A COVID-19 Economy: I’m Not Worried About the 1%. I’m Terrified for the Bottom 50%.

(16.03.2020)

I am worried about all of the people who are usually standing behind the counter asking me what vegetables I want with my tofu, and putting carrots or broccoli or whatever into my bowl. I am worried about the people who clean this restaurant, who prepare the food in the back, who deliver the food to staff here every day.

I am worried about the millions of Americans in millions of restaurants and bars and retail shops like this one living paycheck-to-paycheck, facing the potential of cut hours, full closures, no sick leave, no benefits, and no outside income to cushion them through this disaster whatsoever. That is the reality of over half our country.

If these people – millions and millions of us – are not working, are they going to be paying their cell phone bills? Their credit card bills? Are they going to be bringing their kids to music class? Are they going to be able to pay for even the most basic necessities like groceries or rent?

I think it is between Dominic Raab and Sajid Javid. If it goes to party members, Raab as a committed brexiteer will win. But MPs might try & block Raab from getting on the ballot, perhaps with another Remainer like Hammond, in which case Javid would win.
