Supermarket Cashier Says She Put in 70 Hours a Week to Cover for Sick Coworkers
A trip to the grocery store is getting more and more risky, as COVID-19 numbers are spiking at grocery stores in the Los Angeles area. At one Food For Less in Palmdale, 23 employees have tested positive for the virus in the past two weeks. Staff are concerned about their health being at risk if the store stays open for the holiday season. Cashier Barabara Hughes wears two masks and two sets of gloves while on the clock, and says she has worked 70-hour weeks to cover for sick coworkers.
