an apparently great theoretical pandemic response yet there's been no signs of it? However alot of the public are playing their part.

    The hypocrisy surrounding the NHS right now is disgusting and if it collapses due to demand then it falls squarely on the shoulders of those who have chipped away at it over the last few years. Got to love how NHS workers are now noticed as being 'essential' despite alot of them being under the 25k salary range that Patel thinks is the 'skilled' threshold.

    Boris doesn't deserve Coronavirus or anything like that but I really hope this puts a new perspective on things. The Government are now suddenly able to speed up benefits, care about the NHS alot and help the vulnerable. Never minding the magic money tree that has appeared as well.

    Wonder if the same people who cheered and clapped the failed Nurses pay rise were out clapping the NHS workers earlier this week? Shit stinks.

    Re: Coronavirus

    It does and I do hope those that are keeping this country going at the moment get everything they deserve when all this blows over.

    If that means the Tories swallowing their pride and admitting they fucked up then that is what needs to happen. Our country runs on the workers on the ground not anyone higher up.

    Corbyn gave an interview yesterday basically pointing all this out. Probably not the best time for "told you so's...", but the man has a point
