Yeah either way I don't think it inspires any action

In the one case, cool, you guys got this I don't have to worry about it

In the other case, cool, if I ever need some I know where to go

Is there a link to something that supports that stat? As someone in the service industry I'm always curious about how covid has specifically affected my profession

i don't see any sources, *but* anna studies labor in the restaurant industry pretty closely and is typically pretty responsible with her fact-citing.

here's one early study of this stuff though
https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.01.21.21250266v1

Using death records from the California Department of Public Health, we estimated excess mortality among Californians 18–65 years of age by occupational sector and occupation, with additional stratification of the sector analysis by race/ethnicity. During the COVID-19 pandemic, working age adults experienced a 22% increase in mortality compared to historical periods. Relative excess mortality was highest in food/agriculture workers (39% increase), transportation/logistics workers (28% increase), facilities (27%) and manufacturing workers (23% increase). Latino Californians experienced a 36% increase in mortality, with a 59% increase among Latino food/agriculture workers. Black Californians experienced a 28% increase in mortality, with a 36% increase for Black retail workers. Asian Californians experienced an 18% increase, with a 40% increase among Asian healthcare workers. Excess mortality among White working-age Californians increased by 6%, with a 16% increase among White food/agriculture workers.

wondering what kinda evidence would be required to appeal and/or toss out the result entirely, as more and more of amazon's shenanigans come to light
