Stories from essential workers
From grocery store workers to healthcare professionals, thousands of essential workers have found themselves on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic. Recently, BuzzFeed asked them to show what it's actually like at their jobs right now. Here’s some of what they said: "I work at a restaurant that’s considered essential. I have to constantly wash my hands and use bleach cleaning products. Even though I use lotion and sleep with gloves on, my hands still crack and bleed." "I'm a cashier, and my experiences with customers run the gamut: I got a rose as a thank-you from one customer, but got coughed on by another customer who was mad about her total." "This is the new normal as a nurse in assisted living: overtired and always unsure of what's next."
